No matter you’re partly politics or whom you decide to vote for in the November election for President of the United States, history will be made. If we elect the Obama and Biden ticket to be President of the United States, we will have elected the first black to be President. If we elect the McCain and Palin ticket, then we will have elected the first woman as Vice President of the United States. No other election has had this opportunity. What does this have to do with antiques and collectibles you ask? Memorabilia of course!
You should be stocking up on the memorabilia from this campaign, much of it is free for the taking from the politicians and their campaign headquarters themselves. Some you may have to buy, but the bottom line is that memorabilia from this election should appreciate in value because of its historical significance. Search on eBay for the candidates and look at the completed transactions. Many of the items have already appreciated and the election is not over. A lot of other memorabilia has gone for a lot of money and it doesn’t even have the significance of what this election brings.
John Clark a political memorabilia collector from Tallahassee, Florida once purchased a 1924 political button for $11,000. Mr. Clark owns one of the largest political memorabilia collections in the United States and in a recent article in FloridaTrend.com, he stated, “collectors will go to about any great length to get an item.” So which button drew Mr. Clark’s interest so much that he was willing to pay $11,000? A 1924 John W. Davis button. Who you ask? Exactly my point, there is no greater significance than the memorabilia of this election. So get out there and stock up, if not for you, then save it for your grandchildren.
