In the early 1970s the American Oil Comapany created a Sweepstakes entitled "Hats Off To The Past". There were 38 different cards given out at gas stations with the purchase of gasoline. The top part of the cards described the 3 big prizes as following: "Model A" Ford - a replica of that great car!; Player Piano - and what fun you'll have!; Gasoline Awards! You would then choose one of the hats to erase the silver spot, revealing your possible prize and then fill out the information on back and deposit it into the entry box.

The bottom portion of the card paid a tribute to political campaigns of the past with a special campaign button and a small blurb about that specific campaign. (Campaign buttons were first used in 1896.) These 1972 reproduction buttons are quite charming.

This listing is for a set of 6 different campaign buttons, but may not be for the exact ones pictured. The condition of these cards/buttons varies from fair to great condition. Some may have rust on the pin, rust stains on the paper, some bends or bent corners, or scratches on button.

Here is a list of the 6 Campaign buttons included with the original campaign year:
Smith for President (Alfred E. Smith) 1928
A Choice for a Change, Goldwater/Miller (Barry Goldwater) 1964
Truman was Screwy to Build A Porch for Dewey (Thomas E. Dewey) 1948
I'm For Free Silver High Admiral Cigarette (William Jennings Bryan) 1896
William Howard Taft 1908
Stevenson/Kefauver (Adlai E. Stevenson & Estes Kefauver) 1956

These would be great for the ultimate button collector, Presidential fanatic or political collector. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.
