Collectible Political Campaign “Button” Fetches $15,100… Selling on eBay


Bids for a rare (pin-back) political campaign button recently skyrocketed to $15,100 while selling on eBay. The button was from the 1920 Democratic campaign, where Franklin D. Roosevelt was selected as a running mate (Vice President) on the ticket headed by Ohio Governor James M. Cox.

The button, found by the seller at an estate sale, was posted on eBay with an opening bid of only $10. It immediately attracted attention and ignited a bidding war among collectors. Seven days later the bidding had escalated to the final price of $15,100.

According to James Massey, publisher of, a website which provides free list and photos of top selling eBay items. “It’s always amazing, but not all that surprising when something rare like this sells for an extraordinary price. It makes one think twice about putting any odd item they may have gotten from grandma or grandpa in a yard sale.”
