“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2015 Williamsport Sun-Gazette Pin Collector Badge

In honor of Captain America: Civil War coming out, I think this pin is appropriate.  The Williamsport Sun-Gazette made this pin for the 2015 Little League World Series.  Each year they come out with a whole slew of pins you can buy.  The Sun-Gazette booth that was setup at Little League last year wasn’t selling this particular pin though.  I think you could only get this one at their downtown location.  As you can easily tell, the pin is designed to look a lot like Captain America’s shield.  I own a bunch of Sun-Gazette pins, but not this one.  The only time I’ve seen one on eBay was in a lot.  By the time I saw it the auction had ended.  Despite not being seen much, I doubt its very rare.  The lot that had this pin in it sold for a couple dollars.

I find it cool when superheroes and sports stuff are combined.  Its becoming more popular.  This weekend the San Francisco Giants are giving away Captain America bobbleheads.  Instead of being the classic red, white, and blue, the color scheme is white, orange, and black.  I really hope this trend continues.
