Lot 113: Sesame Street children's coloring and puzzle booklet entitled 'Hip Hip Hooray for Dot to Dots, Mazes, and More,' 32 pages, 8 x 10.25, signed on the front cover in black felt tip, "Yes we can! Barack Obama." In fine condition, with a few mild creases to the cover, some irregular ink adhesion to signature, and a a PSA/DNA label affixed to the lower corner. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. Signed at a campaign event in Ohio on October 17, 2012, and accompanied by color copies of the event ticket and an image of Obama giving an address. This unusual format relates to the famous campaign controversy that began earlier in October when President Obama's Republican challenger Mitt Romney said he would defund PBS, home to the classic TV show. This evolved into the catchy 'killing Big Bird' trope used to criticize Romney throughout the rest of the campaign.
