Hello Everyone,

Welcome to the website of the American Political Items Collectors (APIC). The APIC has been the premier hobby organization in the country since 1945 for those of us who collect and preserve the items that tell the story of our colorful and vibrant history. Our members collect a variety of materials including campaign buttons, paper items, textiles, jewelry, and Three-dimensional items, such as vintage campaign torches and other political novelties.

We invite you to become a member of the APIC. Membership includes a monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine, The Keynoter. Membership helps you connect with fellow collectors around the country who share the passion to “hold history in your hand.” They can provide invaluable knowledge to help you build your collections.

Enjoy visiting the site. Stay safe and healthy.

Cary Jung

President, American Political Items Collectors



JFK_LBJ_Poster.jpg The APIC has several regularly scheduled publications that you will receive as part of your membership. The Keynoter is a quarterly color publication full of both interesting articles and images of campaign collectibles. Also, a monthly newsletter is printed and included in the Political Bandwagon, a newspaper format publication that also contains articles, images, advertisements, news, and highlight from auctions of political campaign memorabilia. A roster is available, both on the web and in print, of all members in the organization.

 In addition to regular memberships, the APIC offers youth, family and international memberships. A regular membership for someone in the US only costs $42.00 US per year. Multi-year memberships are also available.
