On July 16, 1999, John F. Kennedy, Jr. departed from Fairfield, New Jersey, at the controls of his Piper Saratoga light aircraft. He was traveling with his wife Carolyn and sister-in-law Lauren Bessette to attend the wedding of his cousin Rory Kennedy at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts after first dropping Lauren off in Martha’s Vineyard. He had purchased the plane on April 28, 1999, from Air Bound Aviation. Carolyn and Lauren were passengers sitting in the second row of seats. Kennedy had checked in with the control tower at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport, but the plane was reported missing after it failed to arrive on schedule.
JFK Jr., his wife and his sister-in-law died tragically when the plane he was piloting crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard on July 16th, 1999.
Presented is rare opportunity to own a John F. Kennedy signed baseball. Signed Jr. baseballs rarely if ever appear on the market because of the medium and the young age he died. It is an OAL (Budig) that JFK Jr. signed on a side panel in black ballpoint pen (“9”). The ball itself shows very mild toning from age.

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures, and sports players. It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball) but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do….bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
