What customers are saying:
If I could give 10 stars, I would. This seller went above and beyond. I only inquired about a discounted price for a second keychain. One for the birthday boy and one for his mother. I gave him a little bit of information about a wonderful family who has lost one of their young boys. What he came up with to honor this boys memory while also celebrating the birthday boy their mother and the older brother was simply amazing. I cried when I opened the package. This seller is kind, prompt in service, and overall fabulous. It’s moments like this where one believes in humanity. Thank you thank you a thousand times over.
I ordered this at the VERY last minute (one for both of my sons) and I requested personalization The seller was SUPER accommodating and prompt when responding to my messages. Although I was nervous and doubted they would arrive in time, they arrived just in the nick of time-on Christmas Eve!!! Both of my sons absolutely loved this gift. I dubbed this as a stocking stuffer gift, but the craftsmanship and quality of this item clearly classified the gift as a real Christmas gift. One that could take center stage. Which it did! Everyone admired the quality and “personal” touch that accompanies this item. I highly recommend for anyone who loves the sport as much as my two!
Sharing the Light of Chanukah Through Baseball
A light went off for Gregg Garfinkle and he thought, a menorah has nine arms. Eight for the candles and one for the Shamash. A baseball game has nine innings. There needs to be a menorah made out of baseballs!
Garfinkel, through his company Baseballidays, creates personalized gifts made from baseballs including menorahs, rose bouquets, flags and keychains.

Baseballidays Partners with Negro League Baseball Museum
I’m excited to announce my participation in a special partnership between the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) and the #arts & #smallbusiness community.
In the words of @nlbmprez Bob Kendrick, “We are overwhelmed by the tremendous show of solidarity from the artist community, who are sharing their amazing talent in this unprecedented salute to the Negro Leagues and in support of the @nlbmuseumkc.”

My Most memorable commission to date
Just completed one of my most memorable commissions to date. I was asked by Rob Rosen, who is the son of Al Rosen - the 1953 MVP Award winning third-baseman for the Cleveland Indians - to create two menorahs out of commemorative bats issued in his name. I am ecstatic at how they came out. More importantly, so is Rob and his family. Tried a new "floating bat" installation, which worked great. It was an honor working with Rob on such important pieces for his all-star family.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR PASSION INTO A BUSINESS WITH GREGG GARFINKEL
Baseballidays’ fearless leader and creator, Gregg S. Garfinkel, was recently interviewed by Wade Thomas regarding his creations and the inspiration for his craft. Take a listen here (after you are done with Tiger King):
Are you a true fan ?
From a happy customer
The glaringly bare walls of my courtroom have mocked me for the last two years. I took down the awful institutional art on day one but never replaced it and it was bothering me. Enter my good friend Gregg K. Garfinkel to the rescue. Gregg is a true Renaissance Man. A galactically respected attorney and a world class fisherman (although he says his boys are better). But for the last few years Gregg has developed talent as an artist. His medium...baseball gear!! Old bats, balls, gloves...you name it. My favorites are the flags he does. Mainly US flags using hand painted bats, balls and other items. In March I hung the first one...distressed stars and stripes on repurposed wood. Check it out. Today I hung one to make my Chicago peeps green with envy. I give you the Red, White and Tiffany Blue of the City of Chicago flag. “It might be, it could be...it is!!! A HOME RUN!
For the fan that stays for the last pitch !
If getting to the game in the second inning is "okay" with you, then move along. This site is for true fans only - the type of fan that arrives in time for batting practice and doesn't leave until the fat lady sings. The fan whose love of the game shows on his sleeve and on her front door. The fan that is authentic, like the goods we sell at Baseballidays.
Although made in Los Angeles, there is no plastic here - only products which are handmade out of 100 % professional leather baseballs (unless you want something made out of Johnny or Johanna's first dinger). So, if you are true fan who demands products made out of the heart of the hide, take a look. Thanks for stopping by.
