Today's entry in Cardboard Junkie's Twelve Days of Cardmas jogged my memory of Pinnacle Mint Coins/Cards. I actually thought this was a pretty nifty ideal, and I recall buying plenty of the Football product. I don't recall getting ANYTHING good out of it though, maybe a Barry Sanders regular card, but I do recall the packs being pretty expensive.
Anyway, I won't go into the details here since Thing Done to Cards already did a nice entry on this series. I will say this though, if there WERE any Angels in the set, which I'm not at all sure there were, I'd love to trade for them. I know there's a Vlad Guerrero, but he's on the Expos.
Today's post was created because I hadn't updated in a week...sigh.
