Dodger World Series Championship rings for 1981 and 1988 are below. They come directly from the family of former Dodger scout Don Gutteridge. He was a scout for the Dodgers from 1975 to his retirement in 1992. Via a SABR biography on Gutteridge by David Anderson:
Gutteridge summed up his career in saying, “I was at the right place at the right time and had a good career.” He credited an experience he had when he was 12 years old. “We would have revival meetings. … I went to the preacher after the service and told him how much I wanted to be a ballplayer,” Gutteridge said. “He told me to talk to the Lord, and I did. I prayed to spend my life in baseball and my prayers were answered.”
