“Pin-Up” of the Week: New England Patriots Super Bowl XLII Champions Perfect Season “Phantom” Pin

Photobucket

This is what collectors refer to as a “phantom” pin. ¬†According to this pin, the Patriots won Super Bowl XLII and had a perfect 19-0 season. ¬†I think we all can agree this didn’t happen because the Patriots lost to the Giants. ¬†Pin manufacturers make these things up ahead of time so they can strike while the iron is hot. ¬†Somehow pins like this find their way out onto the secondary market, even though they were most likely suppose to be destroyed. ¬†Collectors love stuff like this and these pins can command some insane prices. ¬†The above pin has a Buy It Now price of $999.19.

I have a few “phantom” pins in my personal collection. ¬†I have a Tampa Bay Rays 2008 World Champions pin and a 2009 Phillies World Champions pin. ¬†Both of which I purchased from The Pin Man.
