John F Kennedy Cards

 These John F Kennedy cards were found in a scrapbook amongst other abandoned items and trash in a house I rented a few years back.

I kept them for a while but eventually auctioned them on Ebay. Faded, with ragged edges and tape marks these collectable John F Kennedy cards were far from pristine. For a price of $3.00 including shipping I made a collector very happy.

The cards were published in the 1960's by Topps which sold both sport and non sport cards in packets of bubble gum. The five shown here were part of a series of 77.

These include:

N0. 9 - A photo of the Kennedy family when JFK was a boy.

NO. 43 - President Kennedy and the First Lady on an evening out.

N0. 50 - JFK laughing at a news conference.

NO. 56 - President Kennedy and First Lady in profile watching an event on the South Lawn of The White House.

NO. 66 - John F. Kennedy and his college football team.

These 1960's collectible John F Kennedy T.C.G. cards by Topps are just another example of items which pass through the markets discarded by one person, but treasured by another.
