Two new “stickerettes”

I’ve acquired two new unused stickerettes for my collection and sticker exhibition.  The smaller stickerette is a real favorite.  NYU has one, too.  It measures 3 1/4 x 2 3/8 inches, and the text reads: “The capitalist’s [heart] is in his pocketbook, And he uses the [club] Over you so he can wear [diamonds].  By organizing right, we can give him a [spade] With which to earn an honest living.”

The second stickerette measures 6 x 6 inches and is the largest and rarest I’ve ever come across.  It was issued by the S.F. (San Francisco) Trades Union Promotional League in 1927, and the text reads “Labor Unionism, Labor Omnia Vincit.  The World’s Greatest Promoter of Human Justice.  Let us make it ever greater.  Public Schools.  Right of the Ballot.  Workers Compensation Legislation.  Health and Safety Legislation.  Child Labor Laws.  Eight Hour Day.”

Both stickerettes are printed on a very lightweight cream paper with a gummed backing.  I would love to find a photograph of stickerettes being used back in the day!
