Harry S. Truman twice-signed ‘Dewey Defeats Truman’ press photo

Historic and scarce matte-finish 9.75 x 8 UPI News photo of Truman holding the front page of the November 3, 1948, Chicago Tribune with its headline proclaiming “Dewey Defeats Truman,” signed and inscribed in black ink along Truman’s sleeve, and signed again in black ink on the newspaper. A news caption is affixed to the reverse. In very good condition, with moderate contrast to the light signature and inscription across Truman’s arm, light silvering to edges, Truman’s other signature a bit light, but completely legible, and a few mild bends and ripples. Arguably one of the most recognizable and memorable images of any presidential election, highly sought after by collectors and especially interesting in this twice-signed form. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.

RR Auction Harry S.Truman Signed FDC + Rare Chicago Daily Tribune

RR Auction Harry s Truman

RR Auction Harry S Truman

FDC, with a cachet honoring the election of the first governor of Puerto Rico, signed in black ink by Truman; and an ultra-rare complete edition of the Chicago Daily Tribune of November 3, 1948 featuring the banner headline “Dewey Defeats Truman.” When the decision to print this paper was made, returns were coming in very slowly and time was running out before the deadline for the edition. The Tribune staff, based on the early returns, decided Dewey would be the next President. After the newspaper was delivered to the street, more returns came in and showed that Truman would be the ultimate winner and be reelected as President. The already delivered ‘error’ newspapers were gathered for return by staff members sent out to pick them up from newsstands and homes in the Chicago area. Original editions of this newspaper are becoming increasingly scarce. In fine condition, with expected uniform mild toning to paper as well as a couple of small edge tears. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
