2007 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 1982 Commemorative Medallion

Manufacturer: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Set: Milwaukee Brewers 1982 American League Champions Medallion Collection
Year:  2007
Card Number: NNO
Card Type: Medallion/Coin

Here is a great oddball I picked up a few years ago.  These medallions commemorate the 1982 Milwaukee Brewers American League Championship.  The set consisted of 23 medallions.  You had to buy a paper, clip the coupon, find a store that still had these in stock, and hand over $2.99. Coupons were put in papers from April 23, 2007 through May 18, 2007. There was also an album you could put all your medallions in. I'm not sure if the albums were inserted in the papers or were available where the Medallions where sold.  This set had all the big names and some names you probably didn't know unless you're a Brewers fan.  Rollie Fingers, Paul Molitor, Cecil Cooper, and more all had coins.

I'm not sure what day Robin's medallion coupon came in the paper.  A really cool oddball commemorating the best team and season the Brewers ever put together.
