    Guest Experience Manager
    I am a Cast Member at WDW, working as a GEM (Guest Experience Manager for those who do not know) at one of the Moderate-Level Resorts. When I first started with the company I always told myself that I would never be a "pin" person who collected pin after pin. But that all changed when the 2011 HM set was released and I decided I wanted all of the T-shirts. If I had only known then what I know now about how much of an obsession it would become, I would have not wanted them.
    At first I told myself my collecting would be limited to the Hidden Mickey pins but nowadays I add OE pins that catch my fancy to my collection, as well as select Mystery Box and Mystery Bag sets. While I do not collect every new release pin, or pin mystery set, the cost of becoming a "pin" person has become astronomical. I am sure many others here have this same vice. With that being said I am well over 3,000 pins in my collection.
    The thought does hit me once in a while to liquidate my collection and trade off or sell a good portion of them, if not all, including quite a few Artist Proof and Pre-Production (AP and PP) pins. But, I can never bring myself to do so. I do like to trade and I have quite a few doubles and triples and quadruplets due to my incessant buying of multiple boxes and bags.
