Olympic Pin Collectors

posted on 20 January 2012 | posted in Olympic Pin Collectors

Pin badge collecting may not be a hobby immediately associated with the Olympics, but a gathering of "pinheads" in Stratford revealed their addiction is fuelled by a passion for the Games.

The meeting, held in a room overlooking the burgeoning 2012 site, was held for Olympic pin collectors and traders interested in Olympic pin badges. About 50 or so people arrived during the first hour and their chat was punctuated by the clinking of metal as collectors unwrapped display wallets and boards dripping with badges.
