Obama, Barack. Campaign Poster, Signed
Barack Obama Signs a 2004 Senate Campaign Poster
Hours: Tues - Sat
Barack Obama signature on Campaign Poster.
This white and blue campaign poster is from his 2004 campaign for Illinois Senator. Signed “Barack Obama” it features a headshot of then candidate Barack Obama.
At the start of the campaign, 15 people were seeking the Senate seat vacated by Republican incumbent Peter Fitzgerald. It was the first U.S. Senate campaign where both candidates were African American. Obama’s 43% margin was the highest in any Illinois U.S. Senate elections. The rest, as they say, is history.
Printed in thin, coated paper; large vertical crease down center-does not impede signature, minor corner fold, overall minor wrinkling. Else very good to excellent. Bright!
