PRESIDENT OF THE APIC
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.
The APIC celebrates its 75 th Anniversary in 2020 and we will be gathering in Nashville, TN next summer for the 2021 American Political Items Collectors National Convention, our largest hobby event. Please check out the Calendar section on the link above for a list of other shows that are held around the country throughout the year.
Enjoy visiting the site. Stay safe and healthy.
President, American Political Items Collectors
