When were Magic: the Gathering tokens first released?


Tokens were officially introduced as a free giveaway with The Duelist magazine in November 1994 to coincide with the release of Fallen Empires. The first set that contained many cards capable of producing tokens and counters.

But, it wasn't until un-set Unglued in October 1998 that the MTG sized card tokens we know today where officially released. Since then, token cards have been regularly inserted in boosters and given out as rewards or promotions.
