I wonder how close a person could come to a complete year set of Masonic counterstamped Lincolns?
How much squash could a Sasquatch squash if a Sasquatch would squash squash?

I've thought that. Not sure I'd want to pull that 'thread'.

But seriously, it'd be really challenging through the first half of the 20th century. They are hard to come by. Unless they had a new stamp on an old coin which are pretty easy to spot.

Mickey Mantle Hall of Famer counter stamp. . .

The person who makes (or has made) these stamps has started a Baseball HOF series. I know the first one was Roberto Clemente.

Spurred a good memory!

I took a field trip with my students to 3 River Stadium many years ago. My rifle, fishing pole, and the outdoors always totally eclipsed any personal desire to be interested (OK...bothered) with even the smallest fact concerning any professional sports. However, I was very impressed with the statue of Roberto Clemente.

One of the coolest things I remember is the base of the statue, a baseball diamond, has 3 glass blocks (one at each base) underneath of which, respectively, is dirt from his home of Puerto Rico, Forbes Field, and 3 Rivers.

Unusual to see the CS in the left side field

Could be a sub-category to collect.
