Olympic pins valuable mostly for creating memories

< Previous Page

"I still field questions calling about specific pins," said Melanie Welch, the Olympic Park’s marketing manager. "A lot of people collect for World Cup events as well. ... After we’ve hosted something, people ask if we have pins associated with it or not."

Those 2002 pins tucked away in a basement or in a drawer along with perhaps a Roots Olympic hat may not be worth a fortune. But they should bring back some fun memories.
