The New Frontier Man of the Year/Astronaut John Glenn — 1962 button heralding Glenn’s orbits around the Earth.
A Man Came Out of the West/Hart — Gary Hart sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 1984.
Welcome Back to Earth, Glenn — see button #1
It’s Time to Clean Out the Barn/Perot for President 1992 — Ross Perot ran as an independent, capturing 19% of the vote.
