John F. Kennedy Signed Christmas Card
Item Details
Description
Highly desirable official White House Christmas/New Year's card from 1961 featuring "Season's Greetings" and an embossed presidential seal on the front, 5.75 x 6.75, signed inside in fountain pen, "John Kennedy." The card also bears a preprinted facsimile signature of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and a printed greeting: "With best wishes for a very Happy New Year." In fine condition, with a couple of light stains to the front of the card.
These cards were produced for the Kennedys by Hallmark at the request of Mrs. Kennedy's social secretary. According to Mary Evans Seeley’s Season’s Greetings from the White House, only 100 cards like this one were ordered without a reference to Christmas, in order to show sensitivity to recipients of other religions; most of the cards were printed with a different greeting inside ('The President and Mrs. Kennedy wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year'). A desirable New Year's remembrance from President Kennedy's first Christmas in the White House.
