Field Goal

Thirsty scholars can hold the seats from their alma matter's football stadium in the palm of their hands while cracking open a frosty brew thanks to this one-of-a-kind bottle opener. Each opener is officially licensed by its university and engraved with the names of the school and venue as well as the time it was originally in use. Made in Berkeley, California with opener hardware from China.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"

The Perfect Gift

By 

from Chicago, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Football Collegiate Bottle Openers:

I bought this as a graduation gift for my boyfriend. He was graduating from Notre Dame too and a huge football fan so it was absolutely perfect! Bigger than I expected but will be a great addition to his apartment. I thought he was going to faint from happiness.

        My brother-in-law is an Ohio native, HUGE OSU fan, and EXTREMELY difficult to shop for Christmas.

        When he opened The Ohio State bottle opener on Christmas, all he could say was, "how and where did you get something this amazing?!" Then he hugged me and told me I just won Christmas.

        Talk about the perfect gift!
