Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve recently added more World Series sparkle to his life thanks to a famous artist who calls himself “Mr. Bling.”

The artist fashioned a one-of-a-kind Swarovski crystal encrusted bat commemorating the Astros’ 2017 championship win for the iconic Astros all-star. Altuve showed off the glitzy gift on Instagram.
