The purpose of this site is to provide and get factual information about Jaycee trading pins. The Pinsource began as an idea of 4 men in March of 1987 in Missouri. They were all Jaycee pin traders and they all believed there should be a way to collect and maintain detailed information about Jaycees pins and their own collections. This was a long time before the Internet and three ring binders was the only method of distribution available. This information is now available online with a database of over 8,000 pins and over 2,000 pictures with more being continually added.
