Padres “Free Pizza Slices” Coins (SGA??? 1980)

I’m not 100% sure what the story is on these wooden coins. Were they stadium giveaways? Were they like the Jack in the Box taco giveaway of today, where people have to look under 3 square pans to find the magic free pizza coupon thus giving the whole ballpark free pizza? Why were they Square Pan Pizza coins and not McDonalds (uhhh hello? Ray Kroc!!)? Well here’s what I do know…. if you went into a Square Pan Pizza with one of these tokens, you’d get 2 free slices of pizza (Expires 10/2/80). I have 2 of them and took a picture of the front and back of the coins. I’ve thought of every way to get me some free pizza, but with Square Pan Pizza no longer around and an expiration date that goes back about 30 years, things aren’t looking good.
