Description

The presented lot contains a total of fifteen pieces from the 1950s and 1960s featuring and commemorating Bobby, Jackie and the beloved John F. Kennedy. The pieces featuring John include a Kennedy For Pres. 6x6 badge shaped photo-transfer (NM) and 1 button, 1962 John F. Kennedy Coloring Book (10x13, unused, NM), The Washington Post (11/23/63) "President Kennedy Shot Dead", The Washington Daily News (11/23/63) "It was Only Yesterday" and The Evening Star (11/23/63) "Pres. Johnson Takes Over, Kennedy Lies in White House". The pieces featuring Robert Kennedy are an original The Evening Star (6/5/68) "Kennedy Extremely Critical" with a candid image of a wounded Robert Kennedy on the front cover, The Evening Star (6/6/68) "Robert F. Kennedy Dies" and a Kennedy For Pres. In '68 3-1/2 button. The highlight piece in the lot, however, is likely "The First Lady Paper Doll" by Magic Wand. The game is complete with the 25 tall Jackie stand-up doll (EX-MT), Magic Wand, directions, box (31x12, VG), (20) pieces of loose clothing and two sheets of uncut clothing. The seldom seen game is in tremendous condition given the sensitivity of the paper doll and clothing. The lot also contains a pair of period plastic Jackie and John masks in (NM) condition, 1962 "The Exciting Game of the Kennedy's" with game-pieces and board in EX-MT shape, seemingly complete with a repaired box, LIFE (6/20/53) with John and Jackie cover (label, VG-EX) and a standard brick that reads Kennedy on one side. A superb lot for the Kennedy family enthusiasts.
