DESCRIPTION
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Baseball Hall of Fame the U.S. mint released, for the first time, a domed commemorative coin. This new domed technique designed by Cassie McFarland allows for a three dimensional shape of a glove and baseball to appear on a coin. The concave obverse features a baseball glove and the convex reverse features a baseball. This Silver Dollar Commemorative is composed of 90% silver and weighs 26.73 grams. This example is in superb PF70 condition with deep black mirrors for a Deep Cameo contrast. The label has been hand signed by Hall of Fame inductee Rod Carew. Rod Carew was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1991. Carew was known for his .328 career average and 3,053 hits as well as seven batting titles and 18 All- Star Game selections. Starting his career in 1964, Carew developed his unique style, a crouched stance with a smooth swing, that made him a difficult target for pitchers and resulted in ever growing batting average. In 1977, he had his best season achieving just under the .400 mark with an average of .388 with 239 hits and 128 runs scored.
