Pittsburgh Pirates Game Used Bat Knob Bottle Opener with Stand
- This bottle opener is made from the knob of an MLB Authenticated Game Used Pittsburgh Pirates Broken Bat.
- A bat yields about 19 regular openers and 1 very special knob. Each knob bottle opener ships with its own handcrafted cherry wood/frosted plexi bat rack that goes on the bar.
- Wood features scratches and scuffs of game play.
- Quality nickel-plated hardware. Measures 6-1/2" (7-1/2" high on stand) and is engraved with team name. Color, markings, shape and wear vary depending on the bats sourced.
- Officially licensed by Major League Baseball, each bottle opener includes a tamper-evident hologram sticker to ensure authenticity and comes in a kraft box with an authentication instruction card. Note: gift ribbon not available for this style.
This style gives new meaning to the term "Home Opener."
Additional Product Information
Each MLB artifact is authenticated under the auspices of the MLB Authentication Program and carries a uniquely numbered hologram that allows fans to verify their item at MLB.com/authentication. MLB Authenticators witness, log, and adhere holograms to each bat that breaks and comes out of play. Thus the details of each bat are linked to a unique hologram number in this online database. For more information, please visit Authentication.
Bats acquired by Tokens & Icons are then hand-cut, shaped and engraved and an MLB Authenticator affixes an additional secure hologram to each piece of bat (shown right). This new product hologram is linked to the original artifact hologram. When fans enter the bat bottle opener's hologram into MLB's site, it reveals the date and rival team of the game in which the bat was removed from play.FAQ: Can I order a specific player, game or opponent?
This collection is about team spirit rather than the player, specific game or opponent. We avoid high-cost star player's game used bats in order to keep our items affordable. We seek regular season game used bats used by players (current or traded as there is much movement in the leagues today) that ought to be recognizable by the average fan as having played for the team. Over the years we have been asked to provide player names prior to an order being placed. This is not practical for several reasons. 1) These items are licensed by Major League Baseball rather than the Major League Baseball Players Association so we are required to emphasize team rather than player. 2) With 30 teams, each with a 40 man roster, plus 162 games over multiple seasons, the likelihood of us having a specific player, game or opponent is basically zero. By placing your order, you understand you can enjoy a cold one with spirit - team spirit.
