The third official collection of CS:GO pins can now be bought online.
Series 3 pins are available for purchase in both their physical and in-game forms. In terms of grade quality, there are two Extraordinary “Reds,” two Exotic “Pinks,” three Remarkable “Purples,” and four High Grade “Blues” in the collection.
This set of pins was initially only buyable by attending the ELEAGUE Major: Boston in person in January, but now Valve has made the Series 3 pins available to all Counter-Strike fanatics. If you order a pin, you’ll be sent a Blind Bag, which is essentially like an in-game case drop. You won’t know which pin you’ll be given until you open it.
For collectors who want the pin for their CS:GO profile but don’t want a physical copy, then you can buy the cosmetic on the Steam community market. The main difference between having only an in-game pin and having both a physical and in-game copy is that buying the in-game copy will not give the pin “Genuine” quality. That “Genuine” label is displayed on the pin itself while on your CS:GO profile.
