ADDITIONAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
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 baseball that comes out of play. Thus the details of each baseball are linked to a unique hologram number in this online database.
Balls acquired by Tokens & Icons are then hand-cut, and an MLB Authenticator affixes an additional secure hologram to each wallet and logs the information (shown right). This new product hologram is linked to the original artifact hologram. When fans enter the wallet's hologram into MLB's site, it reveals the date and rival team of the game in which the baseball 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.
