George McGovern’s 1974 campaign buttons, bumper Stickers

George McGovern’s 90th birthday party celebrates old-fashioned liberal | Washington Post:

Working for the Nixon campaign in as a 12 year old little Republican, I was enlisted to give out bumper stickers and campaign buttons for the Presidential race to people on the street of my hometown.

Another kid who was working for the opposition traded with me for a set of all the buttons. Both of us were trying to get one of everything -- even the hard to get picture buttons and ones reserved for big spenders.
Nixon was re-elected in 1972

Super Freddy, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel with his bare hands, and who, disguised as Brian Kent, mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice, and corn on the cob."
