Olympic Pins

This has nothing to do with baseball cards, but I thought it was worth a post.  I came into possession today of some really cool Kellogg's Olympic pins:

The above is actually a group of 9 pins (8 triangle pins of different sports and one large Red Cross pin), and it is quite cool.  Put together, it's the size of an index card, and would look really neat displayed in a shadow box, surrounded by the pins below: 

These were the standard pins I got.  I like the Keebler Elves riding the double decker bus.

I have a modest pin collection that I've built over the years unintentionally, but it's one of those things that I think I could really get into.  Maybe one of my kids will take a shine to these things and it will be a hobby we can get into together down the road and the few pieces I've accumulated will make a nice start.

Never been much of a pin collector, but these are pretty cool. It also makes me crave some E.L. Fudge cookies.
