JFK campaign postcard
JFK campaign postcard
John F. Kennedy was, without a doubt, one of our country`s finest looking politicians. His campaign team knew this all too well and made sure to feature his smiling face on a wide array of materials. Here is a lovely head-shot photo-postcard of the smiling and formally attired JFK that simply states "Vote for John F. Kennedy / PRESIDENT / Nov. 8, 1960"

JFK campaign poster/World Series scorecard
JFK campaign poster/World Series scorecard
Talk about crossover appeal!! One side of this placard is an invitation to "Follow The Crowds To See and Hear" John F. Kennedy on October 10, 1960 in his bid for the presidency, with a picture of the handsome smiling senator. The other side is an unused world series scorecard [Yankees vs. Pirates] with this catchy slogan: "We beat 'em in September / We'll beat 'em in October / and Kennedy will beat 'em in November". Of course, the Yankees lineup that day included #7-Mantle, #8-Berra, and #9-Maris. An impressive piece.

Holding this little ball in my hand sends shivers down my spine...and I'm not even a golfer!! Game-used golf ball from JFK's days on the links is the first and only one I've ever seen; one side is stamped "John F. Kennedy" and the other "Mr. President". This is truly a piece of political and sports history. Comes with certificate of authenticity.

Lyndon Johnson
Lyndon Johnson "Support Johnson and Civil Rights" pinback
Rare and classic Lyndon Johnson civil rights pinback dating from the 1964 presidential campaign. The red, white and blue pin features a portrait image of Johnson in the center, with the American flag on his left and a donkey (symbol of the Democratic party) on his right. The lettering on the pin reads "Support Johnson and Civil Rights". This is universally regarded as the most significant and desirable of all Lyndon Johnson campaign pins. In addition to the scarcity of this pin, it is also a condition rarity, as this is an easily damaged litho pin, with the design printed directly on metal, as opposed to a celluloid pinback. The passing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 was one of Johnson's signature achievements in office and, as this pin shows, civil rights was still an important issue in the 1964 campaign, especially since his Republican opponent, Senator Barry Goldwater, voted against the historic Civil Rights bill. This is an outstanding example of this classic and rarely seen political pin dating from Johnson's 1964 campaign.

TV Guide magazine - Mrs. John F. Kennedy cover
TV Guide magazine - Mrs. John F. Kennedy cover
It has been said that television was greatly responsible for JFK's victory over Richard Nixon in the 1960 presidential race. The Kennedy-Nixon debates were the first ever to be televised and the American public favored the handsome young Kennedy over the sneering, idiosyncratic Nixon. America also fell in love with their glamorous new first lady. This is her first appearance on the cover of TV Guide with others to follow.

"Profiles In Courage" by John F. Kennedy
In 1954 John F. Kennedy, then the 37-year-old senator from Massachusetts, underwent surgery for injuries sustained in combat during World War II. While convalescing, he did the research for this dramatic best seller about courage and patriotism.

Kennedy graduated from Harvard with honors in 1940. During the war he was twice decorated by the Navy for his part in attacking a Japanese destroyer in the Solomons and for "his courage, endurance and excellent leadership" in towing injured members of the crew of his rammed PT boat to safety.

The son of Joseph P. Kennedy, former ambassador to Great Britain, he was elected to Congress in 1946 at the age of 29, and re-elected in 1948 and 1950. In 1952 he became the third Democrat ever elected to the Senate from Massachusetts, receiving the largest vote polled by a senator in the history of the Commonwealth. He repeated this feat in 1958. In 1960 he was nominated the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party to oppose the Republican nominee, Richard M. Nixon, and on November 8, 1960, he was elected President of the United States. On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

"Profiles In Courage" was first published by Harper & Row in January 1956. The first printing of this 'Pocket Book' edition appeared in January 1957. This 'Pocket Book' 24th printing is highly sought after by collectors as it was published in November 1963, shortly after Kennedy`s death. [paperback, 234 pages, 8 pages of photographic illustrations, original price 50 cents]
