Product Description

Franklin D. Roosevelt Autographed Program

This item is believed to be one of the only known autographs by FDR on a polio-related document. This item is quite notable as FDR, diagnosed with Polio in 1921, went to great lengths to hide his condition from the public during his presidency. Normally wheelchair bound, reporters were given strict rules not to take photos of the President in his wheelchair or being helped by advisors, and he devised a special method to walk using a cane and an assistant so he could approach the podium for speeches.

This item includes FDR's autograph on a program for a play at the Warm Springs facility in Georgia, before becoming president it was a favorite destination for FDR as bathing in the hot springs was believed to be beneficial for his condition. In 1926 when the facility had financial difficulties FDR bought the property and converted it into a rehabilitation facility for polio patients.

Item has been inspected by Beckett authentication and will include a Beckett LOA.  

Comes w/ "As seen on Pawn Stars" Certificate of Authenticity, and hand-signed photo of Rick Harrison
