RR Auctions Theodore Roosevelt and William McKinley Signed Photo

RR Auctions Theodore Roosevelt and William McKinleyExceptional vintage 15.75 x 11.25 Pach Bros. portrait of McKinley and Roosevelt sitting outdoors, affixed to an 18 x 14 mount, signed at the bottom of the image in black ink by both “William McKinley” and “Theodore Roosevelt.” Photo also bears a 1900 Pach Bros. copyright. A vertical crease between the two subjects and a few light surface scuffs, otherwise fine condition.

This grandiose campaign picture of McKinley and Roosevelt was used for the election of 1900, and is among the rarest of all presidential (and vice presidential) signed portraits. This photo also represents a little ‘camera magic.’ Truth be told, McKinley’s picture was actually taken in 1896—seated opposite Vice President Garret Hobart. Upon Hobart’s death at the start of the re-election campaign and subsequent selection of Roosevelt as McKinley’s running mate, a new photomontage was created, using the original photo and one of Roosevelt captured in 1900. Through the wonder of early 20th century technology, the negatives were melded together to form a new image for the campaign. Only the most scrutinizing eye will witness the spot where the two photos were merged. A rare and remarkably unique and oversized image—signed by two men whose administration lasted only six months. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
