PRESIDENTS THEODORE ROOSEVELT, HARRY TRUMAN and JOHN F. KENNEDY All three signed this postcard featuring a 45-star American flag, postmarked during TR's Presidency. Roosevelt and Kennedy almost certainly signed as President. Postcard signed: "T Roosevelt", "Harry Truman", "John Kennedy", 3½x5½. Postcard bearing on verso a US flag with 45 stars, outlined in gold glitter, signed there by all three. Addressed on verso by an unknown hand to Miss Louise Herbst, 2308 Bryant Street, City, postmarked San Francisco, California, October 22, 1907. A nice collection of of America's 26th, 33rd and 35th Presidents. This collection must have been gathered over many years. John F. Kennedy was not even born until 1917, two years before Roosevelt's death. THEODORE ROOSEVELT (1858-1919), HARRY TRUMAN (1884-1972) and JOHN F. KENNEDY (1917-1963) are among the nation's most venerated chief executives. Since the postcard contains no other text, it was probably returned with Teddy Roosevelt's signature during his Presidency (1901-1909). Kennedy probably signed as President too. He had, tragically, no post-presidency, and it's doubtful a collector would have added a mere Senator's signature to an antique postcard bearing the autographs of two other Presidents. Note the flag with 45 stars! (Another star would be needed just one month after this postcard was mailed, when Oklahoma achieved statehood on November 16, 1907.) Another interesting thing about this item is the postmark; San Francisco's central post office was one of only two buildings south of Market Street - the other being the US Mint - to have survived the great San Francisco earthquake and fire of April 1906, and it became a symbol of hope for the City following this great calamity. Edges and corners worn and lightly creased. Lightly toned. Ink stamps near left edge. Ink stamps and notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
