The 2014 Winter Olympics are in full swing over in Sochi, Russia.  Norway currently holds the most medals with six.  Whenever the Olympics come around, pin collectors are in heaven.  Pin trading is huge when it comes to the Olympics.  Its even bigger than the Little League World Series.  They pretty much have a pin for everything.

Media outlets from all over the world are represented at the Olympics.  In America, NBC has the most coverage.  Over in Tokyo, Japan they have Nippon TV.  Nippon TV has been around for 60 years.  They were the first to air a TV commercial and broadcast in color.  Nippon TV has a rich history in shaping Japanese television much like ABC, NBC, and CBS do here in America.

If you’re attending the Winter Olympics right now, consider yourself lucky if you can get your hands on one of these Nippon TV media pins.  One recently sold for $90.00.
