For spinners, these are made simply by attaching small pins through hole in bigger pin and allow the smaller pin to freely spin around.
As for blinkies, they’re what the name indicates; they got built-in lights that are blinking or flashing. The light is just a small LED that is powered by small fixed battery in the back side of the pin with an on and off switch. The flashing LED is typically fixed in place of the character’s eyes depicted on the pin or, this can be used in showing the location of the hometown of the team on the map.
When it comes to baseball lapel pins, there are different finished that can be used for it similar to glitters that are perfect for catching light in the most attractive way or highlight the name of the team. On the other hand, its translucent colors allow shiny polished metal of the pin to reflect the light. As a matter of fact, you can get to choose glow in the dark or fluorescent color on the pin.
