This bottle opener is made from an MLB Authenticated Game Used Boston Red Sox Broken Bat.

Quality nickel-plated hardware.
Laser engraved with the team name.
Handy leather loop at back for hanging out until pressed into service.
Each opener comes in an MLB gift box with an authentication instruction card.
MLB authenticated game used bat openers are 6-1/2" long not including the cord loop.
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.
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 hologram is linked to the original artifact hologram. When fans enter the bat ice cream scoops hologram into MLBs site, it reveals the date and rival team of the game in which the bat was removed from play.
The Major League Baseball Authentication Program is the most comprehensive league-wide memorabilia authentication initiative in professional sports. Since its launch in 2001, it has become the industry standard for game used sports authentication. MLB stations an authenticator at every game played throughout the season. This demonstrates a commitment to ensuring all game used artifacts are genuine. For more information, please visit Authentication.
