Presented is an autographed cut depicting President John F. Kennedy. President Kennedy served as the 35h President of the United States of America. Throughout his tenure in the oval office, Kennedy faced several challenges such as the Cold War with the Soviet Union, which at one point climaxed with the Cuban Missile Crisis. Kennedy would be assassinated on November 22, 1963 by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas. Offered is this file card that features a small drawing of Kennedy that reads: “Pictures of J.F.K. sketched on Nov 22 1963 at Prayer Breakfast in Forth Worth, Texas”. President Kennedy has signed this carde underneath the picture drawing in pencil. This card measures 3 x 5 inches and is unframed. Given the events of that day, it’s more than likely that this item might have been the last ever signature of Kennedy. This item comes with a LOA from Steve Grad of Beckett Authentication.

Is there a question about this item? Certainly it may represent exactly what you say; but even if it doesn't it is a very attractive sketch of JFK with a beautiful, bold, crisp signature that would be a welcome addition to any collection

No question about its authenticity. It just seems so eerie.

I saw that Kennedy lot. It may not be the very last but it's close, that's for sure. Remarkable piece.

Good point, Steve. There's no way of knowing for sure, but it's remarkable.

As far as I know, there is a Dallas newspaper dated either November 21 or 22, 1963, that a Dallas maid had Kennedy autograph the morning of the assassination. It is widely believed to be Kennedy's last autograph. Because of that, the signed newspaper sold for about $37,000 a few years back.
Just a side note, about 2/3 of Americans don't agree with the conclusions of the Warren Report...and they are right.

That's right, James! The Shapell Organizations owns it. Signed 11/22/63 and called the last autograph of JFK:

If the one at Goldin was actually signed at the Chamber of Commerce breakfast, though, it was signed AFTER this newspaper.

I think it's safe to say that ANY JFK autograph confirmed to have been signed that day would be worth loads of cash!

Yes, I was wondering about which would have been the "last" when I found the newspaper on Google. I agree with James that anything signed that day is valuable. 

If any of you saw the recent film, Jackie, it was a pretty amazing reenactment of tragic time. 

The newspaper I referred to sold for $39,000 in 2009 as reported by CNN. Here's a pic.
