6. The hippest campaign button ever
Why it's great: See the way the 7 and the 3 are slightly askew? That's because it was the Seventies, baby. You could run for mayor and not be tied into the old, outdated rules of your old man's typography.
Why it isn't: While Fred Hofheinz did win two terms as mayor, he eventually pled guilty to bribing Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards in 2000. In Hofheinz' defense, this didn't exactly put him in exclusive company.
Current price: $4

5. The 1976 State Democratic Convention Program
Why it's great: Celebrate a time when the convention of the Texas Democratic Party actually meant something.
Why it's not: The description notes "Insides are mainly concerned with rules of the party."
Current price: $14.95

4. Johnson Space Center: The so-called "nerve center" of America's aerospace development
Why it's great: If the insides keep the Logan's Run space-age font, we're in.
Why it's not: Sub-head seems to imply that JSC is somehow not the nerve center for America's space program. We suspect a Florida publisher.
Current price: $8
