    Description

    John F. Kennedy: Three Golf Club Head Covers Owned by President Kennedy. A wonderful remnant of Kennedy's love of golf, these handsome golf club covers are two toned leather and boast his initials in gilt on ivory colored crests. Measuring an overall length of 12" including the metal loop at the top, these bear the numbers 1, 3, and 5 in the same color of leather as the monogrammed crests. Featured in the Sotheby's 1996 auction "Estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis," these covers are listed for sale 6834, lot 758A where they sold for $34,500. Other golf pieces from the auction also fared well, from Kennedy's golf clubs selling for $1,160,000 to his four MacGregor woods and a Wilson 2 wood reaching $772,500. Included is a framed photograph of a grinning Kennedy post swing, the golf covers visible at the left side of the image. An avid and incredibly skilled golfer, the joy on his face is obvious as is the admiration and excitement in his spectators' expressions. Also included is the Sotheby catalog with the prices realized. These covers are in great condition with some rubbing and fading of gilt initials. Some wear as is to be expected from use. Capture your own piece of Camelot!

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
