Today America celebrates a truly great man.
It celebrates the idea that love conquers hate...
And that freedom from chains is always worth fighting for.
Martin Luther King Jr. devoted his life to those principles.
He's remembered for his bravery, his vision and his sacrifice.
He was one of the defining voices of the 20th century.
And he's one of the most significant autographs you'll ever own.
Here's your chance to acquire one.
Martin Luther King's signature is one of the most significant autographs you'll ever own.
From King's hands to yours
This is a highly rare Martin Luther King signed programme.
Signed in July 1957, during one of the most important periods of his life.
- The condition is superb
- King's autograph is exceptional
- And it has a deep significance to the Civil Rights Movement
This is more than a cut signature. It's a real object from history.
Handled personally by King and carefully preserved for 65 years.
Martin Luther King signed this programme during an awards dinner in New York in July 1957.
An important moment
King signed this programme on June 15, 1957, during an awards dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
He was honoured as the Utility Club's 'Man of the Year', for his work in leading the Montgomery bus boycott - one of the landmarks of the Civil Rights Movement.
This autograph captures the moment in which King became a force in American politics.
Signed just one month after his first national speech, at the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom demonstration in Washington D.C.
It's a remarkable piece of paper, with the weight of history behind it.
King's autographs are increasingly hard to find on the open market. This is the only example I have available.
The programme was printed by the Utility Club, an organisation serving African American communities in New York.
It measures 8.5" by 10.5", and features just mild handling wear and a minor fold to the front cover.
King signs clearly and crisply in blue ball-point pen, with no personal dedication.
It's an excellent example of his autograph, placed perfectly on the page.
An exceptional example of King's autograph, crisply signed and perfectly placed.
High demand. Fierce competition.
Martin Luther king's autograph has been described as “the ultimate piece for collectors and institutions”.
But examples rarely appear for sale.
When a logbook he signed during his incarceration in Birmingham Jail went up for auction in February 2021, it sparked a bidding war between 28 collectors.
It eventually sold for a world record $130,000. 13 times its estimate.
And in November 2022, a signed copy of King's 1958 book Strides Towards Freedom sold for $50,000.
The final price was more than four times the high estimate, and set a new world record price for a Martin Luther King signed book.
As you can see, demand for his signature is incredibly strong.
Your opportunities to acquire an example this good are few and far between.
So this is clearly a very significant piece to own.
Now and for the future.
This superb Martin Luther King signed programme is a major addition to your collection.
