1969 CITGO Coins
In 1969, to commemorate Baseball's 100th Anniversary, CITGO released their
"Famous Baseball Player Coin Collection" of 20 brass coated metal coins.
On the front, the coins featured the player's name and a raised image of
his head. The back displayed a banner honoring baseball's s 100th Anniversary.
The coins are approx. 1" in diameter and are very susceptible to
tarnishing due to oxidation.
Customers received a single coin in it's sealed pack free with a fill-up and
could pay 25 cents for additional coins.
The 20 coin set could be inserted into a cardboard backing for display.
On the back of the display was a short bio with stats of each player.

cardboard backing and some more sample coins:

Baseball, Football, Basketball & Hockey Memorabilia Cards
It's cool to have a card of your favorite player.
It's even cooler to have your favorite player's jersey or bat.
Well just think how cool it is to have a card of your favorite player
embedded with a piece of his bat or jersey that he used in a real major league game !!!
That's the concept that Upper Deck dazzled the hobby with in 1996. Ever since the
hobby has been in love with Game-Used memorabilia cards and they have become a
staple of sportscard collecting. Originally they were very scarce inserts with
less than 1 every few boxes. Now these insert cards are so popular that
many products include one in every pack.
