These earrings are crafted from an MLB Authenticated Game Used Baseball.
- Set in sterling silver, these earrings feature the unmistakable red stitching and the little scratches and scuffs that let you know they have seen game-play. Measures 7/8" in diameter and back hallmarked with their respective team name.
- Officially licensed by Major League Baseball, a tamper-evident hologram sticker is adhered to each earring to ensure authenticity. Each pair of earrings comes gift-boxed with an authentication instruction card.
The rich patina of the game can be found in the seams of game used balls, which are hologrammed and recorded at each MLB game by official MLB Authenticators. Each pair of earrings is made from balls that undergo this process.
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 earring. This new product hologram is linked to the original artifact hologram. This same process occurs with the cuff links shown right. When fans enter each earring'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.
