Tino Tuesday #64: 1998 Pinnacle Mint + coin

Kerry from Cards on Cards sent me this awesome card/coin combo. It was an interesting way for Pinnacle to try and break through the clutter (or add to it) back in '98. I love having this card in my collection, but I'm glad the card/coin thing didn't take off. I have so many piles of cards I can't find a place for, adding coins to that would just get messy.

These coins were nicely done. They had a decent amount of detail. I think Pinnacle did an ok job incorporating the coin area into the card, and at least you still get a good sized photo. The problem is that when there is no coin, the cards look very awkward.

Did you guys enjoy this set when it came out?

  1. I have that same card in my Tino PC as well as the card without the coin. Never understood if the card was missing the coin or if it was just released like that. I have a Martin Brodeur card that is similar.
