    Roosevelt & Johnson: Important and Possibly Unique Campaign Flag for This 1912 "Bull Moose" Ticket. When Teddy Roosevelt threw his hat into the ring to run for a third term on the Progressive Party ticket, his candidacy electrified the populace, and a wide variety of campaign novelties, all cherished by modern collectors, were produced. Included were a number of textiles, mostly in the form of pennants and bandannas. This striking design is the only Roosevelt & Johnson banner in flag format with which we are familiar, and to our knowledge is the only known example of this design. This flag was sold in December of 2005 by a Chicago-area collectibles auction, where it fetched $13,939- an astonishing price for a non-portrait twentieth-century political textile which clearly reflects its importance and collector appeal. For those seeking to own a representative flag from as many campaigns as possible, this may be a literally once in a lifetime opportunity. This particular flag has received what might well be viewed as a high compliment: an Internet vendor who offers a selection of reproduction political flags has chosen this design as one of his offerings! Condition is superb, and with its vibrant red, white, and blue colors and gold accents, it has tremendous display appeal. For strictest accuracy we note a tiny tear above the "T" in "PRESIDENT." 32" x 23".
