Production starts with a ball coming off the field of play. MLB stations authenticators field-side at each game to track and record balls and enter the into the database. After the balls are transferred to Tokens, an MLB authenticator makes weekly visits to our facility to witness the laser cutting and preparation of the ball discs that will become the dials for the watch. Once overseas, the discs are encased under a mineral crystal, the back is engraved and the watch is completed. On the face is a custom MLB hologram that ensures authenticity, the number can be searched at MLB.com to learn specific details of the ball's game history.

The MLB Authentication Program was launched in 2001 so that memorabilia purchasers could have a comfort level that authenticated materials are in fact 100% genuine and can be referenced in an online database. It was the late 90's when Tony Gwynn happened to walk into the San Diego Padres team store and noticed fake signatures of his on items for sale.
The incident led to an FBI investigation which resulted in MLB hiring Authenticators from law enforcement in every city Major League teams play. These individuals are field-side at every game and witness balls going into the dirt, bats breaking, etc. They immediately receive a tamper-proof hologram produced by OpSec, U.S.
These same Authenticators visit Tokens facility to track and witness the game used materials going through production and place the final hologram on the finished item. This is your assurance that your purchase was made from genuine MLB game used artifacts.
