“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2015 Daytona 500 Official Event Pin

The Super Bowl of NASCAR took place on Sunday, and Joey Logano came out the winner.  Out of all the merchandise that was for sale, the official pin was one of the top items to buy.  I gotta say that the creativity level of the pins this year really took a nose dive.  There are at least three different types of 2015 Daytona 500 logo pins that they made.  All of them look extremely similar to each other.  Take a look.

The pin pictured all the way at the top of this post is the official pin.  Don’t let the others fool you.  That “57” on the bottom pin doesn’t even look right.  The 7 looks like a J.  The main difference between them all is that the word “DAYTONA” on the official pin is raised up, and on a level of it’s own.  On the others it is flat.  Prices aren’t all that high.  The official pin has been selling for $15.00 – $25.00.

Still no word yet on who will be producing the next generation of NASCAR cards.  Its only a matter of time until Panini announces a deal with NASCAR though.  Panini looks to be the only manufacturer with enough money to take on NASCAR.  Plus one of their head guys, D.J. Kazmierczak, use to run Press Pass.  I personally would like to see Upper Deck get back into making NASCAR stuff.

Flashback Product of the Week: 1988 Topps/Sports Shots Folders

This is one of those products that only crazed player collectors go after.  But just imagine how cool you would’ve looked walking around school with a 2-pocket folder that resembled a giant baseball card.  Watch out ladies!

In the late 80’s and early 90’s, Sports Shots teamed-up with Topps to bring collectors various school related items that looked like baseball cards.  These folders were one of them.  Not a whole lot can be said about these things.  They made folders for 1988, 1989, and 1990 Topps cards.  Just like the actual cards from that time, these hold very little value today.  Lots and boxes can sell for $10.00 to $20.00.  But the demand isn’t really there.
