2018 Baseball Treasure MLB Coins 3-Pack Break & Review

Wow!  These bring back some memories.  During my early collecting years I remember buying packs of Pinnacle Mint baseball and football cards at my local shop called The Penalty Shot.  Everyone remembers those cards that came with coins.  I had a ton of them.  John Connor and Rick Canale of Baseball Treasure have decided to bring this idea back in what I think is a bigger and better way.

Housed inside each $6.99 pack is (1) baseball coin.  There is (1) player coin made for each MLB team.  Officially licensed by both MLB and the MLBPA.  On the “heads” side you’ll see the portrait, name, and position.  The “tails” side has a career highlight and action shot.

Baseball Treasure minted most of the coins in one-ounce of copper.  Falling about 1:432 packs are rare one-ounce silver coins.  Even rarer, 1:21,600 packs, are special coins redeemable for a one-ounce gold coin of Aaron Judge.  Just to be clear, Aaron Judge is the only player to have a gold coin.  Everyone else only has copper and silver.  It would be neat to see someone complete the Aaron Judge rainbow and own all three coins.  Here is what the redemption card looks like for the Aaron Judge one-ounce gold coin.  By the looks of it a copper coin comes attached to the redemption.  That’s a good idea otherwise the pack with the redemption card in it would feel much lighter making it easier to pick out.

I like the fact the focus is mainly on the coins.  Its also nice that the coins already come inserted within the card.  Having the collector do that can really damage the card.  I did that plenty of times with Pinnacle MintAn album to help store the coins is coming out soon.

For those wondering who all is included in this first series, here is a checklist:

  • José Altuve, Houston Astros
  • Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies
