How many openers are made from one bat?
20. A bat typically yields about 19 openers made from the barrel and the handle section plus one very special piece which is end of the bat also called the "knob."
Bats may be from the current season but also could be from the past several seasons. Every effort is made to procure bats from the current or most recent season, however, time to acquire the bat and store it, production time and time on our shelves as a finished opener may require us to look beyond the current season.

What is the Game Used criteria for a bat?
Based on player position, a fielder who played in over 40 games or a starting pitcher who had a minimum of 8 starts or a relief pitcher who had at least 25 appearances.

MLB Bat Knob Openers
Of the 20 openers we make out of one bat, there is one that is unlike all the others: the knob. If you are gifting this to one who is unlike all the others, you might want to take a swing at this one. Comes with its own stand to hang out until pressed into service.
With just the one knob on each bat, availability is limited. Browse current inventory of knobs to see what is available from your team.
MLB Bat Authentication
MLB has the most comprehensive authentication system in pro sports. MLB stations authenticators field-side at each game to track and record bats & balls that come off the field of play, apply a hologram and enter game data into their database.
Once Tokens acquires these MLB-authenticated bats, another MLB authenticator makes weekly visits to our facility to witness its cutting and apply a hologram to the cut bat section that stays with the bat all the way through the production process. This not only verifies the bat section came from the original bat, but has a unique number that let's you search mlb.com/authentication to learn specific details of your bat opener's game history.
