Item 71 - John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Robert F. Kennedy Catalog 560 (Jul 2019)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $10,067.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Incredibly rare 4 x 2.25 admission ticket for a speech made by Senator John F. Kennedy at the Maxwell House Hotel in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, on February 24, 1959, signed in ballpoint, "John Kennedy," "Jacqueline Kennedy," and "Robert F. Kennedy." The ticket is affixed to a 7.75 x 6 cardstock mount. In very good to fine condition, with light overall unobtrusive creasing.

In the late winter of 1959, Senator Kennedy spoke at a sold out Democratic party banquet at the Maxwell House Hotel in downtown Nashville. Kennedy's announcement to run for president in January 1960—nearly a year from this event—was hardly a surprise to party insiders who had observed the dapper Bay State senator during his three years of 'informal campaigning.' As such, 1959 proved a decidedly hectic year for JFK, who held public events on a daily basis, often multiple times a day. After fashioning each oration to the particular host city or state, Kennedy faithfully expounded on four major issues—the well-being of senior citizens, the urgent call for labor management reform, the encroachment of communism and the Soviet Union, and the need for effective and innovative ideas from the American public. A magnificent keepsake that represents the premiere instance in which we have offered an item signed by John, Jackie, and Robert Kennedy.
