Description

In 1987, Tony Gwynn won his second batting title that season after hitting .370. It was the highest average in the NL since Stan Musial hit .376 in 1948.  He also stole 56 bases and became the first NL player to hit .370 and steal 50 bases. He had a hit in 82 percent of the 155 games he batted. His 218 hits also led the league. His average, hits, runs and triples were all Padre records. Although he only hit seven homers, Gwynn was second in the league with 26 intentional walks, which was indicative of the reverence for his hitting prowess.

In order to commemorate the amazing accomplishment of winning his second batting title in 1987, Tony Gwynn commissioned special gold rings in order for people to share in his, hardwork, pride and success. This is one of those rings that was available. A personal note from Gwynn and signed by him, accompanies the ring for provenance.
