Officially licensed by MLB.
Through Tokens’ relationships with the teams, MLB authenticated game used balls are acquired and transferred to our California studio. The leather outers are carefully separated from the yarn cores, all in the presence of an MLB authenticator to maintain the chain of custody that follows each ball through finished product. The outers go into production as watches, money clips, cuff links & pendants.
The MLB authenticator also witnesses each baseball's wool core being unspooled. Each section of unwound yarn receives its own hologram designation for tracking the yarn through the braiding process.
Once braided, a master hologram sticker ensures authenticity. Look up hologram number at MLB.com to learn further details of ball's game history.
