Nice collection of ten items, first a matte-finish 6.75 x 8.75 photo of a painting of Rickenbacker, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To my dear friend, ‘Bill Westlake,’ as always, Eddie Rickenbacker, 1943”; and nine TLSs signed “Eddie,” totaling eleven pages, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, dated from 1947 to 1962. One from 1947, in part: “Today, instead of tranquility we have turmoil, not only at home, but among peoples of the world. Turmoil, resulting from the suffering and strife of World War II brought about by the selfishness and greed of a few…Unless we in America and the peoples of the world rededicate ourselves to the full appreciation that progress and prosperity can only continue by producing an honest day’s labor for an honest day’s pay, we cannot help but return to the slavery of the dark ages with the consequent misery for mankind as a whole.” Another from 1960, in part: “Now that the shouting and the fireworks that covered one of the most bitterly contested presidential campaigns in the history of America, are behind us, I sit here on this Thanksgiving Day trying to remember the many good things for which my family and I are thankful…As I think of the ‘cold’ war, and the hearts that are bleeding for many peoples around the world, I realize that we Americans, above all other peoples, have been blessed with freedoms, opportunities and the individual dignity of man.” Photo is matted to an overall size of 12 x 14. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by five original mailing envelopes. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
