Swing And A Drink

There's more to America's favorite pastime than runs, hits, and errors: the smell of hot dogs and popcorn, the thrill of hustling to catch a homer, the perfect chill of a cold beer on a hot August afternoon…Enjoy an instant replay of the bat-on-ball crack every time you crack a cold one with these Baseball Bat Bottle Openers. Handmade from authentic game-day bats swung by MLB players, each opener comes gift-boxed with a story card including instructions for its special hologram number, indicating which game the bat was used in. Bats from the USA, hardware from China. Assembled in the USA. Colors may vary.

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

Sold individually.

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!"

I ordered this bottle opener as a gift for my son, who is a huge Red Sox fan. He absolutely loved it. He even said that when he opened the box, the smell reminded him of playing baseball when he was younger. Great, unique gift!!

This product was obviously returned becuase it was unraveled and the card inside bent. You just mailed it to me after someone else returned.

What a disappointment and embarassment for me when they opened the gift. Now I have to open the other gift too make sure that's okay.

I doubt you'll see my business again.

Comments about UncommonGoods Game Used Baseball Bat Bottle Openers:

My boyfriend has used this a couple times to open bottles of beer, but he's honestly kind of nervous about using it because it's so special, so he's talked about hanging it to display instead.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Game Used Baseball Bat Bottle Openers:

    This was such an awesome and unique gift!!! When my dad opened the box he thought it was a nice bottle opener, but then I mentioned he should look a little closer. He's a huge Yankees fan and was blown away that it was actually made from a game used bat. Once I explained we could look up who used it and the game, we immediately checked it out. We were even able to find a clip of the play where Chase Headley broke his bat! Only drawback is he thinks it's so cool, he doesn't want to use it!!

                        Bro in Law is an avid Giants fan and beer drinker. Had to order this for him. A little expensive -- but you are paying for the "cool factor" as I keep referring to. Can't wait to give this to him for Christmas
