Named in tribute for the old Downtown Park in St. Paul, Minnesota, that was referred to as “the Pillbox,” Pillbox Bat. Co is making bats that are as functional as they are stylish. Each 34″ bat is Made in the USA from the same solid Maple that the pros use and then hand-painted in Winona, Minnesota, in one of six styles before getting a durable varnish finish. The Three Strikes Bat is available in black/white/yellow or black/gold and is emblazoned with three X’s for all the pitchers out there. Old Glory is decked out in stars and stripes. Pinstripes is fittingly named and decorated like the pinstripes that have adorned baseball uniforms for over a century. Home of the Brave is an homage to the Bald Eagle. Join or Die is wood-burned with the segmented snake introduced by Benjamin Franklin. While each bat is perfectly suited for hanging above the mantle, they’re also well made enough to actually use to hit a ball.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
