Pin Highlight: 1998 Little League World Series Honda Sponsor Pin

Taking place between August 23-29 was the 1998 Little League World Series in South Williamsport, PA. Toms River, NJ took Kashima, Ibaraki, Japan to the cleaners winning the championship game. Future MLB All-Star and Home Run Derby champion Todd Frazier was on the Toms River team. He went 4-4 with a lead-off home run, and was also the winning pitcher.

Pins have always been a huge part of the Little League World Series. Even when the games were cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 corporate sponsors and local businesses released pins. Each Little League World Series brings a new wave of pins to collect. Without an official pin checklist it makes the hunt even more exciting.

Honda has been a sponsor of Little League for over 20 years. Their corporate booth on the Little League campus is constantly busy when the World Series is taking place. Eager collectors lineup early in order to get their hands on the latest Honda pins.

One of the most coveted Little League pins was released by Honda in 1998. Due to a lot of rain, Honda decided to pack up early and go home. Before doing so they handed out only a few hundred of their pins. Those factors have led this pin to become very rare. On the secondary market these have been known to reach close to $300.

Whats This? A Package From Tracy Hackler?

This afternoon I came home from work and saw a package waiting for me.  At first I thought it might have been a box of Press Pass Legends Racing, but its way too early for that.  Instead it was a box of 2010 Absolute Memorabilia Football from Tracy Hackler who recently became the Hobby Marketing Manager for Panini.  This was totally unexpected and I can’t wait to open it this weekend.  If you haven’t noticed already, I’ve added the Panini logo to the “Sponsors” section.  Thanks Panini!
