In 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt was taken on a hunting trip and presented with an opportunity to shoot a restrained bear. Viewing this as unsportsmanlike, Theodore refused. The resulting news coverage of the event painted the president in a very favorable light.

Part of that news coverage was Clifford Berryman's famous political cartoon that depicted the event. This cartoon resulted in the teddy bear, a plush toy named after the president. Roosevelt's face on this fine pewter pin is based on Berryman's cartoon depiction.

This pin is a great way to celebrate Teddy's presidency, the almost six-decade long career of political cartoonist Clifford Berryman, and the power of media to shape public image.
