Pandora officially announced via their Facebook page and Pandora Club email today that the new MLB Collection will be in stores this week! This comes just a couple days after these mysterious charms appeared on their iPhone app. Even though the stock photos haven’t been uploaded on the Pandora website, thanks to a couple readers, I’m happy to give a preview of the collection here. As stated before, there will be team logo engraved dangles (Unforgettable Moments) and branded wood beads, but both these types of charms will be $65.
A bit of a mixed reaction to the announcement of these charms, with some fans aghast that Pandora would create Major League Baseball charms before military and NFL themed beads. Others had a good point that these are being released at the wrong time since we’re in the playoffs now and not the regular season. Personally, I’m not a baseball fan so these don’t appeal to me, but it’s definitely an indication of the direction that Pandora is taking by doing these niche interest charms.
While it’s not explicitly stated that these will only be offered in North America, I can’t imagine other markets will have them. Although perhaps this opens the door for other countries to do similar team sports logo charms. Currently, these charms can be purchased from the MLB store but will be arriving at stores soon. I’ve updated the pictures to include some of the missing dangles and almost all the wood beads as well, but one is still missing (Marlins dangle). What do you think of the designs? Worth the money?
