Pin Highlight: Philadelphia Phillies Bryce Harper WinCraft Player Jersey Pin

Out of stock.  This product is currently not available.  Nothing left.  Gone.  These are just some of the ways to describe the status of this new piece of Bryce Harper merchandise.

As an avid Phillies fan and pin collector, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to own one of these bad boys.  On the same day that I purchased a new Bryce Harper Phillies t-shirt, I got this WinCraft jersey pin.  The Phillies sold out of this pin very quickly.  Luckily, I was able to snag one.

WinCraft is known for making lots of neat pins.  Especially when it comes to special events.  As you can see, this one features a white Phillies jersey with red pinstripes.  Harper’s name, #3, and facsimile signature have been added.  Out of respect for former Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay, Bryce Harper didn’t want to continue wearing #34.  #7 was his second choice, but that’s already taken by Maikel Franco.  Bryce Harper wasn’t going to ask him to change his number just because he showed up.

The Phillies made tons of moves over the winter.  Fans can’t complain about them not trying anything.  I predict the Phillies will go 161-1 this season.  They’ll lose the first game, and win the rest.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: Cleveland Browns WinCraft Fence Pin

You’ve got to feel bad for the Browns.  Historically, they haven’t been a good team for quite a long time.  This season they haven’t won a single game yet.  2016 has to really be tough for them considering the other sports franchises in Cleveland have done so well.  The Cavaliers won the NBA Championship while the Indians went to the World Series.  Maybe Robert Griffin III’s return will get the Browns their first win.  Who am I kidding?  RGIII will probably injure himself somehow drinking out of the Gatorade jug.  He gets hurt a lot.

WinCraft has this fairly new line of NFL pins that mimic the defense and offense signs you see fans holding.  You can actually rotate the letters “D” and “O” depending on who you’re rooting for.  I’ve seen defense sign pins for awhile, but never one that you can change.  They aren’t rare, and can easily be found for under $10.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: WinCraft 2016 MLB All-Star Game FanFest Topps Pin

The 2016 MLB All-Star Game has officially come and gone.  Once again the American League gets home field advantage for the World Series.  Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer won the MVP award as the National League fell 4-2.

Leading up to the All-Star Game was FanFest.  WinCraft always makes a lot of pins for this event.  Some of them you can purchase, while others need to be acquired by trading.  They had a group of pins that would be given out each day at certain times.  Only (100) of each pin would be handed out at that specific time.  These pins historically are sponsored by corporate partners.  For 2016, companies such as Louisville Slugger, Rawlings, Majestic, New Era, Wilson, and Topps sponsored pins.

The Topps pin resembles a baseball card and contains a silhouette pitcher.  A few have popped-up on the secondary market selling for about $7.00.  I always find it cool to see the Topps name on stuff other than cards.
