Political Wire links a story from the Providence Journal which reports that political memorabilia is again becoming quite collectable and more specifically, any old button, pen, etc, which harks back to baby boomer memory is even more popular. With that in mind I went and dug through a drawer. We've collected, or maybe kept, any number of campaign pins over the years, beginning with Ike. Memory, you know. Here's a few.
The 2000 election, buttons from each party, plus an old 60's/50's republican button. My favorite is the Texas Ranger pin the Bush campaign gave/sold in 2000. Big donors got a fancy one made out of a more valuable metal. We picked up a number of these, gave some away and tucked away the rest.
And of course, the 2000 election wouldn't be complete without something from the Florida recount. We have a number of buttons and things from that.
Time to get all this stuff in one place.
