All the Presidents’ Memorabilia
Jordan M. Wright’s collection of political memorabilia is unquestionably prodigious.

Harding logo that was used to attract newly enfranchised female voters.

    He wrote one autograph per meeting an colletor. More is simply not possible to get from a current World Champion. But never the less he was very kind and in a good mood.
