Where To Start with Pins and More

What are Sports Trading Pins

There are sports trading pins in virtually every sport you can find and similar to baseball, it has plenty of collectors too. As a matter of fact, true fans of sport allot money, time and effort in collecting game memorabilia. Believe it or not, any item you can think of, there are available collectibles for it such as autographed items, used ticket stubs and so on.

However, there’s that one item collected by virtually any baseball fans and these are pins. The popularity of these pins lead to the creation of multiple styles of it alongside various descriptive terms like sliders, danglers, blinkies, bobble heads and spinners. It can be confusing if you are not into collecting or trading sports trading pins.

Danglers are pins that have smaller pins attached to it together with jump rings so by that, the smaller pin dangles literally beneath the bigger pin. Say that you want sliders, you’ll notice easily if what you are looking is one if the bigger pin has slot or hole cut out of it and the smaller pin is fixed on the slot for it not to slide across the front side of bigger pin.

This pin is called as bobbles because the pin forms the baseball player; it is a two-part pin in which the bigger pin is representing the player’s body while the smaller pin is attached to the bigger body using a spring; hence it’s a bobble head pin.

For spinners, these are made simply by attaching small pins through hole in bigger pin and allow the smaller pin to freely spin around.

In blinkies, it does what the name suggests; it is blinking or flashing using its built-in lights. The light is actually a small LED powered using small fixed battery positioned on the back part with on and off switch. As for the flashing LED, it is used to show the location in the map of the team’s hometown or positioned in the eyes of the character.

If you want to catch light attractively or perhaps, thinking of ways on how you can highlight the team’s name, you may consider collecting baseball lapel pins. On the other hand, its translucent colors allow shiny polished metal of the pin to reflect the light. As a matter of fact, you can get to choose glow in the dark or fluorescent color on the pin.

These sports trading pins are very attractive and at the same time, budget-friendly collector’s item. You can purchase special edition collectors bag too in order to protect your pins.
