AAPL Pink Fish Button (1993)
Fri, 07/19/2019 - 7:29pm
Summer Game themes with animals in them can't miss! Everybody loves animals, especially undersea creatures! In 1993, AAPL's summer reading game was clearly all wet, as this cute square, fish-bearing badge clearly demonstrates.
This Square Button features a sturdy fiberboard backing, spring steel pinback, and the glossy confidence that only ownership of this SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE button can bring! This button is rated as [pretty great] on the awesomeness scale and [common] on the rarity scale.
The #11 AAPL Pink Fish Button is available to serious Button Collectors, while supplies last, for 24,900 Summer Game Classic points.

isnt this a little overpriced?
It's very rare, and 26 years old, and only available using pretend library points. Feel free not to order it if you feel it's not a good value!
Simply the best response in all fish pin history!
this pin the same age as me😭
This pin is from when I graduated from high school. 😭
I'm 67 years old, what do I cost?
if this is rare why does it say it is common on the description.
Well, it's common for a rare vintage button, of course! We had about 50 of them. There are some buttons that we only have 5 or 6... you won't see those in the shop this year, but maybe someday!
I am very curious about when was the first year of Summer Game
We don't actually know what year the Summer Reading Game began. The Library had a summer reading club as early as the 1930s:
And we've been doing the Summer Reading Game (the Classic Card) for at least 30-40 years. The Summer Game as you know it began in 2011. Thanks for asking! For more great summer reading photos, see here:
very interesting and wonderful tradition of AADL!
