News-Antique.com - Nov 18,2011 - Did you know that, after President John F Kennedy's assassination in 1963, some "posthumous" autographs were released? And that only 30 of them are known to exist?
Given the ongoing legacy of JFK, and his status as arguably the best-loved 20th century US President, such autographs are especially coveted on today's collectibles markets.
The aura surrounding JFK's Presidency is perhaps the strongest in U.S political history. No figure so dramatically encapsulates both sides of the American dream, from the highest aspirations of office to the dark underbelly of corruption and scandal.
Just one of many reasons why Paul Fraser Collectibles is especially excited to have acquired one of these exceptionally rare autographs...
John F Kennedy and his wife Jackie are known to have co-signed 15 Christmas cards and 15 New Year cards, prior to his assassination on November 22.
This example was "For Miss Shaw - with our deepest appreciation and affection" alongside the date "Christmas 1963" and a reproduction print from a lithograph of 'Mill's Colossal Equestrian Statue of General Jackson' near the White House.
