Baseball had become an official Olympic competition when the U.S. Mint issued its first tribute to the American-born sport, for the 1992 Summer Games. The obverse's pitcher in motion bore a strong resemblance to a baseball card's depiction of Nolan Ryan, but the Mint denied any influence on the designer. The interlocked rings of the Olympic logo appear on both sides of the coin. The reverse presents the U.S. Shield flanked by olive branches. Finest-quality proof minting.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
