205 pinback buttons of comic sayings [2 cm]. All are in very good condition or better.
This collection, the most extensive known to us, is housed in a high quality black ring binder in its own slipcase. Buttons are arranged in alphabetical order in plastic coin pages. Most have back paper naming Perfection Cigarettes. There are a few for Favorite, Chesterfield, and Obak cigarettes. A few have no back paper. Many slogans are in both the red and blue color scheme with only about ten having visible stain. A number of these are baseball related and include slogans such as: Keep Moving, You Tigers; Oh, You Cubs; Oh, You Red Sox; Right Off The Bat; Slam It-Old Boy, Slam It; Some Hitter; Take A Chance, There's Two Out." A remarkable collection.
