The 2008 Philadelphia Phillies World Series Ring
Posted by at 2:58 pm ET 76 Comments

There are many perks that come with being a World Series champion.  But there’s only one fits on your finger and comes encrusted with thousands of dollars worth of diamonds.  To the victors go the spoils:

  • Wilson

    That’s some major bling!

  • http://phillybri.blogspot.com Brian

    Damn! Eaton just got the fucking business!

  • http://scrappleplusiggs.blogspot.com Civil Negligence

    Steve Jeltz would like to know why Milt Thompson got a ring and he didn’t.

  • will.H

    great ceremony, but what a stupid fucking thing to do.. booing someone at a ring ceremony. its about 3,000 know it alls that cant appreciate the fact that he could have stayed in baltimore but he showed up like a man to get booed. dumb fucking fans who dont represent me one bit. im all about bein a passionate fan, maybe a bit angry at times, but at a ring ceremony? i was embarrassed.. shit like that overshaddows an occassion that should be remembered with pride and dignity.

    14 karats and 103 diamonds can’t save the Phils from giving up 2 runs in the 1st inning for the 3rd straight game.

    That’s a shitty pattern to fall into.

  • http://www.inphillywetrust.blogspot.com/ Joey Wade

    i was hoping they could take the energy from the ceremony into the game with them… apparently not.

  • http://phillybri.blogspot.com Brian

    Down 1-2-3 in the first. WAKE UP GUYS!!!

  • Paul

    i heard that if you stare hard enough at the diamonds in the middle of the ring the word “FUCKING” becomes visible to complete the phrase “WORLD FUCKING CHAMPIONS”

  • Get Me outta Cleveland and back to Philly

    Pat Who?….go Ibanez.

  • http://phillybri.blogspot.com Brian

    Finally, somebody that wants to play!

  • Section 147 – Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!!

    Can we get a picture of those on a T-Shirt in the Birdland store??????

  • http://pabseball.blogspot.com GM-Carson

    Our starting pitching is really shitting the bed.

  • Gonzo

    I saw a fan in the stands with the ring on a tshirt today on TV. I doubt Meech can do one of those, considering the P is copyrighted.

  • http://www.superfantabulousblog.blogspot.com maria

    What a comeback.

    I want a ring.

  • http://kingsofwrestling.net/smf/index.php Hummer

    you know how Dash did that whole ‘top 11 games of the regular season’ or whatever the hell it was called? im calling it right now, this game will be on it before next season

  • PhillyCubano

    @Hummer

    I was thinking the same thing…

    Why was this game important?
    It got the train rolling and Philly fans welcomed Raul Ibanez as a suitable replacement for Pat the Bat

  • PhiPhan5648

    I’m back from WRESTLEMANIA 25, and needless to say I was pretty fucking pissed about the Phils shitty as play the past two days, but when I saw those massive rings, I smiled from ear to ear. Those are some beautiful works of art.

    Oh… and Thank you Lidge, for staying perfect… but please, no more close calls like that inning… yeesh.

  • G8302

    wow…..some people just have no class….honestly that’s just sad….it’s like seriously GET A LIFE to boo a guy just for that? come on now……that’s the most ridiculous thing i’ve ever heard…..especially at a ring ceremony…..poor guy…give him a break sheesh…..

  • http://Yahoo Pat Reilly

    He may have been Boo’d, and he may really suck, but guess what? He has a World Series Ring. Theres a lot of great player that don,t have one. And what about those Wins he had. Without them, Phillies would not have made it. NO CLASS!

  • detroit finest

    you philly fan are nuts enjoy your championship take pride in your four major sports teams sorry your not as good as my detroit teams tigers redwings pistons and maybe the lions this year

  • Blazing Angel

    screw them! booing someone who did nothing to harm anyone is wrong!

  • phillyphanalltheway

    listen, to all those haters of us whp are non band wagon jumping, all around philly sport fans, who love their teams even though they do stupid things or just all around suck! we pay the salaries of these guys and should be able to boo whoever the hell we want! we pay the salaries and all so back off you non loving philly sports fans! you all suck!!!!!

