The St. Louis Cardinals received their 2011 World Series championship rings in a ceremony held before Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium.
Each ring includes the individual's name, number and the years of the Cardinals' 10 previous championships. The underside lists the three playoff series scores and the words "Happy Flight," the Cardinals' clubhouse rallying cry last season coined by shortstop Rafael Furcal. On the side, they even include a tiny rally squirrel running across home plate.
The rings were designed and produced by Jostens, and feature 103 round diamonds and faceted rubies in a 14 karat yellow gold frame. Fans in attendance at Saturday’s game were given replicas of the rings as well.
"We are excited to present the 2011 team with their rings," team president Bill DeWitt III said. "We worked hard to design a ring that would tell the epic story of 2011, and also pay tribute to the great history of the franchise."
