NBA fans have a chance to collect the first-ever set of collectible medallions in the NBA Hardwood Heroes 2005 Medallion Collection.

With the NBA Playoffs tipping off this weekend, it's all about the bling: championship rings for the players and medallion's for the fans.

NBA fans have a chance to collect the first-ever set of collectible medallions in the NBA Hardwood Heroes 2005 Medallion Collection, which consists of a glossy one-of-a-kind collector’s album and 30 silver medallions featuring Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson, Tim Duncan and Tracy McGrady among others. The medallions feature a photographic image of 30 NBA stars on the front and their individual jersey numbers and respective team logo on the back.

To start this unique collection, there is a free coupon for a NBA Hardwood Heroes 2005 Medallion Collection Album in Friday's USA TODAY’s weekend edition. Then, beginning Monday and continuing for 30 consecutive publishing days, a special ‘medallion coupon’ will be printed in USA TODAY for readers to take to a participating retailer to purchase that day’s medallion, for only $2.99 plus tax.
