This is a classic colorful button featuring an elephant – Uncle Sam’s White Elephant – standing on a football in front of goalposts, his feet “bound” by trusts. This is supposed to represent Roosevelt and the Republican party – or, Grand Old Pirates – holding down the elephant with their support of trusts. There is a lot of writing and symbolism on this button, and it is a high valued collector favorite.
