A Wilderness Explorer is a friend to all

This is the pin set that started it all. I’ve written previously about the first two pins I bought, but this Hidden Mickey set was the reason I got into pin trading.

I’ve always loved the Wilderness Explorers from Up and loved the idea of being able to have Russell’s badges in pin form. Unfortunately, this series is one of the most popular to counterfeit. I see fakes all over Disneyland whenever I go.

After trading and receiving several fake pins from this series, I finally finished it (with the completer pin) after about a year of trading!

What pins got you hooked on trading?
