“I Like Ike”

After the shock of realizing my baby boy turned five yesterday, I’m happy to announce he has become my new little collector. Yes! We bought his first item just this week.

After last week when I didn’t buy him a tiny old campaign button he had spotted because I figured he would lose interest in it as soon as we left the store, I couldn’t make him leave it behind this week. Especially after he surprised me and walked right up to the glass case it was displayed in and with a big two dimple grin pointed it out, reading aloud, “I Like Ike”. My son’s name is Isaac, “Ike” for short, so how could I say no to him this time? It was his birthday week after all.

So he is now an owner of a 1952 Dwight D. Eisenhower presidential campaign button. He proudly wore the button the rest of the day.

I know very little about old campaign buttons, but I love history so I’m willing to learn with my Ike.
