1978 New York Cosmos NASL Football MLS Soccer Bowl Championship Replica Fan Ring. Fabulous creation celebrates the New York Cosmos’ exciting finish to the 1978 North American Soccer League pro football season. A silver-plate soccer ball design with a cubic zirconia center floats at the top the New York Cosmos logo on one side and the image of the championship trophy and Giants Stadium on the opposite side. The craftsmanship is superb and the ring displays sharp and intricate detailing. This ring is crafted in sturdy brass and plated in polished 18K yellow gold. Although soccer great Pele retired at the end of the previous year, he stayed on with the team as a member of the promotional staff and was presented a ring when they won the Championship. Available in size 10, 11, 12 and 13. In new, unworn condition. The 1978 New York Cosmos season was the 8th season for the New York Cosmos in the now-defunct North American Soccer League. The double-winning club set records for most wins and points in an NASL season, thanks to their 24-6 regular-season mark (shared with the Vancouver Whitecaps) and 212 points, securing their second premiership on the way to their third championship. New York beat the Fort Lauderdale Strikers 7-0 on opening day. And never looked back, scoring 88 times while losing just three games in regulation. Giorgio Chinaglia scored 34 goals and 79 points, setting league records in the process. In Soccer Bowl’78, the Cosmos defeated the Tampa Bay Rowdies in front of 74,901 fans at Giants Stadium, still to this day a record for attendance at a North American championship soccer game.
