“Pin-Up” of the Week: Citizens Bank Park 2016 Exclusive Star Wars Pin

Next week at this time a new Star Wars movie will be out.  Rogue One: A Star Wars Story takes place shortly before A New Hope.  It tells the tale of how the Rebellion obtained the plans to the first Death Star.  With the Jedi existing for a thousand years, it continues to fascinate me how the Sith convinced the public that they were a hoax in such a short time.  One year from now, we’ll be getting ready for Episode VIII.  How will Luke react after Rey finds him standing atop that cliff?  Star Wars movies raise lots of questions.  Every answer you get, more questions arise.

Combing baseball and Star Wars is a great idea.  Teams annually have Star Wars themed nights.  This past year, the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park sold an exclusive Phillies/Star Wars pin.  It features both Yoda and Darth Vader.  Only (300) of them were made, which isn’t a lot when it comes to pins.  I’m almost certain they’ve sold out.  On the secondary market I’ve seen people asking $30 to $50 for a single pin.

  1. Cross promotional items have always been interesting to me, how do these concepts come together?
