Description

    1913 Fenway Park Season Pass Baseball Tickets issued to John Francis Kennedy (signed). John Francis Kennedy was held in high regard in the city of Boston as the Schoolhouse Commissioner, and member of the Boston Finance Commission. Mr. Kennedy was unofficially, the hand-picked successor to Boston Mayor - John Francis "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald, the grandfather of the late US President. Before Mr. Kennedy could realize his dream, he passed on 20 Aug 1913.

    Originating from Mr. Kennedy's family is this 1913 Fenway Park season pass booklet, which originally contained passes to every Red Sox home game. The paint had barely dried at Fenway Park as it was only in its second year of service. Babe Ruth was just one year from making his big league debut. Mr. Kennedy must have been a staunch Red Sox backer as all of the complimentary tickets were used leading up to his death. Thirteen tickets, are still left in the leather-bound (4.75.x2.5") keepsake. This offer also includes is a letter (copy) of appointment signed by Mayor "Honey Fitz"; John F. Kennedy's funeral prayer card (Aug. 20, 1913); and a personal business card.
