History of Cooperstown Trading Pins​

Cooperstown trading pins have become an integral part of baseball culture, especially in youth leagues and tournaments. These small collectible pins are frequently traded among players, coaches and fans and are revered for their unique designs and attached sentimental value. But where did the tradition of pins trading come from, and how did it evolve into the culture we know today?

Early Start
The tradition of trading pins dates back to the early days of baseball. In the late 1800’s, baseball teams often exchanged pins as a sign of friendship and sportsmanship. These pins usually feature a team logo or other baseball-related imagery and are worn on a player’s cap or lapel, primarily to show the team’s identity.

However, it wasn’t until the early 20th century that trading pins became a more common practice. In 1912, the Boston Red Sox and New York Giants played in the World Series, and the teams began handing out pins to players and fans as souvenirs. This sparked a trend, and soon other teams followed suit and began handing out pins at their own games and events in order to show fans that they were a supporter.

Birth of the Cooperstown Trading Pin
The tradition of the Cooperstown Trading Pin really took off in the ’80s, in part due to the opening of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. Baseball fans from all over the country began to flock to Cooperstown to see the exhibits and artifacts, and, because there were so many fans, many jumped at the opportunity to start carrying their own pins to trade with other fans.

As Trading Pins grow in popularity, so does the variety and creativity of the Cooperstown Trading Pin itself. The Cooperstown Trading Pin is starting to feature a more refined design that includes team logos, player imagery and other baseball-related themes.

Collection Culture
Today, the Cooperstown Trading Pin is an important part of baseball culture, especially in the youth leagues and tournaments. Players and fans alike love to collect and trading pins as a way to show their support and sense of belonging to their teams and to create great friendships with other baseball lovers.

The pins themselves have become extremely collectible, with some rare pins fetching hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Many collectors start scouring online marketplaces and attending trade events in search of rare and unique pins to add to their collections.

Wholesale lapel pins are custom-made pins that are purchased in bulk by businesses, organizations, or individuals for a variety of purposes, such as for promotional or branding activities, recognition or achievement awards, or as collectibles. These lapel pins typically feature a small design or emblem and are attached to the lapel of a jacket, blazer, or suit.

Cooperstown trading pins have become a popular collectible for baseball enthusiasts, especially in youth leagues and tournaments. These small, colorful pins feature unique designs that represent teams, players, and baseball-related themes, making them fun and collectible keepsakes. If you’re interested in collecting Cooperstown trading pins, here are some tips and tricks to help you start building your collection kingdom and improve your pin trading experience.

Know what you’re looking for: Before you start collecting Cooperstown trading pins, it’s important to first be clear about what you’re looking for. Do you want to collect trading pins for a specific team, league or tournament? Still looking for a rare or limited edition pin, or just looking for some collectibles on a whim?

By setting clear goals and priorities, you can focus on one thing and make your pin collection more rewarding.

Attend pin trading events: One of the best ways to quickly build your collection of Cooperstown trading pins is to attend pin trading events, such as tournaments or fan festivals. These events provide a great opportunity for you to meet other collectors, trade pins with them and discover novel designs and themes.

When attending these events, be sure to bring enough Cooperstown trading pins to trade, giving priority to bringing duplicates or pins that are not a priority for your collection. This will provide you with greater flexibility in your transactions and allow for smoother transaction negotiations.

Consider online marketplaces: In addition to participating in pin trading events, you can also find and buy Cooperstown trading pins at various online marketplaces. These platforms allow you to search for a specific pin or theme, and be able to find rare or limited-edition pins that may not be available at local events more easily than attending a live event.

When buying pins online, be sure to read the reviews of other buyers to confirm that the pins are of high quality.

Display and organize your collection: Once you start building out your Cooperstown trading pins collection area, you’ll want to find ways to display and organize your pins nicely. There are many creative ways to display your pins, such as using cork boards, shaded boxes, or pin binders, to name a few.

Also, it’s important to organize your collection by team, league or theme. This will allow you to quickly find a specific pin and make your collection easier to browse.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to make soft enamel lapel pins

To create soft enamel lapel pins, begin by designing your desired artwork. Once the design is ready, a mold is made by etching the design onto a metal plate. The metal base, usually brass or copper, is then cut into the desired shape and plated with finishes like gold, silver, or nickel. 

Next, each recessed area of the design is filled with enamel paint, using a small brush or syringe. Afterward, the pin is baked to cure and solidify the enamel. Once cooled, the pin undergoes a polishing process to create a smooth surface and enhance its visual appeal. 

A pin backing or fastener is attached to the back, and a thorough quality check ensures a flawless outcome. The result is a soft enamel lapel pin with vibrant colors, textured details, and a professional finish.

What are soft enamel pins?

Soft enamel pins are a type of lapel pin that features a design with recessed areas filled with colored enamel paint. The term “soft” refers to the texture of the enamel after it is baked and cooled. Soft enamel pins have a slightly raised metal outline around each colored section, creating a dimensional and textured appearance.

How to make hard enamel lapel pins

Create a mold of the design, etching it onto a metal plate or using a digital printing method. Apply enamel paint to each recessed area, ensuring it fills up to the metal surface. Allow the enamel to dry before polishing the pin to remove excess enamel and create a smooth surface.

Bake the pin to harden the enamel and achieve a glossy finish. Then, grind and buff the pin to ensure the enamel is level with the metal surface. 

Finally, attach a pin backing, such as a butterfly clutch or rubber clutch, to complete the hard enamel lapel pin. The result is a durable, high-quality pin with a polished appearance and vibrant colors.

What are your lapel pins made from?

We use a range of metals to produce our pins. The most popular kinds are made of brass, steel, and zinc. The base metal is determined by the type and form of pin.

What metal plating options do you offer for your pin?

We provide standard platings in gold, silver, and copper with every order. We also provide improved antique finishes that give your pins a worn appearance.
