Harry S. Truman twice-signed Dewey Defeats Truman press photo

05 Mar

Historic and scarce matte-finish 9.75 x 8 UPI News photo of Truman holding the front page of the November 3, 1948, Chicago Tribune with its headline proclaiming “Dewey Defeats Truman,” signed and inscribed in black ink along Truman’s sleeve, and signed again in black ink on the newspaper. A news caption is affixed to the reverse. In very good condition, with moderate contrast to the light signature and inscription across Truman’s arm, light silvering to edges, Truman’s other signature a bit light, but completely legible, and a few mild bends and ripples. Arguably one of the most recognizable and memorable images of any presidential election, highly sought after by collectors and especially interesting in this twice-signed form. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
