Flashback Product of the Week: 1997 Pinnacle Mint Football


1997 wasn’t the first year for Pinnacle Mint football, but I remember this set better than the others.  Each pack contained 1 die cut, 2 coins made of brass, nickel-silver, solid silver or solid gold plate, and 2 foil cards.  Many of the cards in the set feature an empty hole where you can place the coin.  I purchased a lot of these packs when I began collecting, and still have a bunch to this day.  Shaking a box of this stuff sounded like a treasure chest.

If the economy keeps going the way it is, we all might be forced to used these coins as currency.
