(CHARLIE NEIBERGALL | The Associated Press) Mitt Romney
Free offer: 300-lb., Iowa-shaped Romney sign

Looking for that one-of-a-kind Mitt Romney memorabilia to remind you of his historic bid for the presidency?

A Craiglist ad posted recently is offering up a 300-pound steel sign shaped like Iowa and featuring Romney's campaign slogan - and it's free, as long as you're willing to drive to Urbandale, Iowa and haul it away.

Romney, the first Mormon heading a major-party presidential ticket and a politician with deep Utah ties, spoke in front of the large steel sign in Iowa several times as he campaigned there ahead of the state's Republican caucus.

National Journal says that the new landlord of a former Romney campaign office reportedly wants the sign gone.

The Craiglist ad, sadly, has been pulled down now, so it appears either someone jumped on it quickly or Romney snatched it up to grace his living room wall.
