1991 Vineline Fergie Jenkins Coin

 The Cubs magazine Vineline often offered a bonus for new subscribers. 

This is what you got for getting the magazine in 1991 - a Fergie Jenkins commemorative coin.  The card measures 3 3/4" x 5 3/4".  The coin is laminated to the card and I am going to leave it encased.

The Cubs celebrated his induction into Cooperstown in 1991, but didn't retire his number until 2009.  Some guy named Maddux was wearing Fergie's #31 in 1991 and I guess the Cubs didn't want to take it away from him.

  1. That Maddux fella didn't amount to much, did he? Haha.

    Great coin, nice commemorative.
