Trying to keep with a (semi) themed series of blog entries leading up to Super Bowl XVIII, here's my very small collection of 1962 Salada Football Coins. These coins, along with hockey and baseball coins, were produced in the early 1960s. The 1962 Salada baseball coins were plastic and the 1963 Salada baseball coins were metal, as these are. The manufacturing materials seems to echo the hockey coins of that era.
More examples can be found using this ebay search. More on the Salada baseball coins later.
