I do. Wish they were offered as stadium giveaways more often.

I have a few of them, and was going to collect them, but there were too many so I gave up.

I have a couple that I got on ebay for my leather jacket. I had five at one point and have since lost three. :-(

My wife collects them. She has over 30 pins. It's pretty cool to look at them.

I collect the ones from that guy at SoxFest every year, they are great. He's done work for the Sox directly in the past, but I don't think the team offers his stuff for sale at the ballpark.

I bought a bag of about 15 old ones off of Ebay. Some are pretty cool. I'll post some pics.

Curious as to what was the winning bid on that?

I Collect all sorts of pins. A pin from the 2003 All-Star Fan Fest is in one of the holes on my 2005 WS cap.

They were cheap around $15. None of them are worth anything, just cool to have. One of them has advertising from sportsphone.

All of mine, I got as give-aways at the park. Except a Sox/US flag pin I bought at a SoxFest years ago.

They're a little the worse for wear as I wore them all on a cap until recently. Robin's 1993 Gold Glove pin and Frank's 1993 MVP pin were the little photos. The same year they gave these out (1994) they were also going to give out a Gene Lamont pin for 1993's Manager of the Year, but that Friday night game, for which I had tickets, turned out to be the first day of the strike. :(: Then in 1995 Lamont was fired a month into the season. I guess they scrapped the pins. For some reason I wished I could get that pin, but I got over it.

IMO, that's $15 well spent. I'd also beg to differ on the value of those pins. The old WS pins should more than cover what was spent on the lot.

What are with the "1960 World Series Pin" and "1964 World Series Pin" that have the White Sox logo on them? That seems to make no sense. :?:
