Description

    Wendell Willkie: Classic "Out at Third" Cartoon Design. Certainly the most valuable Willkie pinback, and one of the most sought after of all pinback button varieties. Willkie and FDR are dressed as baseball players, and Willkie is shown tagging FDR out as he slides into third base (a reference to Roosevelt's 1940 third term candidacy). A similar design in the same 1ΒΌ" size also exists, but the features are much more generic, whereas Willkie and FDR are clearly recognizable here. Only perhaps half-dozen examples are known. Superb condition; it is hard to imagine that a superior example could exist.
