John F. Kennedy Personal Checks (5)

Five (5) cancelled checks from John F. Kennedy's First National City Bank personal checking account with signatures dated Nov. 14, 1963. These checks, written eight days before his tragic death, to the following parties for personal expenses: 1) The City of Boston for $2.00; 2) The Guest Fund for $17.00; 3) The Guest Fund for $316.00; 4) The Guest Fund for $127.40; 5) Russell D. Boles, M.D. for $30.00 (the President's gastroenterologist). Three of these five checks are made out to "The Guest Fund" which was a Naval Administrative Unit in the Washington Navy Yard Annex, Washington 25, D.C. All of the checks bear a variety of stamps on the back. Although it is quite possibly that these signatures were the President's, it is believed these were signed by "Secretary 1". One can only imagine what $2.00 to the city of Boston could have paid for in 1963. Checks measure: 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" From the Estate of Thomas J. Walsh, long-time Kennedy financial advisor and family friend. In 1952, responding to a "blind" ad in the New York Times for a tax and real estate accountant, Walsh was hired by Joseph Kennedy to join the Park Agency, Inc., the Kennedy family's financial company that manages all the Kennedy enterprises. A Forbes Magazine article described Walsh as "the Kennedy family's tax expert, fortune guardian, and paymaster" and "the numbers man of the operation." Until his retirement from the Park Agency in 1979, Walsh remained close to all the members of the Kennedy clan, skillfully managing their personal finances, business investments, and family foundations. In a speech Walsh gave following JFK's assassination, he relayed first meeting the young Jack Kennedy at the Park Agency offices shortly after Kennedy had won the 1952 Massachusetts Senatorial election. Their friendship grew over the years, along with JFK's flourishing political career. Walsh continued handling the President's finances during visits to the White House and the family home in Palm Beach. During this time, Walsh became a confident of Jackie, who he continued to advise after she left the White House. This is an unreserved auction with no minimums. This is an online only sale.

Bob Roberts Original Tattoo Art

Mixed media on heavyweight rice paper. 26"X 17". Initialed. Having started as a large-scale Surrealist painter, Bob Roberts' tattoo fascination gradually outgrew is painting pursuits. As a curious pre-teen he would wander into the tattoo shops where he was mesmerized by Flash Art that adorned the walls. After abandoning formal painting, Bob began tattooing in 1973 at The Pike after completing apprenticeships under Bob Show and Col. Bill Todd spanning three years. While making a name for himself in the industry, Roberts moved to San Francisco and worked under Ed Hardy before moving to New York City to open his first shop, Spotlight Tattoo. After three years in the Big Apple, he moved back to Los Angeles and opened Spotlight Tattoo back west. Roberts is still tattooing clients in the same location 20 years later with his son Charlie and daughter Ava, alongside a crew of half a dozen other world class artists. One of the last living tattoo legends, Bob Roberts paints at home in the traditional medium of watercolor on paper creating dense, fanatically-detailed compositions that draw from traditional American tattoo Flash, Tibetan Thangka paintings, and outlaw motorcycle imagery.

Floyd Patterson / Ingemar Johansson Illustrations

In the third round of the World Heavyweight Championship fight on June 26, 1959 a then relatively unknown fighter from Sweden floored Floyd Patterson seven times to become the new Heavyweight Champion. The fight stunned the boxing world and elevated Johansson to Sports Illustrated's exalted title of "Sportsman of the Year." Prior to the much anticipated re-match, SI's cover story on June 20, 1960 was a seven page article titled "Why Ingo Will Do It Again." To illustrate the story, SI brought in Robert Riger, arguably the most accomplished artist whose work consistently appeared on that popular magazine's pages. Riger produced thirteen drawings for the story, depicting the combatants in action as the writer of the article, Martin Kane, anticipated they would unfold. Fight fans, however, now know that the re-match did not turn out the way he expected-Patterson won back his title. Robert Riger worked on 15 x 20in. illustration boards, with one or two drawings per board. On the verso of the boards are Sports Illustrated's notes indicating that this original art appeared in their June 20, 1960 issue. This lot contains two drawings on two boards. This is an unreserved auction with no minimums. This is an online only sale. Items may be viewed upon appointment in New York City.

Johnny Winter's 70's-era Writing Tablet
This writing tablet features four pages covered in notes written by hand by Johnny Winter. The cover itself is littered with names and phone numbers. It contains what appears to be an early pass at the lyrics for "Bad Luck Situation," with lyrics that are similar but differ considerably from the final released version. Additional pages contain early lyrics for "Black Cat Bone." The pages also contain what appear to be lyrics for songs that were never recorded. Though there are but a few pages, each one is potent and powerful, providing a unique insight into this rock legend's writing process. The variations on old tunes and never before seen inscriptions contained within will prove an invaluable addition to any Winter fan's collection. Guernsey's
