2006 St. Louis Cardinals World Series Alternate Championship Ring So Taguchi:
$35000.0

So Taguchi, the only Japanese-born player to ever be a part of the St. Louis Cardinals team, played professional baseball in Japan before signing with the Cardinals as a free agent in 2002. He was on the 2004 World Series roster for the Cardinals and had his best season in 2005, helping the Cardinals to 100 wins and the best record in the National League. He made the post-season roster again in 2006, playing in four of the five World Series games, hitting a go-ahead home run in the top of the 9th in Game 2. Taguchi only played one more season for the Cardinals before signing in 2008 with the Phillies and then move in 2009 to the Cubs. Taguchi moved back to Japan resuming his professional baseball career there until his retirement in 2012. He then started a new career as a professional baseball commentator for Japanese broadcaster NHK announcing MLB games. The top of the ring features the entwined “STL”, which is part of the St. Louis Cardinals logo in diamonds framed by a base path in diamonds with princess cut diamonds representing the four bases. “St. Louis Cardinals World Champions” encircles the outer rim. The right shank the year 2006 is embossed at the top and just below is a replica of the World Series Trophy with two cardinals atop a baseball bat and “Tenth World Series Title” at the bottom. The left shank has “Taguchi” embossed at the top with a replica of Busch Stadium (III) written in the center of the image of the St. Louis Gateway Arch and fireworks in the background. Below that are two crossed bats with a chevron and a cardinal perched on another bat. The rings were made by Intergold which is now owned by Jostens. The ring with a name on the shank is NOT the exact ring that was given to that particular person, but is an exact copy. Authentication pending.
