The Oddball, aka "SPUTNIK"

One of my favorite buttons is this apple juice oddball with seven chrome knobs poking out of its Bakelite base. What a weirdo! The knobs are a little scuffed and rusty, but I love this thing with all of its flaws. Old buttons are supposed to be flawed and this one probably goes back to the 1930's or early 40's. It's a bizarre button and I've nicknamed it "Sputnik" on account of its outer- spacey vibe.
