Albert Feldstein's two older brothers liked Ike. And so did the younger Feldstein, when he decided their "I Like Ike" presidential campaign buttons would start his memorabilia collection. Feldstein, 59, of LaVale, Md., says his collection of campaign buttons has grown to nearly 6,000 items, including those "I Like Ike" buttons supporting Dwight D. Eisenhower's 1952 bid for presidency.
