hype… hype…. hype
I wonder how many you ordered, JOE #2…
I love baseball, and love coin collecting so don’t really care that much about the “investment” part of it. Do you think there will be more curved designs? Hard to pick a better idea than a baseball – baseball glove combo.
Eddie… I was a Yankee and Met fan for years. I love baseball like anyone else. I have been in the coin collecting business since the early 70/s. It’s a mockery what’s happening today with coin collecting with these outrageous coin prices charging approx: $1,000 for a 1/4 ounce piece of gold.

Hey Joe, I use to think that .999 gold was free from copper spots till they started showing up on my sealed gold pandas and 1/10oz proof buffalo.
I never had any issues on my .9999 gold buffalo’s. I have heard issues on the .999 gold pandas. I have seen also 1 gold proof buffalo with the reddish orange spots.
