“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2012 Triple Crown – Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Limited Edition Pin Set

With I’ll Have Another retiring yesterday, it doesn’t look like we’ll have a Triple Crown winner this year.  I guess its better for the horse in the long run.  Now he’ll get to enjoy the rest of his life getting paid $50,000.00 to stud.  Now that’s a job!  Realizing how much money there is in studding makes me think of this towel I have in my bathroom that could potentially be worth $100 million 🙂  Hey, if Sports Card Info doesn’t make it, I’ll need something to fall back on.

This pin set is one of the more in demand collectibles this year.  Selling for around $30.00, you get four pins – 138th Kentucky Derby, 137th Preakness, Belmont Stakes, and a Triple Crown commemorative pin.  The set is limited to 500.
