Pin Trading

I'm sure most Little League people trade pins at different tournaments, Little League meetings and at other events and you might even have your own personal pin that you give out. If you do, you would be in pin trading heaven here.

Pin trading at the World Series is an art form and it's not just for kids. There are even some people that bring suitcases full of pins they have collected over the years to see what else they can get. Though most pins are available for trading, it might take 5 or 6 of your pins to get 1 on theirs. Die hard pin traders have "sets" that can be many pins that make up the set. For example, each year we have a Little League Network pin made up to give away here. Now there are people that come up to get their pin just to add to the others they have collected from previous years. I also have some of the pins from those years and might give (or trade) a set of those for something I've been trying to find. Being an umpire though, I mainly try to collect umpire pins.

On the grounds next to our tent is the pin trading tent. Each day there can be hundreds of people (kids and adults alike) trading. At some of the hotels in town, there are even pin trading rooms setup that always attract the hard-core traders. If you're looking for something special, the pin trading rooms are the place to be!

    I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
    the indexes easily.

    It's hard enough for the blogger to be the object of gossip by those around him or her, for all the things he or she had written frankly in the blogspot page; the ideas, the opinions, the personal stuff. So, being okay with a bit of ridicule is a small give-and-take Quick Loan
