    Spectacular, Virtually Mint, Eugene V. Debs Cabinet Photo A fairly youthful image of the great Socialist war horse, probably dating from the period of his initial rise to national prominence in the mid-1890s. (Debs was included in a set of 7/8" Presidential "hopeful" buttons made in 1896.) Debs ran for President on the Socialist ticket every year from 1900 to 1920 except for 1916, and his campaign items are among the most valued by third-party collectors. We have never seen this item before, and find it very hard to price. Debs postcards, much more widely distributed, sell for $400 to around $2,000, depending on variety. This item is particularly nice because of its gorgeous condition, as cabinet photos are rarely found so choice. 4.25" x 6.5".
