Impressive magazine cover from the January 3, 1964 issue of Time’s Man of the Year magazine, 8.25 x 11, featuring a distinguished image of King, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint, “To my Friend, Chuck Stone, With Best Wishes and Warm Personal Regards, Martin Luther King, Jr.” Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 15.5 x 18. In very good condition, with handling wear to borders (most noticeably scuffing to upper left corner); the front cover is still attached to its original back cover by pieces of small clear tape and the back cover has been permanently affixed to the mat. None of this detracts from the overall presentability of this spectacular piece. Only a handful of MLK signed Times covers have been offered for sale, and this particular example is just about the best condition you will find, with the usual obstructing mailing label not present. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
Pre-Bidding is January 15 – January 21. Live Bidding begins at 1 pm ET on January 22.
