Description


John F. Kennedy’s personally-owned and -worn golf glove. Tan left-handed leather glove was worn by Kennedy during a round of golf at the Hyannis Port Country Club in July of 1962, left there after having a drink, and retrieved by Donald C. Brett, a Secret Service agent. Accompanied by a 2010 handwritten letter of provenance from Brett, which reads, in part: “This golf glove was worn by President John F. Kennedy when he was playing at The Hyannis Port Country Club in July 1962. On his way out after having a drink, he left this glove on the table where I was sitting. He never returned for it.” Expected wear and soiling, and a couple cracks to the fingertips, otherwise fine condition. Despite his love for golfing, Kennedy often avoided being photographed on the links after his election, as he did not want to be compared to Dwight Eisenhower, who played very publicly. As his term continued, he softened his stance and worked hard to improve his game, even asking Arnold Palmer to critique his play. A wonderful relic from one of Kennedy’s great passions. RR Auction COA.
