Description


Set of five presidential golf balls presented in a special green and brown leather case resembling a book, gilt stamped on the front with the presidential seal and Kennedy’s facsimile signature. The spine of the case reads, “Top Golf,” and its interior is lined with supple leather and suede padding. The most important golf ball, marked “U. S. Royal 2 Special,” is of a simple style, with one side featuring the text “Mr. President” in plain type; this ball, not a part of the original set, is said to have been hit by President Kennedy, in the presence of White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Three of the golf balls are branded “Spalding 3” and feature blue images of the presidential seal on one side and Kennedy’s facsimile signature on the other side. The fifth golf ball is essentially identical, but marked “Spalding 4.” In overall fine condition, with some light marks and toning to a few golf balls. These specially made presidential sets were only presented to a select few. RR Auction COA.
