Topps‘ 60th anniversary ring (the quick image here does it no justice) features 50 gems and will only be owned by a select few.

How rare will they be? Topps’ order has not been finalized — one could speculate perhaps 60 rings? Maybe more, maybe less …

What’s it worth? We’ll let the market take care of that when they arrive.

But what we do know is this:

— One Beckett Baseball reader will own the ring seen here. (Details to come in upcoming issues.)

— Ten randomly selected hobby shops will receive a ring as part of their Diamond Anniversary Kit to promote the product in stores.

— The remainder of the rings will be given away as part of the Diamond Anniversary program’s online codes found beginning in 2011 Topps Series 1 — the company’s anniversary product — that arrives soon. Code cards are found one in every four packs.

    while I am sure that they will be some who would love to own this, overall i am not one of them. i would be selling that item in a heartbeat and be glad to. while it might boast some rather small diamonds, its use of the TOPPS right in the middle of it and “childish” looking. unless you are an employee of Topps, who would be wearing that around unless that is what you are into. really….advertisement in custom jewelry? would look odd next to a Rolex watch.