  • http://kingsofwrestling.net/smf/index.php Hummer

    @PhiPhan5648, if you were at Mania, I implore you to click on my name and be transported to the greatest wrestling board IN THE WORLD…shilling over. I apologize.

    uh anyway,…No Class? Did nothing to harm? screw us? Not sure if any of you, uh, know what it is that Adam Eaton did last year. I’m not entirely positive you completely realize just how fucking horrible and how much of a waste of money the guy was. and all the while, he didn’t acknowledge that he was fuckin up, that he didn’t deserve that money, he just kept saying ‘I can pitch…I can pitch…’. Evidently not. Guys an asshole, contributed nothing to the fucking team, and didn’t play any type of role in the playoffs where they actually won the trophy. He’s fucking lucky his lousy ass got a ring.

  • Cam

    Booing at the ring ceremony is about as classy as the knuckleheads who found it necessdary to use the F word in the comment section. What’s that you say? WORLD F—— Champions? GET A LIFE. Phillie fans deserve the reputation they work so hard to earn. Disgraceful Bunch

  • will.H

    cam you’re the kind of weakling that sits back and waits for something like this to happen just to act like a big baby. its ok to judge the situation, but you dont know anythign about phils fans as a whole. you’ve catagorized all of them into one catagory which doesnt sound too mature to me. get off your soapbox and hit the books. you have a lot to learn, kiddo.

  • leigh wells

    YO WILL H. YOUR A BITCH! YOU MUST BE A WOMAN CAUSE U SOUND LIKE ONE. IF YOUR FROM PHILLY THEN YOUR A DISGRACE TO OUR CITY. PUT YOUR HEAD DOWN IN SHAME. THERES 3 THINGS WE LIKE FIGHTING, CHEESE STEAKES, AND OUR SQUADS. AND 2 THINGS WE DONT LIKE THE POLICE AND A BITCH REPPIN OUR CITY. NORTH PHILLY IN DA HOUSE HOE!

  • Leann

    Oh please I hope one of you looks at and provides commentary on this idiotic blog on yahoo. http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/blog/big_league_stew/post/Hey-Philly-booing-Adam-Eaton-and-his-ring-Belo?urn=mlb,154587

  • B

    pathetic you philly fans out there are ridicuous. you guys wouldnt have even gotten to the world series without him and you boo him at a ring ceremonie. GO CUBS

    Hey Cam- the jerks are on both sides of the aisle.

    I stared at the ring, but all I saw was the word “Phucking” in those diamonds!

    Thx,

    Jay!

  • http://kingsofwrestling.net/smf/index.php Hummer

    @CamSooooooooooo has it become immoral and disgraceful to say the word Fuck? What is this, third grade?

    Well, fuck Meech, its about fuckin time you closed this fuckin place down then. Nobody can say Fuck now, apparently, so there is no fuckin point to continue now. Ya had a good fuckin run boys…a good fuckin run.

    /sarcasm

    Leigh made me lol, by the way. Fuckin police and bitch reppers, mannnnnnnnnnnn

  • soccer fan

    how sad about Eaton. Maybe they ought to get the fans out and let them pitch. Or they could always compare paychecks, lifestyles, credentials. Either way that is one ugly ring! Add some color cheap bastards!

  • soccer fan

    World Champs? What? I didn’t realize that the MLB traveled around the world to play other countries! Wow, when did they start that? WORLD CHAMPS—you have to play other countries to claim ot be WORLD CHAMPS. Lay off the steriods you idiots!

  • http://www.world-fucking-champions.blogspot.com mpennington35@yahoo.com

    shut the fuck up about booing eaton. he was terrible for us, and deserves to be booed. it was harsh, but he knew exactly what was gonna happen when he came back to get his ring. come on, it’s philly. this wasn’t anywhere near as dumb as booing myers in the 2nd inning on sunday.

    and soccer fan, notice the red around the “P.” it’s got color. not too much, just enough. plus, with 103 diamonds, there wasn’t much room for the rainbow of colors you apparently enjoy. or maybe it’s just the rainbows you like…not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it would explain why you enjoy soccer so much.

    and B, you lost any credibility you had when you said “GO CUBS” at the end of your message. cubs fans are probably the dumbest in baseball, overall.

  • http://www.world-fucking-champions.blogspot.com matt

    also, no idea how my email address got published in the spot where my name should be but oh well…

  • Gaze

    One link on yahoo and this place goes to hell in a hand basket. Almost as bad as the recycling topic!

