  • Calling All Disneyland Pin Collectors!!!

    I've never really seen a thread about pin collecting on Mice Chat. How many of you are avid pin collectors? (I won't post a poll since some Mice Chatters *ahem* Speedway *ahem* seem to think that I use too many...) I'm getting to be an avid pin collector - at my last count, I had 193 pins from DL and WDW combined. My aunt and cousin are going to DL next week (they get Pirates and I don't - no fair!) so, of course, I'm sending them on a Pirate pin hunting crusade.

    Hmmm.....How many pins must possess before you are considered a true collector?

      I collect pins but just for my personal pleasure. I buy what I like and do like special ones but I am not crazy enough to make it a business. It's more this year cause of the 50th. Before that it was much less just Pooh, AP, Holiday I was there and anniversary items.

        ok, judging by the response to this thread, I guess MCers aren't too into pins....

          I like pins. I mostly collect Jessica Rabbit, but I also get quite a few Tinkerbells as well. I have picked up a few other pins. I mostly get pins from DIsneydirect. I have 26 Disney pins as this point.

            I've got a couple hundred or so. Mostly holiday pins, 50th Anniversary or limited editions. No real rhyme or reason to them, if I like it I buy it. Kind of an addiction of sorts. To think of the big figs or Olszewski's I could have had if I'd used the money for those instead.

              I have over 2000 - but I've been collecting since 1990!
              Only getting REALLY into it since 2000 when pin trading started!

              It is overwhelming - just some advice... stay within a budget!
              Don't buy every cute pin you see, and use CASH not credit!

              I'm actually trying to narrow down my collection and sell off
              most of my non-Pluto things! I'm trying to be good and stick
              to just Pluto and dated Holidays! I've got to! I'm too in debt!

              It is a great hobby! But make sure it stays a hobby and doesn't
              literally become your entire life like I let it with me. My ex roommate
              and I got SO into it - it was really our entire life! Don't ever
              question where your mortgage payment is gonna come from
              because you used your money on pins!!!

                I have 20. I only get donald pins, hence only 20 and counting.

                  I usedd to collect more than I do now. The last pin I purchased was the 50th pin w/ a huge line. My favorite pins are the signs from the park. I have the Main St. signs, Toontown signs, and the "land" pins. My mom purchased all the "retro" pins that are pictured on one poster. I have always wanted the trash can series. At WDW they had about 1-2 land pins, kinda dissapointing since it has so much more potential than DL.

                    I have a few. It all started when y friend got me a Jessica Rabbit pin for my birthday. I just sort of pick and choose the ones I like, not too serious, but I am getting slightly addicted

                      Pin trading and collecting is an addiction. I probably have over 180 and it truly gets expensive. Once you start you can't stop. I collect Nemo and the Cheshire Cat mostly, but if it looks good I will buy it.

                        Right now I have just over 30 pins in my collection. My main goal is to collect all Space Mountain pins but I also collect pins from the Monorail, Condor Flats, Hockey related pins and pins of the Mighty Ducks.

                          How do you get a new forum going? I think a pin forum would be great!

                            My wife and I just started collecting. Not so much into trading, just creating lanyards we like that are our 'geek badges' displaying our likes.

                              I collect pins, I have about 40 pins, Im in Disneyland every two years and buy mostly attraction pins so my collection is very small. I do get a few off ebay if the price is right.
