“Pin-Up” of the Week: World Of Disney 2008 New York City Marathon Pin


Well it looks as if the 2012 New York City Marathon has been cancelled.  I wonder if they had any pins made up for this year’s race yet?  I think they made the right decision to cancel it.  Sandy just hit at the wrong time and its almost impossible to predict the amount of damage that was going to take place in order to cancel the race in time.

This pin was by Disney for the 2008 NYC Marathon and is limited to 500 copies.  It can easily be found for $10.00.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: The Dark Knight Rises New York City Premiere Pin


The Dark Knight Rises is out, and it’s blowing away fans.  I’m looking forward to seeing it first thing tomorrow morning.  I’ve been staying clear of all the entertainment sites so I don’t ruin any surprises.  Not only am I looking forward to seeing this film, but the trailers that come before it.  I hear there is a Man Of Steel trailer before the movie starts.  That I deeply want to see.  Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is by far the best interpretation the world’s greatest detective.

This pin was given to those individuals that were lucky enough to attend the New York City premiere of The Dark Knight Rises on July 16th.

Card of the Day: Trevor Rosenthal 2010 Grandstand Johnson City Cardinals


“Pin-Up” of the Week: Baltimore Ravens City Pin


Last weekend when I was in Baltimore, I picked this pin up at one of the gift shops.  I like these team pins that show parts of the city they are from.  You can look at them and say “I was there.”

2011 Tri City Sports PL Diamond Cuts Baseball – Series 1 Box Break & Review

Yesterday in the mail I received a package from Tri City Sports PL.  Inside was a box of their new 2011 Diamond Cuts Baseball – Series 1 product.  I’m always open to trying new products, so I thought I would give it a shot.  It has a nice selection of baseball players from the past, and celebrities.  Check out what I pulled:



Thats right.  I pulled a Jeff Foxworthy “Silver Screen Cut” –  Cut Signature serial numbered 1/1.  I would like to know who the third party authenticator is, but when I compared this signature to one certified by PSA/DNA it looks extremely similar.  There are a lot of cut signature products on the market.  Most of them come from Razor and Leaf.  Tri City Sports PL started in 2008, and if you like cut signature brands you should give it a try.  It is a very limited product.  Only 30 cases were produced.  Each case contains 14 boxes.  Boxes can be found on eBay for around $20.00 to $40.00.


According to Tri City Sports PL, all cut signatures are certified by JSA, PSA, Steiner, or Upper Deck.

The 2010 NFL Draft Puzzle Pin

The 2010 NFL Draft has come to a close, but it’s collectibles are just starting to surface.  As a large collector of sports pins, I was looking to see if I could find the same pin the announcers were wearing on ESPN.  So far, I haven’t had much luck.  Instead, I’ve stumbled upon the pins below that were given out to people that attended the Draft.  Each day of the Draft, a new pin was given out to 4,000 people.  When all the pins are put together they form Radio City Music Hall.

Pins are highly collectible within the sports memorabilia market.  I’d love to see a manufacturer insert pins into cards somehow.  Especially ones from specific events like the NFL Draft, Super Bowl, and the World Series.
