In some areas of the sports world, pin collecting is a big deal and has been that way for decades.
Olympic pins, press pins and other areas of collecting in this wearable genre — one that’s arguably bigger away from sports — can all carry some flair within their pieces, but none of them are like one artist’s line of pins showing pop culture icons and carrying nods to sports personalities.
Its name? Patti Lapel.
A.J. Styles is reportedly set to make his WWE debut sometime in the next week with the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view set for Sunday in Orlando and the Raw and Smackdown tapings also in Florida next week.
That’s good news for wrestling card collectors since he’s a relatively plentiful autograph, a potential popular name for the story lines heading into the biggest time of the year with WrestleMania coming soon, and he’s also a bargain auto to pick up at the moment.
How much of a bargain?
