These novelty pins were discovered by Norm Call back in 1996 with the arrival of the Yokohama pin. Since that time several others have appeared generally to commemorate 'Boys Day' a traditional Japanese celebration where koi nobori are hung outside households.
Hard Rock Cafe have attracted their own collectors of memorabelia making these Koi examples doubly precious to both KoiPin and Hard Rock fans alike.
