    Description

    Teddy Roosevelt 1904 Campaign Cartoon Poster by Homer Davenport Homer Davenport was one of the most important political cartoonists of his day, working mostly for William Randolph Hearst. In 1904, he was at the rival New York Evening Mail though, and that's where this political cartoon was first published. It pictures a dignified and serious Uncle Sam figure patting Teddy Roosevelt on the back and saying "He's Good Enough For Me!" This is an original union-printed poster of this image used by Roosevelt in his successful 1904 campaign for re-election. Fine condition save for one small corner tear affecting nothing, 11" x 16.5" in size. There is a rare but familiar 3.5" button with this same design, but this is the first time we've encountered it in poster format.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
