“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.

Lil’ Teammates Introduces Throwback Uniforms

The creative minds over at Lil’ Teammates have started to make throwback uniforms for their football players.  They’ve started with the Steelers and Patriots.  Soon they hope to move into other teams.

I love these little guys.  They beat McFarlane figures any day in my book 🙂

PHOTOS: Lancaster Barnstormers vs. Somerset Patriots

Last night I took a drive down to Lancaster to see the Barnstormers take on the Somerset Patriots.  As you can see, Lancaster lost 3-2.  Clipper Magazine Stadium has to have the best food out of any stadium I’ve been to this summer.  I picked up a 2010 Team Set,’09 Update Set, and of coarse a new pin for my collection.  The first 1,500 fans 16 and older received a James Buchanan bobblehead.  Buchanan is the only Pennsylvania-born President and lived in Lancaster.
