Tokens & Icons was founded on authenticity in 1991 when Ward Wallau was approved for a license with the New York City Transit Authority. This occurred eleven years after he first approached them in 1980 with the idea of producing cuff links from the "Y" cut subway tokens.
The first collection, the New York Subway Token Cuff Links, has since grown to include licensed products featuring the authentic transit tokens of Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco. After this, Tokens worked with a wide array of lifestyle artifacts: Scrabble tiles, vintage typewriter keys, watch movements and old coins.
In 2006, Tokens began delving into sports by producing cuff links & pens from the wooden seats of vintage Ball Parks like Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium. This resulted in a license with Major League Baseball in 2009 and to the development of a very special collection of cuff links, wallets & bottle openers made from Authenticated Game Used Baseballs, Bats, Jerseys, etc. of all 30 teams.
Nowadays, Tokens has grown to have licenses with NFL, NHL, Collegiate, PGA, Churchill Downs and enjoys creating a wide variety of unique upscale game used gifts for the man (who thought) he had everything.
