Show Your Love for Baseball with Sports Trading Pins

In any sport played today, you are going to see countless of hardcore fans who turned collectors and like collecting stuff such as sports trading pins. True fans of this sport are allotting time, effort and money to collect game memorabilia. Believe it or not, any item you can think of, there are available collectibles for it such as autographed items, used ticket stubs and so on.

In the game of baseball, there’s that one item that fans have in their collection and it is the pins. The popularity of these pins lead to the creation of multiple styles of it alongside various descriptive terms like sliders, danglers, blinkies, bobble heads and spinners. It certainly is can be confusing if you are not a sports trading pin trader or collector.

Danglers are pins that have smaller pins attached to it together with jump rings so by that, the smaller pin dangles literally beneath the bigger pin. When it comes to sliders, it’s made by forming bigger pins with the slot or hole cut out of it and smaller pin is fixed via the slot so it does slide across the front of bigger pin.

Bobble head pins are the two-part pin wherein the bigger pin is made resembling the body of the baseball player while the smaller pin forms the head of the player attached to the body using a spring, which is the reason why it is referred to as “bobbles”.

For spinners, these are made simply by attaching small pins through hole in bigger pin and allow the smaller pin to freely spin around.

As for blinkies, they’re what the name indicates; they got built-in lights that are blinking or flashing. The light is just a small LED that is powered by small fixed battery in the back side of the pin with an on and off switch. Flashing LED is usually fixed in place of the eyes of the character or may be used to show the location of the team’s hometown on map.

If you want to catch light attractively or perhaps, thinking of ways on how you can highlight the team’s name, you may consider collecting baseball lapel pins. If you wish the shiny polished metal of your pin to reflect light and be emphasized, then go for translucent colors. On your pin, you can even buy one that have glow in the dark or fluorescent color.

These sports trading pins are quite attractive and least expensive collector’s item you can get. You can purchase special edition collectors bag too in order to protect your pins.
