Lot 114: Extremely rare color glossy 10 x 8 photo of Presidents Jimmy Carter, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush at the dedication of the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in 2004, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "To Cory—Best wishes, Bill Clinton," "To Cory, Best wishes, G. W. Bush," "George Bush 41," and "J. Carter." A somewhat noticeable crease to the lower right corner and a trivial brush to Clinton's signature, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a card from the Bush White House imprinted, "With the Compliments of The President." This was originally obtained by an employee of Governor Mike Huckabee's office who was able to obtain the signatures through connections there; when the original recipient dropped the photo off at the White House to be signed in 2007, Karl Rove's assistant told him that it was the only photo from the opening that they had been asked to sign. This is at the very least an exceedingly rare fully signed photo from the event, if not entirely one-of-a-kind.
