Fairmount, Indiana is the town where James Dean was raised from age 9 to age 18.

You can now buy beautiful enameled pins marking James Dean’s life.  Each year the Fairmount, Indiana, Lions Club has commissioned a pin.  Each year’s production is limited to 1000 pins.  The 2012 pin is available now!

There are some pins left from recent years.  The club has voted to release this collection for a limited time. 

Each pin has a numbered certificate of authenticity and a bit of history pertaining to the particular Dean picture chosen for that year.  The pins are licensed by CMG, the licensing entity in charge of James Dean memorabilia.

Here is the 2011 pin. Order from Jake. Ordering directions are further down this page.

James Dean co-starred with Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson in the 1956 movie Giant, filmed in Marfa, Texas. Giantwas Dean’s last film, released about a year after his death. This photo was taken on theGiantset. TheReatta house is in the background, and Jimmy is standing with a horse used inGiant.

This pin is the 22ndin the series commemorating the anniversary of Dean’s death, September 30, 1955.

See the other pins here, and the ordering instructions.

Here is the 2010 pin, also fromGiant.



The pin back shows the fine quality of these Lion pins.  My camera stopped working in color so some pictures are only greyscale.

     Lions Clubs Are Wonderful

    Since Lions clubs were established, Lions have been dedicated to giving back to their communities. Lions clubs provide community parks, playgrounds, senior citizen programs and more.

    Lions remain committed to improving the lives of those less fortunate—around the world and right at home.

    Fairmount Lions Club History:

      The Fairmount Lions Club was Chartered on January 6, 1947. The work of the

    Lions Club members continues to serve the community and its citizens in

    whatever way is required. Early projects were funded primarily from the sale

    of hot dogs & burgers at Fairmount High School Football games.

      The Money we raise from the sale of James Dean Pins is given in Memory of

    him as a Scholarship to a Graduating Senior at our local Madison-Grant High School. We

    also have  a food booth at the James Dean Run Car Show the last full week-end

    in September. We will be selling  James Dean Pins  next to the DJ at the

    Park that week-end also.

      Other Projects that we support are:

      Cancer Control, Eye Bank, Leader Dog for the Blind, Sightfirst Programs,

    Recycling eye glasses for the needy, Speech & Hearing, Benches for the park,

    Christmas Lights, Flags for downtown, Round Robbins, Fairmount Fire Dept,

    Helping Hands. We have an active club and dedicated members who care about

    Fairmount and its citizens.
