Any One Collect Pins?
 
This is something I just started collecting. I have picked up a few here and there, like a 2009 Yankee Stadium Opening Day Pin among others. I really like picking up pins and can see myself having a large collection within time.

I was wondering if there were other pin collectors here and how do do you store/display your pins? Where can i pick up supplies to keep my pins in good condition?

Also, I would love to see some pin collections, so post up some pics.

See this thread and search out his book. It is INCREDIBLE and has tons of photos. See -- Message to Dr Muchinsky -- and look for his book

Mike,

Welcome to the pin collecting hobby! Some people refer to us as " pinheads" but I have been called worse. I love pinback buttons, have written two books on them, baseball and boxing, and would be happy to discuss pins with you at any time.

Sincerely,

Paul

Welcome to the forum.
There are definitely some pin collectors on our board. I dabble in everything and here are a few...

Nice timing on this thread. Recent pickups for me:

Nice pins Rob. Do you think the 1920 pin came with a ribbon or some type of charm?

I'm not really sure. I have another version similar to this one that definitely was issued after the Indians won the 1920 Series, and that one has a very ornate ribbon. If I had to guess, I'd say this one originally had some kind of trinket attached, mainly because it's made by the same company that made the other 1920 pin I have and because it recognizes a championship season.

Kevin,

I have been chasing the Brooklyn Eagle pin of Jackie forever. I have never seen the pin board with Jackie's picture. I am posting some of my Jackie/Brooklyn pins.

I find the best way to store pins is in the box frames.

Jay
