JFK’s Rare Golf Gift to Friends
Price Not Announced
Here is an extraordinarily rare gift personally given by President Kennedy to close friends who donated to the renovation of the White House overseen by Jacqueline Kennedy. It is a book made of the finest leathers. It measures approximately 7 & 1/2″ long X 5 & 1/2″ wide X 2 & 1/2″ deep. On the spine of the book is stamped “TOP GOLF.’ The book opens to show a nesting for 6 Presidential Golf Balls. There are two solid Sterling Silver ball markers from St. Andrews in Scotland. There are no balls accompanying the book. There is a suede cushion that would cover the balls. The cover of the book bears a gold stamped Presidential Seal and President Kennedy’s gold stamped signature. The entire book is in pristine condition. President Kennedy was an avid golfer, and that theme is carried out in this gift. It came from the Peter Lawford Estate, and was given to Lawford by the president.
