Richard Nixon Signed and Inscribed Photograph
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $290.00
Richard Nixon is captured in his most classic victory pose in this original large format (11 x 14 inches) black and white professional photograph by Ray Fisher. Nixon has just accepted the nomination amid the cheers of the crowd at the 1968 Republican National Convention in Miami Beach, Florida. The composition of this photograph makes it one of the most memorable and artistic images ever taken of Nixon. In the lower right corner the President has signed and inscribed the original print directly to the photographer: "To Ray Fisher, With best wishes, Richard Nixon, 5-12-81" ("9/10") in blue ballpoint. The inscription and signature are large and bold. Nixon has placed his signature and inscription in a light background area at the bottom of the photo which provides the best contrast. Ray Fisher is a very well known professional photographer, and is particularly noted for his photographs of Nixon and the 1968 Republican Convention. His credit appears in the lower left corner of the photo. The verso is stamped numerous times with his copyright seal (copyright 1981). Richard Nixon, of course, would go on to win the 1968 election and become 37th President of the U.S. During his second term , the Watergate scandal would force his resignation and forever relegate the smiling, victorious Nixon seen here to history. This is a tremendous signed professional photograph of Richard Nixon at the height of his glory and popularity. A light horizontal crease is present but does not call attention to itself or significantly detract from the outstanding display value, otherwise in Excellent condition. LOA from James Spence, Steve Grad & John Reznikoff/PSA DNA. Reserve $200. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $290.00
