2003 World Champions Florida Marlins Ring (Mills - Scout) in Elaborate Original Box
Florida Marlins team scout Spencer Mills was awarded this championship ring following the South Florida ballclub's 2003 World Series triumph over the New York Yankees. Several cubic zirconiums and red-colored stones form a baseball motif, atop which rests the gold-colored Marlins emblem. Raised lettering bordering this elaborate presentation proclaims, "WORLD CHAMPIONS." On one side, "MILLS" and "SCOUT" flank the detailed representation of a World Series trophy; the opposing shank exhibits the series records for each one of the Marlins' postseason victories, as well as the World Series emblem. Minimum bid $2,500.
Cubic zirconiums? The scouts didn't get the ones with actual diamonds? Maybe that is normal or it could be that the club was rather cheap, I don't know.
Whatever the case, if you have always wanted a Florida Marlins 2003 World Series ring, now is your chance.
