Can I order a specific player or game?

Over the years we have been asked to provide player names prior to an order being placed. This is not practical for several reasons. 1) These items are licensed by National Hockey League rather than the National Hockey League Players Association so we are required to emphasize team rather than player. 2) Each of the 32 teams has a 23 man roster and there are 82 games over multiple seasons, the likelihood of us having a specific player or game is basically zero. We hope you’ll place your order and have a part of your team history help open your next beverage.

What is the Game Used criteria for a player stick?

Our hockey stick collections are about team spirit rather than the player, specific game or opponent. We avoid high-cost star player's game used sticks in order to keep our items affordable. We work with regular season game used sticks used by players, current or past as there is much movement in the leagues today.

We target players with a minimum 30 games per season and average 10 minutes of time on ice per game. Note that with so much player movement, a player might only have spent one season with your team but consideration is given to the overall length of the player's career.

Tokens Bottle Openers - Design & Craft

In 2006 Tokens found an opportunity to work with sports artifacts, mainly vintage stadium seats which we turned into cuff links and pens. When we began to acquire game used baseball bats, hockey sticks, collegiate stadium seats & arena floors we were captivated with the patina, the tangible record of the game's wear and tear, right there on the equipment. A bottle opener seemed a natural way to preserve this patina and give fans a chance to appreciate and share with friends over a beer.  

We make the bottle openers in Berkeley, California. The bats, sticks etc are authenticated and then our artisans cut & shape by hand, safety any edges and finally a durable nickel plated opener hardware of our design is attached.  We leave the patina on... and we'll leave the opening to you.

Blade Beer Flights

We were perplexed about the blades, the business end of the stick that takes a ferocious beating on the ice colliding with pucks, skates, other sticks and the boards. Luckily, most players wrap tape around their blades to "soften" them and help with puck handling. We found upon removing the tape, the blade's carbon fiber was not only intact but revealed a handsome natural carbon fiber pattern. One artisan, three holes & three glasses later we have takeoff. The Blade Beer Flight.
