Description

Rare official photograph signed by JFK Jr. as a child and adult

Two historic items: a Cecil Stoughton photograph of young John Jr. with a scribble signature of John Jr. as a 2 year old, later inscribed to Mr. Stoughton from John Kennedy Jr. as an adult, "To Mr. Stoughton, Now I can sign my name, Best, John Kennedy." The charming portrait of young Kennedy showing his first tooth out smile playing with a toy helicopter and a picture of Marine One in the White House. Photo taken by first official White House photographer, Cecil W. Stoughton, who asked the boy to sign his name and hence the below scribble. Stoughton then helped the boy write "John." Some time in the 1990s, Stoughton and John Jr. found themselves at the same table at a NASA event in Florida. Stoughton asked John Jr. to re-inscribe this photo which he graciously did: "To Mr. Stoughton, Now I can sign my name, Best, John Kennedy." Stamped on back by Stoughton. Unique piece from John Jr. who tragically died a few years after signing this photograph. Also includes an original vintage glossy wire service photograph of John Jr. saluting his father during the funeral procession on November 25, 1963.

The adult signature ispre-certified PSA/DNA.
