huh really? The 15th anniversary came in a plastic wrap though?
Either way do stores or even ebay sell plastic wraps that size so I could just wrap it myself? Might sound kinda weird but I like em in the wraps

I was super bored tonight, so I laid out whatever pins I currently have that are on the poster.
I do have Twisp/Catsby coming in the mail tomorrow (guess I should've waited).
That DLC spot is going to be very lonely for a very long time...

The cardboard is more than thick enough to hold them all.
You'd have to pin it to the wall or something though, tape wouldn't be strong enough.
Actually I'm really not sure how we were supposed to hang a poster with a bunch of pins sticking through it at all? Has anyone actually done that?

So my big question is about the plastic bags. Should I take the pins out to display them? If I do, does it really hurt the future value? Should I really care about that?
Arrrgghhh!!! These questions are warping my fragile, little mind.

Not the greatest image quality, taken with my phone. Just wanted to have a record of my collection from 2013. I have the Pinny Arcade poster, but haven't taken it out of the poster tube. Waiting until I get a larger shadow box to fit it. I'll try to get a better image using a better camera when I have the poster with all the pins attached to it.
Would love to see more of everyone else's collections up to this point!

The last link works for me too. Thanks for posting that binder, that's very interesting to see.

I have a shadow box similar to yours, and I've posted about this before somewhere ( I don't remember which thread), but when I bought it, it seems like the pins won't hold unless i push them all the way through the box itself. Someone suggesting buying styrofoam or some sort of cork, but I was just wondering what you did, or if anyone has any suggestions!

The amazing Kristin Lindsay gave it to me. Looking forward to seeing your collection!
One thing I'm most interested in seeing is how everyone arranges their Pins. Aussie Ben's custom merch-colored shadowbox is one of my favorites. I also enjoy how some have surrounded the Lookouts Crest with the rest of the set and Hanna. It makes me wonder what other clever things can be done to show off various sets, and maybe instead of one large shadowbox, perhaps I should have several smaller displays as some people have done. Showcasing each type of set in its own shadowbox could look brilliant. As fantastic as the Pinny Arcade poster is, it would seem kind of boring if everyone used that as their layout. Then again...https://twitter.com/danlew42/status/418856934947553280
His Pins look incredible on it, they really stand out with the different colored backgrounds. I hope they have another one next year for all the new Pins!
