I found an old pokemon pin in a box today, that I bought in a garage sale about 10 years ago, or more... It features a soul-less Pikachu, dancing with a Squirtle and a Charmander. So well, I checked if it was conterfeit or not, so I check behind the pin.

It comes from Hard Rock Cafe. It is written:
"Special Edition
Only 50PCS Made"

So well, I checked on google image and on some websites, I found no pictures of it, but I know that some pins goes up to $150.
If you guys have any info on this, it would be appreciated. o_O

I actually have a huge collection of pins, around 200 on a tack board in my room. I'm going to do a little digging. If it's as rare as you say, I may want to buy it off you.

Okay nice! :)

I'll probably contact Hard Rock Cafe to get some info about this pin. Another thing... I noticed that they ran out of black plastic while producing this pin... there is a small spot of black between pikachu and charmander, but nowhere else. I guess it makes it more unique, if it's the only one out of the 50.

So far I found nothing; no images or any information. I'll contact them and bring back some info. :)

I got a response from Hard Rock, and they said they don't produce pokemon pins. So it's counterfeit.
Oh well, too bad.

Yeah, I did some digging too yesterday, turns out they make 'Limited Edition' pins, not 'Special Edition' ones. Oh well.

Actually, it's written "Limited Edition" :oops: My mistake lol.

But the logo is actually different, so it's counterfeit.

Here's the response from the support:
Quote:
Dear Carl,

Thank you for contacting Hard Rock Customer Care and for your inquiry. Unfortunately Hard Rock does not produce Pokemon pins. This pin is not a Hard Rock pin, therefore we do not have information regarding it.

Please feel free to contact us again if we may be of any help to you in the future.
