    I finally pulled the trigger and bought a full set of these (minus the Oogie Boogie completer/chaser/whatever you call it) from who I think is a reputable seller. I went for it because there are so many fakes of these pins out there, so finding them on their original cards made me feel much better about it. I already took Shock and Barrel out of their plastic and I feel confident that this set is the real deal.

    I'll probably put the Jack, Sally and Zero pins up for sale or trade, and when I get the chance I'm also going to update my thread over in the pin comparisons section trying to point out the differences between these genuine pins and the counterfeits.

    I got a what I would call a grail pin today in the mail. I love how Aladdin looks on the carpet. It reminds me of the carpet ride in the Cave of Wonders.

    Here is a better look at the Aladdin pin.

    I got another pin at the same time.

    Got one of my grails!! I now have the beautiful Jasmine Birthstone pin thanks to a trade with Slbrabham. Sarah also included a couple of zaps for Haunted JR. I’m forever grateful...thanks Sarah!

    Ooh!! Congrats! Is the top one a single super slider pin? I agree, that’s a very cool pose of Aladdin on the carpet!

    It is a pin set that was sold with the display to look like a road. I wanted the Aladdin pin from this set. The set came from the Family Pin Gathering event from 2004. (Thank Goodness for PinPics :p).

    I don't know if I will keep the other pins or display though it is cool looking.

    Thanks. If I see it come up again I'll let you know.

    I saw the set for sale way below the original price so I had to get it. All the pin craziness of the last two weeks seemed to cause some people to sell off some pins for cash. Also, I think people were spending on the new pins instead of old pins. I snagged another grail that's coming in the mail this week of Dr. Facilier.

    Holy grail mail Batman!!

    I finally have a mega grail! :D I've been after this pin since day one of pin trading! And even though there's a color error on Aladdin's belt, that's probably why I was able to get it as "easily" as I did XD I still love it though. :D now to hunt the others in the set! [​IMG]

    Just got these two rare Esmeralda pins from Poohead on PinPics! The one with Phoebus only has 6 traders, and the other pin only has 4. So I'm super glad I found someone willing to trade for them! I might actually be an Esmeralda completist someday...

    I also got a package yesterday from a certain DPF member... but that will be posted about in the zaps section. ;)

    Congrats! I actually didn't even notice the color error until you pointed it out. Still looks awesome. :)

    I didn't notice it until it arrived. But still, not a bad all things considered. :)

    Not at all - I would happily take a color error for one of my LE 100 grails!
