bore a strong resemblance to
a baseball card’s depiction of
Nolan Ryan, but the Mint denied
any influence. The reverse combines
the Olympic rings with the
stars and stripes. Sales helped
raise funds for an Olympic training
facility. Over two-and-a-half
times as many proof issues were
produced making this Brilliant
Uncirculated type a tougher find..
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
