So, I happened to be at the White Sox offices today. In the lobby they were displaying the 2005 World Series Championship Trophy, the 2005 American League Championship trophy, and one of the World Series rings that are being raffled off (https://secure.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/cws/fan_forum/forms/ring_raffle_form.jsp?loc=form). (To those curious: it's inscribed "#1 FAN" instead of the players' name.)

But, I thought that the World Series trophy was on tour (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/cws/fan_forum/trophy_tour.jsp)?

"No. It stays here."

Is it the real one?

"Yes."

The trophy has been on tour, but I think they have had it on diplay at the park for awhile. I think the tour is over.
As for the ring, the raffle winner will have his/her name inscribed on it, not "#1 fan".

I think the person who can answer this is on a "vacation" from WSI.

Based on what I've heard and read, there are two trophies. The real one stays at the Cell in the offices. The 2nd one was issued by Tiffany's, and is very close to an exact replica. I believe this is the one on tour.

Also, the rings that say #1 fan are actually CZ replicas. The raffle people walking around the park sometimes are wearing them around their neck. I got to try one on when we bought a couple more raffle tickets.

The ones that they are raffling off will actually have the winners names engraved on them.

Well, I asked when the trophy tour came to Orland. From what the guy who was responsible for the tour explained was there are two trophies issued, one that is the "players" trophy and one that is the owners trophy. The one that gets passed around after the championship is the "players" one, and that's the one that comes out on tour. I believe the owners trophy has not left the Cell since arriving.

Then again, this is just from the guy who drove the trophy there. Who really knows.

But they are STILL unbelievably cool looking. Even if the diamonds aren't real, those things are amazing in person.

Does the trophy change homes when another team becomes the defending champs?

No, it's not the Stanley Cup

No, a new trophy is produced (or rather, 2 new trophies are made) and the 2005 WS trophy is the Sox to keep forever.

Make that three. There's one outside the gift shop on 100.

That would match the number of Stanley Cups (The original bowl on display at the Hockey Hall of Fame, the actual trophy either on tour or at the HHOF and the replica they put out at the HHOF when the real one is on tour).

Maybe they moved the one from the upper deck and put it downstairs or maybe the club has three World Series trophies (not counting Hanger's replica). Sounds like some further detective work is needed.

I figure there must be at least three because when I got my picture taken with it down in Tucson during ST, there was another one on tour in Indiana someplace, and then there's the one in the front office.

I'm thinking that The Trophy defies the laws of physics and is able to be in multiple places at once.

After all, it has 88 years of making up to do.......

Well, there is that...!

BTW, has it stopped raining there yet? It's 112 here today; I can't even go swimming until after the Sox game!
