After finishing the 2004 regular season with a record of 98-64, the Boston Red Sox embarked on a magical playoff run. They first swept the Anaheim Angels, three games to none in the AL Division Series. Next up would be the New York Yankees, and a date with destiny. Down 3-0 in the ALCS, the Red Sox would mount a historic comeback, winning four straight games to win the series, becoming the first team in baseball history to come back from an 0-3 deficit to win a series. In the World Series, Boston won another four straight games, claiming the championship with a sweep over the St. Louis Cardinals and ending the 86-year World Series title drought dating back to 1918.

Presented here is a Jostens 18K gold 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series championship ring, given to Bobby Doerr. Playing his entire career (1,865 games) for Boston, Doerr was a nine-time All-Star who was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986. A Red Sox logo – in red stones – prominently centers the ring’s face, and sits on a baseball diamond design, with blue stone background. “WORLD CHAMPIONS” reads around the bezel setting while a string of diamonds surrounds the entire perimeter. One shank boasts of the team’s feat – “GREATEST COMEBACK IN HISTORY 2004 – with the Red Sox logo and “8 STRAIGHT” at the bottom. The name “DOERR” appears at the top of the other shank, which also shows the World Series trophy set in an image of Fenway Park. “RED SOX 4-0 SWEEP” is below. Inside the band of this approximate size 10 ring is marked “86 YEARS 10-27-04” along with the “JOSTENS 18K” mark. This ring weighs approximately 56.0 grams and includes the original presentation box. The wooden, hinged box reads “2004 WORLD CHAMPIONS” and includes both the 2004 World Series logo and an engraved plate reading “Bobby Doerr 2004”. This ring comes with a LOA from the family of Bobby Doerr.
