    97. 40th Bombardment Group (1982).

    Kitchen Sink Press' longtime art director Peter Poplaski's father was a genuine World War II hero of the Pacific theatre. When Stanley Poplaski would travel to Air Force conventions and meet fellow veterans, he was intrigued by their exchange of insignia souvenirs. Returning from one, he asked his artistic son to recreate the emblems from the Air Force units he was in or affiliated with. Denis Kitchen in turn loyally agreed to include the set of four as part of a short button sheet run. They are numbered on the respective rims and are part of the official KSP button run, inexplicable as they may seem next to Zippy the Pinhead and Couch Tomatoes. They find their true audience via eBay military categories, but we include them here for KSP (or Poplaski) completists.

    2.25 inch diameter. $2.50

    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.
