Disney Pin Collecting eBay Guide
Welcome to our Disney Pin Collecting Guide. While we do not claim to be experts in this field (we've only been collecting since early 2005),
since we started we have learned a great deal about collecting
strategies, useful resources, reputable sellers and tricks of the trade -
and we now have one of the largest selections of Limited Edition Disney
Pins available on eBay.
Disney Pins - especially "official" Disney pins - offer a unique mixture of characteristics seldom found in
other collectibles. They can be used in many different ways - worn as a
pin / picece of jewelry, collected and stored in a pin collecting book,
framed in a shadow box and displayed like artwork, etc.. They can be
collected by every age group - We've found children as young as 3, and
adults in their 80s collecting the pins. There seems to be a pin in
every price range, and a marketplace - We've seen Disney sell Brand New
Pins for as low as $4, to pins selling right here on eBay for over
$1,000. Speaking of marketplaces, there appears to be a very large and
growing market for Disney Pins, as well as a large following of
collectors. As we write this guide, there are over 13,700 auction
listings on eBay for Disney pins! The Disney website also has an entire
section dedicated to Disney pin collecting with upcoming events, pins
and more. Finally, these collectible items are backed by one of the best
brands of our time - Disney.
One thing we have found is that the vast majority of the time, the photos you see in the listings do not accurately reflect the true beauty
of the pins. All in all, we believe Disney Pin Collecting will by a
hobby for generations to come.
