    Be very careful when buying on eBay! There are many trustworthy sellers, but there are some crooks. Personally I avoid anyone selling from China. Some are selling fakes and stolen pins.

    Gastown Photo has a sign in the window advertising the presale of the Team Canada Hockey Jersey Framed Photo & Pin Set. The set features: Official Team Canada replica jersey players of all 23 players surrounding a licensed image of the men's hockey team at centre ice with their gold medals, and is completed by a plate saluting the Olympic Champions. The set is limited to 350. Artiss Aminco recently completed a liquidation deal with Hudson House Trading of Vancouver. With the exception of the Team Canada Framed Set described above, any & all future pin orders are to be placed through Hudson House Trading - the final channel of distribution. The cost of the Team Canada Hockey Jersye Framed Photo & Pin set is $370.

    Is there anyway of seeing photos or a list of the pins?

    Unless NBC has changed their policy, they will not accept orders for 2010 Olympic lapel pins from Canada. Even after setting up a profile and account, clicking on the pin link will just takes me back to the same page. The site will not allow Canadians even to view their 2010 pins.

    Sorry, I waited too long to get that beautiful Samsung 2-0-1-0 set ... that is a definite keeper. I also have the complete GE sports set ... but will not part with it either! My advice ... be patient!!! I recently added some pins to my collection that I have been trying to get for 4-5 years!

    The 2-0-1-0 set is not from Panasonic, it is from Samsung. And yes I have and it is stunning! One of my favorites of the 2010 Olympics.

    The Gold Medal Hockey pin #1602 sold out the day it went on sale. However, Hudson House may be getting some more in May.

    Artiss Aminco has released a new 2010 Olympic pin ... the Gold Medal pin. It is available at Hudson House Trading and Gastown Photo.

    Many of the different shades of color are just the result of the manufacturing process. For example, you will find Quatchi in many shades of brown. There are 3 different Royal Mint pins that were handed out during the Olympics at the display. There is also an internal Royal Mint pin that was never handed out or for sale. The one pin in which there are 2 legitimate different colors is the Umbrella #1157. It was originally released in a light blue - almost a light grey. Artiss Aminco, the manufacturer, did not like it so changed it to a dark blue which is the more common version.

    Try Gastown Photo or Hudson House Trading for any retail pins you are missing. Hudson House still has 3 rotary racks of pins.
