John and Jacqueline Kennedy Signed 1963 holiday card

26 Sep

Exceedingly rare official Hallmark card issued during the 1963 holiday season, 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 best wishes for a Happy New Year.” In fine condition. Two variations of this holiday card were ordered, the other additionally wishing a ‘Blessed Christmas’ in the printed sentiment. Kennedy returned to Washington on the evening of November 18, 1963, from a trip to Florida. Sometime between his return and the evening of the 20th, both the president and first lady began to sign the cards at their leisure, but none were ever sent. These dual-signed cards were relatively unknown, even to the Kennedy Library, until the mid-1980s. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
