You can buy a Hall of Famer's 1987 Twins World Series ring

Steve Carlton is one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history.

Carlton won four Cy Young Awards, struck out 4,136 batters – the fourth most all-time – and he was a Hall of Fame inductee in 1994. Seven years earlier his brilliance on the mound was fading and he found himself being traded from the Cleveland Indians to the Minnesota Twins for a player to be named later, according to Baseball Reference.

Carlton, 42 at the time, had a dismal season, going 1-5 with a 6.70 ERA, and was left off the postseason roster, according to Hardball Talk. But even though he didn't contribute to the Twins seven-game World Series win over the St. Louis Cardinals, he was still awarded a World Series ring – and it could be yours.

The ring is being sold in April through SCP Auctions. You can see it right here. Bidding begins April 8.

The Star Tribune reports that it's unclear if Carlton or someone else is selling the ring.

Last February, a 1987 World Series ring belonging to a member of the Twins' front office was sold at a Pawn America. That ring, likely the same as Carlton's, had 15 small diamonds in the shape of the Twins “M” logo and was made up of about an ounce of gold.
