Originally, the trophy presentation took place in the clubhouse. In 1997 (Florida Marlins), the presentation was held on the field for the first time. Currently, home teams have a ceremony on the field, while visiting teams receive the trophy in the clubhouse.
MLB first commissioned Tiffany & Co. to create the World Series trophy in 2000.
It takes Tiffany & Co. master artisans more than three months and more than 200 troy ounces of sterling silver to create the trophy that stands 24-inches high (not including the base) with a diameter of 11 inches. It weighs about 30 pounds.
The trophy features 30 flags, one representing each Major League team, with latitude/longitude lines symbolizing the world and 24-karat vermeil stitches representing those on a baseball. Engraved on the base are the words: "Presented by the Commissioner of Baseball" along with the signature of Baseball Commissioner Allan G. (Bud) Selig.
