Collection: A Mike Scioscia Sports Stars Collectors Coin

Adding to the my recent bounty, I also received the featured coin in the lot of Dodger memorabilia that I recently purchased on eBay.  This item was included with the Don Drysdale Club 53 mug, Jackie Robinson comic and Mondesi figurine that I recently wrote about.

I've never pursued an item like this for my own collection.  I guess I'm just not much of a coin collector.  Nevertheless, it's a nice little item that will find a good home in one of my binders.

It is about the size of a half-dollar and is from a 1992 set called Sports Stars Collector Coins that was produced by a San Juan Capistrano, CA company called Diamond Promotion.  There are 50 coins in the set, and 5 Dodgers are represented.  The other Dodgers are Orel Hershiser, Ramon Martinez, Eddie Murray and Darryl Strawberry.  I won't be actively seeking out the rest of the set, but if I stumble across one I wouldn't be disappointed.  Check out a complete checklist here.

BTW, these coins are fairly inexpensive.  They should only cost a few dollars a piece.