    To put it in perspective for you “out of towners” who didn’t have to experience Adam Eaton and the misery he brought this town:
    If Carl Pavano showed up to collect a ring at Yankee Stadium…
    If Mo Vaughn showed up to collect a ring for the Mets or Angels…
    If Steve Bartman showed up for ring ceremonies for the Cubs…

    Did Eaton deserve to get boo-ed, Not today. We didn’t invent the boo in this town, we just have people who are too passionate to let their guard down for a few moments. It could be a lot worse: during ring ceremonies in Florida, I’d bet the fans don’t even know the names of half their players.

    From what I could here, it was more of a “boo/chuckle” anyway. Eaton seemed to take it in stride.

    RAYS,

    Is English a new thing for you? Is reality? Thanks for playing!

  • Chris K

    Does anyone have the video of the whole ring ceremony?

  • will.H

    ‘como estan, bitcheees?’

    there are so many out of control comments above, i dont know where to begin. ill just say in short, Leigh, you’re typical and i feel sorry for your family, tough guy. Rays fan, good work. did you even watch the world series? and B the cubs fan, i didnt like the booing at the ”ceremonie?” but it was roughly a couple thousand and adam eaton did not help us get to the world series. he helped us about as much as leigh pays child support.

  • Paul F

    Those who would boo at the ring ceremony are the same mindless IDIOTS who scream “You the man!” and/or “Get in the hole!” at golf tournaments. What classless dildoes!

  • http://whatisawebsite? granny grumps

    The mob mentality rules.
    The ring is ugly and looks cheesy even with all the diamonds. it looks like something you would get out of a gum ball machine for fifty cents. Will the guys really wear the thing?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kChDiQVAAE Gigi

    The Toronto Blue Jays are still in Canada, eh? I think that makes the World Series a legit title…

    Don’t you love out of town trolls coming onto our beloved commenting board? Kiss the ring BITCHES!!!!

  • Mickey

    I love the phillies and with that ring on em i love em that much more!!!! seeing that ring makes me think of the super bowl rings

  • True Blue Dodger Fan

    That ring should’ve been ours!!! I hate you Victorino!!!!!

  • http://thefightens.com xX619Xx

    Fuck Philly, what a shit hole city. Take a cheese steak and shove it up your nigger ass. You fucking crack head fagots pay him his 9mil and shut the fuck up, fagot nigger bitches. Fucking crack vials look like fucking cig butts on your shitty streets. The only good thing to come out of Philly was NOT A FUCKING THING. You hear me you fucking cock suckers. Rocky sucks cock, phillys suck cock, eagles suck cock, and so do your fagot aids infested lawyers. Bite me bitches. Like I said, pay him his money and shut your fucking glass dick sucking asses up.

  • http://thefightens.com Go Angels

    Why don’t you go out and pitch if you think you’re so goddamn good? Bunch of sorry ass sofa pitchers. He’s got the ring, money, and great life. Your sorry ass got to go to your crappy job and sleep with your fat ass ghetto wives. Hell my class ring looks better than that piece of shit. What is that aluminum? Philly, a city they should level and start over.

  • PhillyPhan4Eva

    Wow. Those rings totally kick ass.
    Were the “World Fuckin Champions”. _ Chase Utley
    It would not have been possible to win without all of our great players that contributed in the playoff season. It is sooo sad Pat Burell isnt here anymore. We miss him. I hopeeeee he comes back one day. Once your a part of Philadelphia your always a part of Philadelphia!
    Lets do it again!!!!!!!!!

  • j_romes

    Sigh. It’s nice to be on top for once. All out of towners can do is piss into the wind cause the Phils, finally, got the hardware. It’s called envy.

    Oh, and xX619Xx? You’re a classless, racist, bigoted piece of shit. Fuck your mother with a razor blade.

  • Wawa

    Jeezus, these comments are like a minefield. Did these people have nothing else better to do?

  • J-D

    a razor blade? ouch.

    fat ass ghetto wives? are you serious?

  • http://thefightins Brian

    You Philly fans are a fucking joke!

  • Yankees Rule

    And just think…..MY YANKEES HAVE 26 RINGS….

    Low Class Booing a guy at a ring ceremony. Those type Philly Fans Suck!!!!!!!!!!

    Be lucky you got to see one…..You won’t get another ring for a long, long, long, long time.

  • J-D

    Yankees Rule…
    I’d be worrying a little more about CC and Tex shitting the bed.

  • http://www.superfantabulousblog.blogspot.com maria

    Your Yankees have 26 rings but they also have A-Rod.

    Duk puts one link of this website and the floodgates opened.

