John and Jacqueline Kennedy White House Hallmark Christmas card from 1963

Rare official White House Hallmark Christmas card from 1963, featuring an image of a nativity scene on the front, measuring 4.5 x 6.5 closed, signed inside in bold ink as president, “John Kennedy,” and as first lady, “Jacqueline Kennedy.” The image on the front is identified as “Creche in East Room, The White House,” and a gilt-embossed presidential seal and engraved holiday greeting appear above the signatures, reading: “With our wishes for a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA. The Kennedys ordered a few different variations of these cards from Hallmark, some with “Blessed Christmas” omitted, and most with facsimile signatures; in late November, 500 blank versions arrived at the White House while the Kennedys were on a trip to Florida. After returning on the evening of the 18th, both the president and first lady began to sign the cards at their leisure before leaving for their ill-fated trip to Texas on the 20th. Given the tragic events, none of the 1963 Kennedy Christmas cards were ever sent and these dual-signed cards were relatively unknown, even to the Kennedy Library, until the mid-1980s. According to Mary Evans Seeley’s book Season’s Greetings from the White House, fewer than 30 of the dual-signed cards are known to exist, making them the rarest Christmas format ever signed by a president and first lady. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
