Anyone collect SW pins?
« on: August 7, 2003, 09:51 PM »
I started collecting SW Weekend pins from Disney a few years ago, but never realized there would be so many every year. Any suggestions on how to display?

I used to collect Disney Pins, and that was the most stressful, time consuming and expensive hobby I've ever taken part in.

I'd suggest either picking up shadow boxes and backing them with some kind of foam core material with a velvet or cloth cover, so you can stick the pins into it. You can also get deep frames and do the same thing, and just matte around them so they dont touch the glass.

There are lots of Star Wars pins out there, plenty from each year of the SW Weekends, regular Disney Exclusive Star Wars pins (characters, etc), a bunch from Pin USA and many others. I have the boxed pins as well as the two framed sets from Pin USA, and they are quite nice

I know what you mean, BDW! It is nice to live in Orlando, but it is tiresome to keep up with what is produced.

There are so very many pin sets now, I am tempted to have a whole wall of pins!  I have yet to get the sets from Pins USA, but thankfully, they are still available. So..many..pins...

I was surprised to see there was still plenty of SWW 2003 pins left from this year's event.

Yes, I have collected pins over the years.

More so with the Disney SWW.

Have most of them but missing some.

I usually prefer exclusives.  Otherwise, I prefer ones I like.

I have only a few Star Wars pin. :-[
My favorite is the Sunday mail pin for Episode III.
It's very hard to find them in my country.
