Attendees to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London could have walked into an Apple Store and picked-up one of four different pins.  Apple gave away pins designed to look like a white iPhone, black iPhone, white iPad, and a black iPad.  Each one features the United Kingdom flag on the screen.  They are quite easy to come by and cost just a few dollars.

Speaking of the iPhone.  Have you downloaded the Sports Card Album app yet?  Its pretty much the best thing to hit the hobby since the rookie card.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2012 London Olympics Coca-Cola Lanyard Trader Pin


I’ve never been into watching the Olympics.  The sports just don’t excite me all that much.  One thing the Olympics is good for are the pins.  Each Olympics has more and more pins for collectors to find.  The rarity level of the Olympic pins range from quite common to very rare.  Some pins have been known to sell into the thousands, especially if they’re a complete set.  My favorite type of pins are the ones that deal with the actual act of pin trading.  Trading pins during the Olympics is one of the biggest things athletes and fans can do.

This pin seen above is one of a few different pins geared towards pin trading.  They seem to be selling for around $20.00.
