2015 Topps Future Stars Pin Vintage

Yer daily fix for a frigid Wednesday was a truly accidental find.  Then again, that's how you find most of the good stuff on eBay, isn't it?  I didn't know these pin 'relics' existed, much less in a "Vintage" variation that pays homage to the '87 Future Stars logo.  But I stumbled across an auction for this one about a week ago and won it for about five bucks delivered.  Probably didn't need it, but I had to have it.  The card itself is made from super-thick stock like most of the Topps gimmick inserts these days that contain embedded coins, rings, medallions or Monopoly pieces.
