Brown, Jerry [Edmund Gerald Brown Jr., 1938 - ]. [Bumper Sticker] It's Time to Call On JERRY BROWN for President 1-800-426-1112. [1992?].
Bumper sticker advertising the toll-free number to call for information about candidate Jerry Brown. He was attempting a grassroots campaign for the Democratic Party Nomination against Bill Clinton. 9-1/2" x 3-1/4". Faint staining. Very Good condition
Toll-free numbers were first used in 1967. They were initially quite expensive but became much more popular with the breakup of AT&T and the ability of many companies to offer competitive services. This number was the advertising cornerstone of Brown's largely grassroots 1992 campaign; pictures can still be found of him promoting this number. In 2013, an intrepid reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle actually called the number, found it still in service, left a message and actually got a response. (https://blog.sfgate.com/thebigevent/2013/10/02/breaking-jerry-browns-1-800-presidential-hotline-still-works/). At this writing, the number has been reassigned (8/2020). There were many different advertisements promoting this number, but we were unable to locate another copy of this specific item.
