John F. Kennedy original presidential campaign poster
A John F. Kennedy original presidential campaign poster is a rare piece of political memorabilia.
John F. Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States, the youngest in history, and today remains an American political and cultural icon.
Kennedy’s youthful good looks and the rise of television as a political campaign tool helped him capture the public’s imagination, and his close links and friendships with figures such as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe placed him in the public eye as a celebrity as well as the President.
His assassination in 1963 cemented his place in U.S history, and theories about his death along with his alleged affairs and links to organized crime have maintained the fascination with his life almost 50 after his death.
This large poster measures 27” by 41”, and features a black and white image of Kennedy below the slogan “Kennedy for President” and above the phrase “Leadership for the 60’s”.
This is an original poster printed during Kennedy’s successful Presidential Campaign in 1960, in which he first defeated Democratic rivals Hubert Humphrey and Lyndon B. Johnson to gain the nomination, then Richard Nixon in the race for the White House.
This rare piece of political memorabilia is offered for sale by Paul Fraser Collectibles, a company which deals in high-end collectibles and unique pieces of history.
It is currently priced at £4,000.
