39th President. Autograph letter signed (ALS) “Jimmy Carter”, personal stationery, October 19, 1997, sent to Rankin Smith, founding owner of the NFL Atlanta Falcons team, in full:
Rosalynn and I are very grateful for your superb hospitality yesterday. Being with you and your family, receiving public recognition and a standing ovation for our Center, and witnessing a great performance by the Falcons was an experience we’ll never forget.
Presented custom framed and not examined out of frame but in apparent very fine condition.
Handwritten letters from Jimmy Carter are exceedingly rare, especially with good personal content such as this letter.
