So, there was a pin grading service that was started a few years ago. I don’t think it’s active anymore.September 22, 2019 at 8:40 PM in reply to: The Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary Pin Collection #57828
Did you have a good time?
Oh and Wave C has arrived at DLR and WDW!
So, years ago, you could buy the Hidden Mickey pins in the year AFTER the release. Then when Disney messed up (or forgot or whatever you want to call it) the Hidden Mickey pins one year..I want to say it was 2017 when no HMs were released….Disney decided to sell them in blind bags and then, about a month later, release them on cast lanyards.
The completer pins were sold as purchase with purchase pins, the year AFTER the release, as single pins, originally for $1 or $2 with a minimum purchase.
Years ago, when you bought the blind bag, you would get two hidden mickey pins from the same series. Now, it’s two hidden mickey pins from the same wave with a possibility of getting a completer pin.
Of course, years ago, they would stagger releases as one HM release per month so in February, January’s HM pins would be a bit easier to find because people would be looking for February’s releases more than January’s…..those were fun times!
Were you able to get them? The LE size was pretty high so I think you should have been!
It is sad to think about spending real money and getting fake pins. Unfortunately, when most of us pin traders just started out, that’s exactly what we did. 🙁
But, rather than purchasing on eBay, there are quite a few sellers (that sell on eBay too, but also sell on other forms of social media) that sell authentic pins at $1.75-3 per pin + shipping.
WDW is out now.
DLR is finally out (as of last week!)
First thing to do, OP, is to identify the pins. Yes, they are Lilo & Stitch, but what kind? Disney Shopping, Disney Auctions, Disneyland, Walt Disney World, that type of thing.
So check out Pin Trading Database (24,000 pins) or PinPics (100,000 pins & buttons) and find out the name of the pin. It is difficult so what you’re going to want to do is start an account with each of those databases and then start searching. Once you find the pin you have, add them to your “owns” list, which will help when you want to list them on eBay.April 8, 2018 at 5:09 PM in reply to: What's the highest amount you're willing to spend on one pin? #27904
It depends on the pin 🙂
AMC will advertise it the week after the movie comes out in theatres. They (AMC) typically do not offer the pins the first week of release since a lot of people already go watch movies the first weekend of the release. AMC (and Regal) will usually offer something to entice people back the second weekend (or third weekend) of its release.
Excited but sad that it’s in the park 😛
Some people trade box lunch for box lunch, but most people try to trade for other pins. So, say someone wants box lunch pins but don’t want to buy it. They have various rack pins in their traders that they want to trade for them and so on.
