    Jack Ruby Archive. This lot consists of 13 items relating to Jack Ruby, who shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald. The lot is accompanied by a signed and notarized letter from Sgt. Russell Harrison, the son of William Harrison, who was present at Oswald's shooting. The letter states that his father left the letters to him and that there is no local, municipal, state, or federal claim on the documents. Among the items in this collection is a typed and signed eyewitness account from William Harrison. He was one of the officers who tackled Ruby after he shot Oswald. There is a photograph of Ruby sitting down with several of his cabaret girls; an application for registry, filled out and signed by Ruby for his business in Dallas; two Jack Ruby signed checks, written from his Silver Spur club; and many more. This archive is full of documents relating to Ruby, his business, and his ultimate famous act. A great lot for the Kennedy enthusiast!

    All items in this archive are in very fine to fine condition; the letters have the usual folds; the photograph is in great shape, and looks almost new; the signatures are all bold and dark. *Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
