This year’s presidential race is one that’s gotten plenty of attention for arguably all the wrong reasons, but no matter which way you lean there’s plenty of potential memorabilia if that’s your type of thing. (Buzz isn’t all that interested but knows some of you inevitably will be, so here we are.)
On the candidates’ official websites. That’s where you’ll find coloring books, ugly sweaters, barbecue gear, caps, shirts, and, of course, plenty of signs and buttons. You’ll find koozies, calendars, all kinds of stuff … and even water bottles. (Some sell anti-competitor items, too, but it might not be who you think taking that approach.) The costs are sometimes low — but often not — and, interestingly, only one of the five candidates, Ted Cruz, sells actual autographed items. (The poster above? That’s $55, though there’s no note of its size.)
Keep reading for a look at some of the odd, creative and readily available items found on official stores for Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich.

The Garbage Pail Kids mocking presidential candidates seems to have caught on this year, and Topps has one more offering for collectors who are getting in on the action.
Now, they’ve gone big.
Previous releases for the two Primary Series GPKs have been card-sized stickers, but four new releases revealed on Friday give fans a jumbo look at the in-pack stickers and a new design heading toward Presidents Day.
What: Decision 2016 trading cards
Box basics: No per-box details released — but six cards per pack, 24 packs per box, 12 boxes per case.

On the heels of a re-release of the politicians cards in this year’s Garbage Pail Kids set for the Iowa Primary, Topps has created a set of new GPK cards only available for a limited time coinciding with the New Hampshire Primary.
Why? People love their politicians — or ripping on them.
