A fine pair of relics from President John F. Kennedy's well-remembered May 19, 1962 birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden: a ticket to the gala event and accompanying program. The 4" x 6" ticket, designed in red, white, and blue with a b/w printed image of Kennedy to the left, admits the bearer to SEC. 202 ROW E SEAT 9 in exchange for a $10.00 contribution. The 8" x 10" 4pp. programs lists the entertainers, including of course Marilyn Monroe, who would go on to sing an infamously sultry version of "Happy Birthday" to the Kennedy that night. The ticket has been tastefully mounted on white board backing, and both items have been remarkably preserved in very good to fine condition.
