The open sides of the Championship Ring tell the story in stones. Altuve, of course, won the American League MVP Award last fall.

The Houston Astros are a really big team, who needed some really big rings to commemorate their 2017 World Series title. The crown of their ring features their logo, the Houston H over an orange star, overlaying a navy blue background.

The top of the new bling features 112 diamonds, which accounts for the team's 101 regular-season wins plus its 11 postseason victories. On the lower shank of the ring is the phrase, "Earned History".

Prior to their Tuesday game against the Baltimore Orioles, the Houston Astros took care of one final piece of business left over from their World Series win last fall over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In total, the Astros will give out 1,332 rings to players, coaches, owners, staff, seasonal associates, Hall of Fame players and broadcasters.

The single diamond on top of the Commissioner's Trophy in the ring represents the franchise's first World Series title and for the State of Texas. These diamonds represent the six years Jim Crane has owned the team.
