Here is one of the rarest and most valuable items of JFK’s Presidential Memorabilia. It is a large 1961 Christmas Card from the Kennedy’s first year in the White House. It features a photograph by White House Photographer Cecil Stoughton. This photograph was a favorite of Jacqueline Kennedy, and she made the decision to feature it on the Christmas Card. The card measures approximately 14 X 17 inches, and is in pristine condition. It has been carefully stored for over 40 years. The inscription at the bottom of the card reads “With our appreciation and best wishes for a happy Christmas.” It carries the printed signatures of John Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy, and the year 1961. The maker of the card is Hallmark, and that is printed on the back of the card. Very few of the large cards were made, and they are seldom available. This is a must have for the serious Collector of JFK Presidential Memorabilia.  This card came from the Estate of Peter Lawford, who was married to JFK’s sister Pat, and was a close personal friend and confidant of the President.
