Images of Presidents throwing out the ceremonial first pitch in Washington are highly sought after by collectors. Images of Kennedy throwing are among the best with only three being available (1961-63). Of that trio, the 1961 example is almost impossible with only a handful known to exist. This wire photo is the only example we have ever handled and it presents here in perfect shape. In comparison, we have sold 5-6 of each from 1962 and 1963!
