When most people think about Disney, they are probably thinking about the Happiest Place on Earth or the massive collection of delightful animated movies. Most people are probably not thinking about thousands upon thousands of commemorative pins - but surprisingly, pins trading comprises a major subculture within the Disney fan universe.
These little metal pins might seem like a strange thing to collect, but according to some insane Disney pin trading stories, there are people who have over 5,000 pins, some of which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Some adorn the vests of Disneyland social club members, while others are kept pristine in velvet-lined binders.
