Interesting Notes[edit]

  • Minneapolis/St.Paul mug 1994 edition sold on eBay for $2,020.00
  • North Island mug 2008 Global Icon Series sold on eBay for about $6,000.00
  • The original release Colorado architect mug erroneously listed the elevation of Mt. Elbert (one of Colorado's 14k ft. peaks) as 1,441 feet. This was later corrected but you will occasionally run across one of the rare originals with the error.
