The Red Sox tore through the 2007 season, recording 96 wins to take the AL East. After disposing of the Angels and Indians in the playoffs, Boston swept the Rockies to claim their seventh World Championship. The ’07 team was a true melting pot of American, Japanese and Latin players. No less than four key members of the World Champs were natives of the Dominican Republic: Julio Lugo, Wily Mo Peña, Julián Tavárez, and of course, Big Papi, David Ortiz. Several of the Dominican players were part of Boston’s extensive Latin American development operations, which brings us to the recipient of this World Championship ring, Jean Carlos Blanco.
Blanco was the director of the Red Sox’ Dominican Republic operations, a role deemed so valuable that the Red Sox awarded him a full-size player’s model ring instead of the more streamlined and smaller model customarily given to coaches and front office staff. Blanco’s 14K white gold player’s model ring has the iconic Red Sox logo mounted on a diamond encrusted baseball infield surmounting a blue colored ruby. Total diamond weight comes in at 2.33 carats. “WORLD CHAMPIONS” is engraved around the perimeter of the ring’s face. One shank has a detailed representation of Fenway Park with “7TH WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP” above and “4-0 SWEEP” below in raised letters. The opposite shank has the Red Sox “B” and the World Series trophy with “BLANCO” above and “DR OPS 2007” below. An additional ring of diamonds surrounds the circumference of the piece. The interior bears the Jostens 14K hallmark along with “BOSTON RED SOX 10-28-07” engraved into the surface. Blanco’s ring includes the original 7 ½” x 6 ½” x 4 ½” wood presentation box with “2007 WORLD CHAMPIONS” engraved on the oval-shaped glass opening on the top and features the 2007 World Series logo on its front. A stunning full-size World Championship ring awarded to the man responsible for developing the team’s indispensable Dominican talent pipeline. Weight: 68 grams. Size: 11.
