got mine too...debating on whether to get a second set....as you all said "as if we didnt spend enough at CIV"
You know that they are going to sell out....I wonder if they are laminated like the actual badges...anyone know?
Don't even get the thought of getting a second set in my head...

They better be. The ones from past celebrations have been.

They should be laminated. it'd be ultra cheap if they weren't laminated. I'd be pissed. The price was bad enough. +shipping + tax - killer

Crap - I've been so busy lately, I haven't been able to check the store, plus it's blocked at my work!

I wish they would be able to presell them to con attendees.

Anyone have an extra set?

I don't think the sets on eBay are official sets. My set will be here Thursday and I can't imagine anyone getting their's much sooner. They aren't in anything, they're just laying on a table all bunched together. I would think that these badges will come in some sort of container from SWS.com. It might not be the nice wooden box we got from Celebration III, but perhaps a sleeve or packet maybe.

If that's the case and those sets are going for $150, I can't wait to see what an official set will go for.

These badge auctions are insane. I'm considering putting my (unpunched) VIP badge up on eBay (which was signed by John Knoll, among others).

Did anyone get a tracking # from SWS yet? I got mine, but the number isn't working. I'm getting a "Sorry, no parcels matched your tracking numbers. Please verify the entered tracking numbers and customer id are correct." Anyone else getting this?

I got this too, but it said that they are updated daily, so it could be coming soon.

Mine isn't tracking either. But if they truly did send it, I should have it today. We'll see I spose.

Thanks, guys. I was starting to worry a little. I guess the badges will show up later today.

I can't believe they sold out of them so quickly - the demand is much higher than I thought it would be.

I logged into my account at SWS and the tracking number on there is different than the one they sent me and it says that it's on the truck for delivery.

Cool - I just did the same thing and that tracking # works. Mine should be here today.

My set came today. The badges came bound between metal plates. The front plate is embossed with the CIV logo.
There is a protective film over the plates so it looks bad in the pics.
Very nice in my opinion.

Nice presentation. Do the clasps open if you want to display the badges in some other way?

Thanks for posting those pics! Why didn't I order an extra set when I had the chance?

Darn you West Coasters and your early "getting the goods" ways.............


I'll have to try the SWS tracking number and see where the heck mine is. Will take about five days to make its way to Chi-town.

Again, if anyone has an available JAKE print for sale, please PM me!!!

I have a nifty idea for these badges.

Yes. The rings are hinged and can be removed.

that is pretty nice. I do hope they can come out. After I get them auto'd I don't want to carry them around to anymore cons.

As long as they don't deliver it to another residence like that one time, you are set!

got mine today. Just opened it. Talk about heavy metal. Very sturdy metal covers. The badges look superb. Still $30 or less would've been a better price point considering how much I already spent on CIV (and the car I had to buy that week!) The bikerscout badge is my fave of course!!

So this thing is still not back up after popping up twice. I guess we've seen the last of it.

I'm thinking of framing all of the badges, including the metal covers - what are you guys doing with the badges?

what a bummer, indeed... I mean, how many did they put up for sale, anyway? I was really looking forward to getting these! No use crying over spilt blue milk, I guess...

The badge set actually lasted a lot longer that I expected.......

It was up for a couple two, three hours I believe.

Just had to be online at the right time.

I get them autographed and have plans to one day frame them.
