The Highland Mint is regarded as one of the leaders in producing high quality sports memorabilia and once again, they have produced another masterpiece with The Baseball Hall of Fame Coin Card Collection.
The front of each card features a photo of a baseball Hall of Fame member, while the back of the card features the players bust that is located at the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum in Cooperstown, NY. What really makes these Hall of Fame collectibles really unique is the commemorative solid bronze coin that is embedded into the card. The front of the coin features the player's photo, while the back of the coin features the National Baseball Hall of Fame Museum logo. The entire piece is encased in a protective 4x6 acrylic case.
Each coin card is a Limited Edition and the number of coins minted was determined by the player's HOF induction year. For instance, NY Yankees legendary catcher, Yogi Berra, was elected to the HOF in 1972, therefore Yogi's coin cards are limited to only 1,972. Minnesota Twin slugger, Harmon Killebrew was elected in 1984, therefore his coin cards are limited to only 1,984.
This collection was introduced on June 20, 2011. Here are some of the players that are available.
