This pin is my most valued treasure from the United Soccer Coaches Convention, held in Chicago this past weekend (January 10-13) and they were just giving them away!
It strikes me that what one person sees as a cheap trinket, others see as valuable artifacts, validation of an experience. Trophies and medals at tournaments should be seen from the other side, as how the teams see yours.
It’s not about the SIZE of the trophy or medal, but the experience it represents. These pins probably cost pennies, but this one here for me — it’s priceless and irreplaceable.
