Valley collector shows off over 200 years worth of political items
GILBERT, Ariz. -
At an age when kids start collecting baseball cards, one valley collector became enamored with political memorablila.
Ron Puechner started collecting political items when he was just 8-years-old. One of his older brothers brought him political stickers and buttons from the 1972 Nixon/McGovern campaign he was working on and he's been collecting ever since.
Forty years later, Puechner's collection has grown to about 50,000 items; some date back to Washington's days.
FOX 10's Kristin Anderson takes a look at Puechner's favorite items.
