I'm going to pass as well but I'm doing so because the selected designs are terrible, not because we're commemorating a sport.

I'm comfortable saying basketball is more popular in this country than is numismatics.

I also have no problem with the fact that it's a sport, the major sports including auto racing and horse racing are a big part of the country and many of them aside from football are very popular in the world as well. There's nothing wrong with commemorating them, they just should actually be nice to look at

Looks like colorized half dollars and dollars are coming with this program:

Quote:
For 2020, introduction of the three-coin Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Coin Program is not yet scheduled, as research continues at the Philadelphia Mint on how to colorize the silver dollar and copper-nickel clad half dollar. The program also will offer a gold $5 coin that will not be colorized.

Mint officials have not disclosed how they plan to implement the colorization, whether through adjustments in the metallic composition to meet the designated color, or by a surface application, or with some other technique. Officials also have not disclosed what color or colors are planned to be used and whether the same color or colors will be used on both the dollar and half dollar.

The Mint is not planning to begin production until sometime in February at the earliest.

Baltimore Spring Expo is March 19 - 21.

The Basketball HoF products will be available for sale on April 4, 2020, at 12 noon (ET).

So, no they won't be available at the Spring Expo.

Baltimore Summer Expo is June 18-20.

They should be available at the Summer Expo (unless they've sold out, which IMHO is doubtful).

Afraid not. The booth personnel adhere strictly to the release date.
