Drinking Goes Into Overtime

Own a piece of sports history with bottle openers made from famous arena floors. For basketball fans, these wooden openers are handmade from the Madison Square Garden floor used from 1970-1973 and green painted sections of the iconic parquet floor of Boston Garden used from 1946-1999.

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!"

Even better looking in person!

I bought this for my boyfriend for the holidays and was beyond happy with it after taking a peak and opening the box. It's much larger and better looking than I anticipated and the white yarn at the end was actually gold which made it look a lot nicer. I can't imagine any sports fan would use this, as it seems like a great piece to just display.

Very nice presentation piece

5

The only improvement that I thought they could have made was they should use actually netting from a basketball hoop for the loop at the back. The wood is a nice piece which made an impression due to the size as well. Overall a very nice gift for a Boston Celtics fan.

Very, very cool gift.

This honestly is a wonderful item and my husband loves it. The ONLY thing that stops it from being perfect is the cheesy rope they have on it. Considering the quality and uniqueness of every other part of it the "rope" should be leather or rawhide, something better than what it currently is. But honestly, this is great.

Great gift for a NYR fan! Feels really sturdy and heavier than i expected. Love that the plexiglass is scratched up from use and probably a hit or two along the boards!
