Your Ripken Baseball trading pins will be hand crafted with extreme detail. Once your design has been completed we create a die or mold of your design. This is then stamped into metal so that you have raised and recessed pin cavities. The cavities are then filled by hand with liquid color enamel. Once the trading pin cavities are filled we harden it through a heating process. The final Ripken Baseball trading pin is very beautiful but also very tough for years of trading and enjoyment.
