I think there is some anger and resentment built up when people say things like “Forced to buy”, or “Missing Out”...
NOBODY is forced to buy anything.
I bought the BM66SLE
I bought Supreme
Nobody forced me
I didn’t buy GOT, KISS, WWE, SW, Aero etc etc. I bought the pins I wanted to own. I paid what I felt comfortable paying for them. Nobody forced me to do it.
I’m not a sucker. I’m not an idiot.
If I want a Beatles pin, I will buy it. I will only buy it if it seems like a pin I’ll want to play a lot.
Value propositions are arbitrary.
