Game-used dirt, post-game championship champagne bottles, autographs, jerseys.
MLB’s authentication program has slapped those little code stickers on plenty of unusual things over the years and they’re not done yet.
Those little pieces of game-used memorabilia that we’re all pretty used to in the memorabilia world embedded into baseball cards and other memorabilia pieces can now be found inside high-end cufflinks at cufflinks.com.
For the collector who has everything — except a pair of fascinating cufflinks — this might be the latest item to grab one’s attention. The game-used baseball links above are made of sterling silver and run $140 a pair — unless, of course, you’re a New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox fan. Those carry an additional $10 premium charge.
Also available are stadium seat cufflinks, which have a piece of an authentic stadium chair built into the links — they’re $155 a pair for the Yankees, $230 for the Red Sox (Hey, the Sox won something in that rivalry!), $155 for the Cubs and so on.
Also to be found are logo cufflinks (without memorabilia embedded into them), tie bars and other gift sets as well.
See a slideshow of some of them after the jump.
