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!"

My father-in-law loved this unique gift. He is a die-hard Red Sox fan and lives in MA (frequent cold weather) so the hat will get a lot of use. He really liked the story behind how the hat is made. It was extra special since it was a 70th birthday gift!

      I gave my husband this for Christmas. After 20 years of marriage we have a one gift rule. I am always on the lookout for something different. He loved. And when we looked up the game, his team had won against the Yankees. So an unexpected plus. Well made, quality gift. Worth every penny

      Fantastic Collectible Gift

      Comments about UncommonGoods MLB Game-Used Baseball Beanie: Choose Your Team:

      I actually bought this as part of the Kickstarter program. Received it in the mail last week. This is fantastic. Inside the beanie is a tag of authenticity which allows you to look up a code and see when and who was involved with your baseball. My friend, whom I bought this for, is a huge SF Giants fan. His beanie ball was used in a game between the Angels and Giants. Angel Pagan hit the ball for a sacrifice fly and Buster Posey foul tipped.
      The construction is impeccable and it came in a sweet box.
      Over all. If you have an MLB fan in your life, this is an inexpensive way to provide a collectible.
