President Roosevelt Personal Matchbook 

FDR's Personal matchbook. This is the type he actually used in The White House. According to the FDR Library's website FDR designed the sail boat logo with his initials in the sails himself.  This is probably the most famous of all the FDR matchbooks as this is the matchbook that the FDR library choice to reproduce for themselves.

You can now see them displayed at the Truman Library's replica of President Truman's Oval Office. Now you can own a piece of history that not only might have been used by both President Truman and President Eisenhower and their guests.
