Chicago Welcomes the Pope Buttons

Pope Pin-backs from 1979

There’s a collection of nine vintage Pope buttons for sale on Craigs List Illinois!  According to the post, the commemorative pin-backs range in size from 2.5-inches to 5-inches in diameter.  Since the Pope visited Chicago in 1979, it’s possible these were produced by Parisian Novelty on the south-side.  There’s a ton of papal buttons on eBay too.

The buttons must be pope-ular.
