Joc Pederson’s iconic pearl necklace he wore during the Atlanta Braves‘ World Series title run has found a new temporary home.

The Braves outfielder loaned the necklace to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and will be on display, beginning Thursday.

Pederson, who slugged two pinch-hit home runs in the National League Division Series against the Milwaukee Brewers and added another in the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, turned a fashion statement into a rally symbol for Braves fans throughout the postseason.

“I just saw the pearls and I was like, you know what? That looks cool,” Pederson said. “I’ve done the black chain and the gold chain and all those different ones and — I think a lot of other players have. But I don’t know, kind of caught my eye. I was like, you know, those look good.”

Pederson isn’t the only one who donated a piece of memorabilia from the postseason to the Hall of Fame. Here are a few additional artifacts (courtesy of the Hall of Fame):

  • Spikes worn by Braves Game 6 starter Max Fried, who pitched six shutout innings to earn the victory

  • Batting helmet worn by World Series MVP Jorge Soler

  • Bat used by Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman in Game 6 when he doubled and homered

  • Glove used by NLCS MVP Eddie Rosario

  • Spikes worn in Game 6 by Braves reliever Will Smith, who did not allow a run in 11 Postseason appearances

  • Cap worn in Game 6 by Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson

  • Jersey worn in Games 1 and 2 by Braves manager Brian Snitker

  • Cap worn by Astros manager Dusty Baker during a regular season in which he led a record fifth different team to the Postseason

  • Batting helmet worn by ALCS MVP Yordan Álvarez during the Postseason
