    56. [Paul Whiteman trademark] (1975).

    Art by Leslie Cabarga. Paul Whiteman was a very popular big band leader in the 1930s. His distinctive 78 rpm record labels featured this distinctive caricature of his pudgy, mustachioed face. Cabarga (best known for his definitive renderings of Betty Boop) is also a musician and a published expert on '30s trademarks, which explains his fascination on several levels for this image. This button, not surprisingly, didn't sell well in Kitchen Sink's market, where the only 78 rpm records most of its long-haired customers ever saw was Crumb's brief Ordinary Record revival. But more lately old record collectors have discovered it.

    2.25 inch diameter. $5.00

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
