  • 1881 Rare James Garfield Signed Navy Commission Document

    Original signed documents from the term of James Garfield as President of the United States, represent one of the most elusive and rare presidential documents. Why? Because Garfield was only in office for less than four months when he was assassinated.

    We are privileged to have recently acquired one of these fine document signed by President Garfield during his short term as President. It is a commission document appointing James "Commodore" Bull as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy, April 22nd, 1881. Coincidentally, Garfield was well a well known supporter of the Navy and had pledged to rebuild the Navy which had fallen into disrepair since the end of the Civil war.

    It is in exceptionally find condition and priced below the current market value.

  • Our Presidential Seal Plaque Featured in Abraham Lincoln Exhibit

    In the past forty years in the Political Memorabilia business we thought we'd seen just about every possible use for our presidential items. We've sold presidential memorabilia items to politicians, actors, singers, movie producers and more. But we can honestly say this is the first time one of our items was used as a prop in a funeral directors convention!

    When Don O'Guinn of the O'Guinn Family Funeral Homes in Clio, Michigan called he was looking for something special for an exhibit he had planned. We were happy to help. He wound up ordering a 24" mahogany presidential seal from us. But until Mr. O'Guinn was kind enough to send us these photos we had no idea what the intended use was. Turns out MR. O'Guinn put together a special exhibit entitled "Lincoln Remembrance Service" at this year's National Funeral Directors Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    The display included many Abraham Lincoln items including our mahogany presidential seal and a a full wax figure of the president that that he created along with a reproduction of President Lincoln's coffin!

    Our special thanks to Don for sharing the photos!


  • Political Merchandise Dealer Picks Winners & Losers From 1st Democratic Debate

    Keeping abreast of 2016 campaign trends is particularly important to us since it can often mean the difference between success and failure in the political merchandise and collectibles business.

    Calculate wrong and you can wind up with thousands of campaign bumper stickers and buttons for candidates that either never made it thru the primaries or never made it to the alter in Washington, D.C. (Anyone want to buy the 3,215 bumper stickers we still have left over from the McCain campaign?!). Guess wrong in the other direction and you find yourself out of inventory just when a candidate gets "hot".

    So we watched with great interest when the Democratic candidates for President took the stage last night in Las Vegas, Nevada for the first 2016 Democratic debate. Would we find ourselves licking our wounds with thousands of Hillary Clinton buttons we still have in stock?

    Based on the orders and requests we have received for democratic candidate items since the conclusion of the Democratic debate, we can say the following:
    1. We're very glad we have a lot of Hillary Clinton merchandise in stock
    2. We're glad we stocked up on Bernie Sanders merchandise
    3. We wish we had more Martin O'Malley merchandise
    4. We're glad we don't have many Jim Webb items left to sell
    5. We wonder why in the world we ever carried Lincoln Chafee items
    6. We wish we had thought to carry Anderson Cooper buttons


  • The Dilemma of A Political Merchandise Dealer

    Every day we turn on the news stations hoping for a direction - or the hint of a direction. As one of the country's leading political memorabilia dealers and a source for many 2016 campaign buttons, posters and merchandise, we're hoping for directional hints. Should we stock up on more Bernie Sanders buttons? Sell off our remaining stock of Scott Walker posters? Hope that the voters rediscover Jeb Bush so we're not stuck with 2,000 Jeb! campaign buttons like we were with Mitt Romney in 2012?

    Such is the life of a political collectibles and merchandise dealer. Its like predicting the stock market. Literally. Stocking up on the merchandise of a candidate on Monday only to discover that he announces he's dropping out of the race on Thursday, can be incredibly frustrating. Not to mention the cost of stocking up on over sixteen different Republican candidates.

    But then again today's campaign merchandise is tomorrow's collectibles....right?

  • John F. Kennedy Library Launches New "Taking A Stand" Initiative

    Every year, the John F. Kennedy Library foundation puts out our call for nominees for the Profile in Courage Award, where they receive the names of dozens of ordinary Americans across the country who have put their livelihoods at risk and their lives on hold to do what is right for their communities.

    These are unquestionably courageous men and women of conscience, but because the Profile in Courage Award solely honors those in public office, they have never before had the opportunity to recognize their contributions.

    Today, the library

    Small acts of political courage happen every day across the United States. Students, parents, and teachers work to stop bullying in schools. Community members take stands for free speech. Protesters march to end sexual assault and gun violence.

    If you know a friend, neighbor, colleague, or even a stranger who has taken a stand that has benefited your community -- even though it may have been unpopular at first -- then share their story here.

  • Political Collectors Pick Bush, Trump & Rubio... so far!

    As of August 26, 2015 Jeb Bush leads the field of candidates for the Republican nomination for President, with Donald Trump and Marco Rubio not far behind.

    "Political collectors and historians have been pretty darn good in predicting elections in the past", explains Lori Ferber, Ppoll-resultsresident of Lori Ferber Collectibles, one of the leading dealers in political memorabilia in the country.

    So far over 1,400 people have voted on her political collectibles website at, and Jeb Bush leads all the Republican candidates with 26.64% votes vs. Donald Trump with 21.33% and Marco Rubio with 14.25%.

    However, Ferber points out that Donald Trump was a late entry in the online poll and he has improved from just 9% of the vote three weeks ago to 22.33% as of August 26, 2015.

  • What The Heck Do You Do With 140,000 Buttons!

    We were recently presented with an interesting dilemma. We were contacted by a company that had 140,000 campaign buttons - mostly from the campaigns of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Were there duplicates? You bet! In fact one button has 35,000 duplicates of the same button!

    Never one to back down from a challenge and since we're known for helping collectors and dealers sell off collections and accumulations of thousands of campaign buttons, posters, bumper stickers and more we took on the challenge.

    The first person we contacted said "Who in the heck will buy 140,000 relatively common political buttons -especially 35,000 of the same one!

    But with a lot effort and a lot of phone calls and emails to our contacts around the country we found a new home for the massive collection of over 200 boxes. In fact, the hoard was so large a storage unit had to be rented to store everything.

    So the moral of the story is; if you have a collection, estate accumulation, dealers stock that you are looking to sell give us a call. If its not right for us we'll try our best to find the right buyer for it.
