is this a smart purchase?

so i'm on ebay looking for some 1984 summer olympics memorabilia because: a) i like this logo

b) i like sam the olympic eagle
and c) i'm an idiot.

but i found this pin. it's sam the eagle, holding a shotgun, wearing shooting glasses, ear muffs, and a pouch on his belt that i can only assume holds whiskey and ammunition.
it's probably the coolest pin i've ever seen. but i've bought dumb stuff on ebay before and i've regretted buying some of it. i can't tell if this is a stupid purchase or not. i mean, how does one know these things? how does one KNOW?

there's no such thing as a stupid purchase. Only stupid actors. I think its a fine little piece of americana. And i say that because Im a los angelino born on the 4th of july 1984. So protect that pin, lest you become another one of my victims. another one of my THEFT victims!

WHOA. I was AT those olympics (I was 2). And I still have the official sam eagle porcelain cup and saucer. and a giant commemorative sam eagle beach towel that I used at every single swim meet of my youth and is so worn out that it absorbs nothing but it still the most awesome thing on earth.

also. nice blog.
