You would’ve thought the Football Hall of Fame had issued specially made pins for high profile guests long before 1995.  But that isn’t the case.  The HOF began giving out pins to specific guests like the media in ’95.  These lucky people were presented with a small box that contained two lapel pins.  One pin would feature the names of the Hall of Famers who were being inducted that year.  The other pin had a retro theme containing the names of past inductees.  1995 was paired with 1963, 1996 was paired with 1964, etc…  The first pins given out in 1995 aren’t serial numbered, but the ones afterward are.  Quantities range into the high hundreds.  Prices can be between $50.00 to $100.00 per set.  They are all made by Balfour.
