You might think that its easy to make a glasses from one of these old baseball bats, but that is not necessarily so, a lot of care has been taken to ensure that the traditional skills used in the original bat are used to make the glasses and that takes time.
Every pair goes through the same process, they are tempered by flames to add strength and bring out the grain features. with every purchase there is a special pouch and even a commemorative trading card. A pair of these cool Slugger sun glasses will set you back around $250.
