This wallet features a unique embroidered emblem section of an MLB Authenticated Game Used Uniform. Wallet shown is the wallet shipped.
Players are given limited jerseys per season, so they try to get a lot of wear and tear out of them. Due to that game used jerseys are hard to come by and even more rare are the chest & shoulder patches on each jersey. Give an extra special gift for the sports fan who has everything by upgrading to a wallet featuring one of the emblems.
Top quality black goat leather. Team name is debossed on the front and wallet features contrast stitching in team colors.
Each Tokens & Icons billfold wallet measures 4-1/4" x 3-3/8" when closed.
Officially licensed by Major League Baseball.
Uniforms are acquired from the teams or official team partners.
Includes a tamper-evident hologram sticker to ensure authenticity. Look up hologram's unique number at MLB.com to learn details of uniform's game history.
Why is my Team not Available?
Not all teams have emblems on their uniforms. For teams that do, there may be between one and three on a uniform (two shoulder and one chest/breast emblem). We avoid using any sponsor/brand names (Nike, adidas etc.). These factors combine to make these emblem wallets of limited availability.
How many wallets are made from one uniform?
Uniform jerseys (tops) are curated for interesting shapes and symmetry from areas that feature pinstripes, chest plate, player name or number. On average 16 - 22 billfold panels or 30 - 35 money clip panels will be realized from a uniform. Shoulder patches or other commemorative marks typically become rare emblem wallets.
Most uniforms are from the past several seasons. Every effort is made to procure uniforms as close to the current season as possible but several factors inhibit this process. As seasons end, teams collect uniforms and market them to their fan base & game used collectors for a period of time. When we get our opportunity, the uniform has be transferred to us, stored until we need it, sent into production and finally placed in stock as a finished wallet.
Can I order a specific player, game or opponent?
What is the Game Used criteria for a uniform?
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. With player movement in all the leagues today a player might only spend one season with a team so consideration is given for the length of career.

MLB Uniform 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. At the end of the game, authenticators also collect & authenticate uniforms that are being cycled out for wear.
Once Tokens acquires these MLB-authenticated uniforms, another MLB authenticator makes weekly visits to our facility to witness its cutting and apply a hologram to the cut panel that stays with the uniform all the way through the production process. This not only verifies the uniform panel came from the original uniform, but has a unique number that let's you search online within MLB's database to learn specific details of the uniform's game history.
