Coming off the pitching Triple Crown in 1985 (wins, ERA and strikeouts), Dwight Gooden was the anchor of the 1986 New York Mets pitching staff that ran away with the National League Eastern Division title en route to the dramatic World Series victory over the Boston Red Sox. Teaming with Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter, first baseman Keith Hernandez and a star-studded pitching staff that included himself, Ron Darling and Bob Ojeda, Gooden capped off his third straight season of at least 200 strikeouts with a 17-6 record and 2.84 ERA as the Mets won their second World Series title in franchise history, and last to-date.

Gooden was presented with this 12-inch tall, scale-model replica of the Commissioner’s [World Series] Trophy created by the Balfour sports industry jewelers. The classic design features 28 gold- colored pennants labeled with the names of every Major League team circling a golden crown on top of a golden band with a silver baseball set at the base of the ring’s interior. New York Mets and Boston Red Sox press pins are mounted on smaller golden flag poles in front of the crowned band. “World Series Champions New York Mets 1986 Dwight Gooden” is printed on a gold band circling the 23-inch diameter black wooden base. A Balfour manufacturer’s sticker is on the underside of the base. This trophy comes with a LOA signed by Dwight Gooden. Please note that the LOA mentions a 1987 New York Mets Tidewater ring that is not included with this lot.
