Tokens & Icons has been turning authentic, nostalgic artifacts into functional gifts for more than 20 years. The company was founded upon becoming one of the first licensees of the New York City MTA with whom we continue to create cuff links that feature the iconic retired NY Subway tokens. From authentic vintage typewriter keys to a Pan Am fuselage to Buffalo Nickels to watch movements from the early 20th century, Tokens & Icons aims to bring a new life and purpose to the memorable everyday objects of our past.
In 2006 we became involved with – and later acquired – BallPark Pens, and thus entered the world of sports. Three years later we became a Major League Baseball (MLB) licensee as a maker of gifts made from Authenticated Game Used baseballs, uniforms, and broken bats. We worked closely with MLB’s Authentication program and the public hologram lookup capability that adds the "wow" dimension to our baseball gifts. Since then, we have partnered with the National Hockey League, the PGA TOUR, NFL and a growing list of top-ranked collegiate football and basketball programs. To ensure that each fan’s purchase is 100% authentic, we work directly with our licensors to obtain and document the chain of custody of each jersey, ball and helmet.
Tokens continues to identify cycled-out materials that have played an emotional role in our lives over time. Our goal is to design a way to keep the materials in circulation and be a functional gift that brings a smile to those gifted.
Our cuff link swivel clasp is from Providence, RI and are combined with artifacts and bezel set in Taxco, Mexico, the silver capital of the world. All bottle openers are handcrafted and engraved locally in Berkeley, CA. Our leather wallets are individually stitched in Mumbai, India; These artisans, whether they are two blocks or a video chat away, are in constant collaboration with Tokens & Icons’ staff headquarters in Berkeley, CA. As a team, we work to bring authenticity, craftsmanship and functionality to the gifting experience.
