Pin Traders Pack
Thursday, 10 May 2012
May 10 - There is a new pin product available at the London 2012 shop at St Pancras - the Pin Trader's Pack. This is a sealed pack which contains 5 pins from a range of 30 designs all for £15.
The label on the back of the pack explains the concept of pin trading and promises at one 'extremely rare' pin, either:
- Mini white logos
- Silver mascot
I've heard of one collector who did get a very good set of pins, I on the other hand would consider that I did 'ok' - a few traders for Games time. I suppose though, that is the point of the pack, and at least the pins are essentially half price.
The picture on the front of the pack shows the media centre pin mention there a few weeks ago and also a 10 Downing Street pin which I don't think we've seen from Honav yet. Therefore I wouldn't read too much into the images on the front of the pack.
I don't know if the packs are available at any other locations. If you see them, please leave a comment to inform others.
