Pinback button promoting George McGovern for president, 1972.
Pictures the Democratic nominee with singer-songwriter Carole King.
King, one of the most famous recording artists of the early 1970s, has long indentified herself with Democratic politics and politicians. Her endorsement of McGovern in 1972, commemorated by this pinback showing them embracing, was highlighed by a joint benefit concert with James Taylor and Barbara Streisand. An uncommon design with crossover interent that routinely brings $30-40 when it appears at auction. We secured a small group out of an old vendor's inventory in Kentucky.
