World Series TrophyIn what is becoming an annual tradition, Tiffany & Co. will salute Major League Baseball and commemorate the 2008 postseason with a window display featuring the 2008 World Series Trophy.

Tiffany & Co. will display the trophy, which will be awarded to the 2008 World Series Champions, in the windows of its Fifth Avenue flagship store. Major League Baseball first commissioned Tiffany & Co. to create the World Series championship trophy, officially named “The Commissioner’s Trophy,” in 2000.

For those that have ever wondered, here is the trophy's vital stats:

The 24-inch high trophy features 30 flags, one for each Major League Baseball team, with latitude/longitude lines symbolizing the world, and 24-karat gold vermeil stitches representing those on a baseball.

Etched on the base are the words, “Presented by the Commissioner of Baseball,” along with the signature of Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig.

WHEN: The trophy will be displayed beginning on Monday, October 13th and will continue through the lead up to the 2008 World Series

WHERE: Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue and 57th Street New York City