  • Katherine

    Dang…. Nice ring. And all you haters out there, lets see YOU play baseball and win the world series. SHUT UP! if you can get a team together and beat the phillies, then by all means, do so, but don’t go bashing on them for stuff that they do when you cant even do it. you are all so immature in the way that you voice you opinions. and i am not a phillies fan. AT ALL! but look at what I’m doing as an example for your lousy selves. i am not hating on them or being a bitch about it. the majority of these comments are mean, negative, rude, immature, hateful, stupid, and irresponsible. so just stop. its horrible having to watch “good” americans treat other americans like this…. even if you’re just talking about baseball. the phillies are americans too. so shut it.

  • http://kingsofwrestling.net/smf/index.php Hummer

    Thanks for giving us all this attention, out of town douchebags!

  • TC

    Booing at the ring ceremony — just another example of Philadelphia Class.

  • will.H

    xX619Xx, you represent your area well. some people boo a washed up player, others are disgusting racist lowlifes with no future. which one are you?

  • wc fields

    Let ‘em boo. Whadaya expect.
    They live in Philadelphia.

  • R Graham

    Just shows you again the Phillies SUCK and their fans are the arm-pit of America, No calls fools, go back to your caves and stuff a brat in your pie-hole

  • zman11

    listen phils fans that is a good way to let someone know you know they are a fraud, using what little skills they have to dup teams out of a ton of money, he got his money and his ring we can not do anything about that but we can let him know his con was not appreciated

  • zman11

    hey people stop being mindless republicans and saying what rush limbaugh wants you to say no one liked adam eaton in philly and they just let him know it it is called honesty if the rest of the country would adopt the practice maybe the world would not be full of a- holes that used the banking system to steal all of the money in the world son

  • http://yahoo Jessica

    I say the fans are just that pro sports are the hardest thing to get involved in and we set there and judge them for play mistakes that they make on the field but I could not travel 300 day a year never see my family and risk the rest of my life for a injury that can be peremetnt and all for what a ring that I may only were for awhile so i say good job phillies and to hell with the rest you got the bling and the money not the fans

  • ed

    why do they continue to call league champions, world champions? did the phils win the world baseball classic? did they win in the olympics, or the the other world championships that are held? MLB, NBA, NHL and NFL champions are champions, respectfully, but they shouldn’t be refered to world anything!

  • will.H

    ed, its called the world series. in hockey, youre the stanley cup champions and in football, superbowl champions. In baseball, players from countries around the world play in the world series with hopes of becoming the world champions, smart ass.

    and to the rest of the ‘aww philly is classless’ blog warriors.. philly is a very diverse group. People spend time trying to explain this and that, defend a few things here and there or even articulate why things are this way or that way. Some of us have come to the conclusion that you poor suckers will never understand. You buy all that negative national media attention and never actually understand how to form your own opinion, which is typical. So, fuck you all and your rhetorical insults since you cant think for yourself.. you’ll pull out gentle snubs to try and convince us that youre full of class so we should take after you. Each weak little fan around america wishes they had a city that went crazy for their sports. You go to games, sit and sip on your sprite and never actually put any life into what you’re rooting for. Fuck you and your sad standards on what you think a fan should be. We’re philly fans and we’re not changing because a dickbrain on a blog cant think of anything more interesting to say. You’re jealous, we’re enraged with passion for our sports and thats not something you can change. I am happy to state.. fuck everyone.

  • http://myspace.com/pointblankcopywritten B. EASY

    Alot of tough guys on here. Come to Philly and run ya mouths like that. Eaton is a bum period!!! I don’t think it was right to boo him but phuck it, that’s life and I’m not gonna apologize for us Philadelphians being real.

    To the Rays fan: What do you mean yall deserve the rings? Why didn’t you take em then. 4 games to 1? Come on man.

    Also, why is everybody hatin’ about the rings saying World Champions? That’s ridiculous. If your squad won , there would be no issue. Baseball is mostly made up of non-Americans so the title is correct.

    The rings are the shit and I hope we get another this year. That comeback victory yesterday was a good start. This might be the spark we needed.

    I may disagree but I respect all of your opinions.

    Stay real, Be easy…

    southwest Philly stand up!!!

  • http://yahoo.com Jazzy G

    and people think the Yankee fans are the hard ones…think again! please give c.c. back to the Brewers we need a pitcher!

  • pistolvania

    yo xX619Xx print out what you wrote and get off your fat online shit talking ass and go say that in any part of philly
