    Need info for 1988 set of Disneyland pins

    Back in 1988 Disneyland did an Olympic Team Salute for the Summer Olympics. Free pins were handed out at the main gates upon entering the park. Does anybody know how many pins were in the set?

    Here's a photo of five pins I have from the set:


    Here's a close-up of the Minnie pin:


    Here's a photo I took of the actual event, I was 9 at the time:

    Oh wow!!
    I can't help ya out but I love those pins!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    That's the set!! Wow, I didn't think there were 30 pins in the set. Just curious, how much did you pay for the complete set?
