My name is Paul Kelmer and I live in Brandon, Florida (USA), just outside of Tampa.
I have been collecting pins since the fall of 1993. My daughter (Michele, the Soccer Player) gave me two World Cup USA '94 venue sets as a birthday gift and I have been hooked ever since.

My collection includes:


  • Women's World Cup
    • 1991 China
    • 1995 Sweden
    • 1999 United States
    • 2003 China (1 pin)
    • 2003 United States
    • 2007 China
    • 2011 Germany
    • 2015 Canada
    • 2019 France
  • World Cup USA 1994
  • Olympics 1996 Atlanta (soccer only)
  • US Women's National Team
  • Misc. US Soccer
  • FIFA - trophies, logos, events


I currently have over 2,500 pins in my collection, most of them from World Cup USA '94.

On March 31st of 2012, I retired from IBM after 44 years. So when I'm not playing with my pin collection, I spend as much time as possible fishing in Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

I have received a number of favorable comments on this website. I must confess that the credit (blame?) should once again go to my daughter, Michele, who was once a professional WebMaster (WebMs?), although I do the work and she critiques.

If you have any questions about my collection or have pins that I am missing, please don't hesitate to contact me.


PS - The resolution of all graphics has been set to about 800x600 to keep file sizes small. If you would like a high resolution JPG file (about 2MB) please send me a note identifying the file name.
