I don’t think we need to rehash everything that went on this week in Boston.  Its been all over the news.  Hard Rock Cafe made this pin to commemorate the 117th running of the Boston Marathon.  They only made 300 of them which isn’t a lot when it comes to pins.  Collectors can find them for $15.00 to $30.00.  Volunteers helping out during the marathon received a logo lapel pin which seems to be a bit more popular.  Then again, anything associated with this event is getting a lot of attention.  Some people have even been selling their finishing medals.  I guess capitalism never stops.
