This is an incredible collection of John F Kennedy related items. There is a full readable signature from when he was a Congressman or a Senator, a small framed lock of his hair with provenance, and a very scarce, if not unique unused "Honored Guest" ticket with the "stub attached", to his "Presidential Inauguration in 1960". These were only given out as comps to luminaries like, Kings, Queens, and other Heads of state.
The blue purchased general admission grandstand tickets you may find here and there are common in comparison, though good luck finding even one of those intact.
This platinum "Honored Guest" ticket is very scarce! Possibly the only one known to exist with the stub intact. It is printed on both sides, but I chose not to give too much info here to avoid those looking to forge reprints off this sole original example.
I should mention that the Scotch tape residue is only on the outer plastic sleeve. The Autograph Book Leaf itself shows its age, but remains in very nice condition.
The signature is very cool in itself, but relatively common. He was a Politician for a long time. The Ticket is the main item of value here. Arguably one of the single most significant and valuable unused tickets in existence! A center piece in anyone's collection of vintage tickets! I would frame this with a Presidential era signature which looks far different from this.
Also included is a very rare original LP of his most famous speeches, including his inaugural address. Documents shown are for the hair lock. The Signature is authentic, but has no LOA so have your experts take a look before bidding. Being an autograph and a consignment, winning bidder has a full 30 calendar days to have these items checked out to your satisfaction. Cool enough?
