George H.W. Bush 1986 Typed Letter Signed as Vice President – With RARE Stamps Issued To Bush as VP


Out of stock



41st President.  Typed letter signed (TLS) “George” AS VICE PRESIDENT, April 1, 1986, on “The Vice President Washington” stationery, to his fishing buddy Bob Boilard in Maine, in full:

When the postmaster set this to Bar and me, she immediately said ‘I know who gets this one’.  I hope you enjoy the stamps.

Hang in!

Love to Maddy.

Accompanied by 12×10 government issued booklet with front cover stating “United States Postal Service / Fish Booklet / Commemorative / U.S. Postage Stamps / March 21, 1986” and “George Bush / Vice President of the United States”.  Amazing item that actually belonged to Bush as VP, albeit briefly, as he gifted it to his very close friend and fishing buddy.

A famous fisherman, the elder Bush enjoyed casting his line for striped bass and blues off of his compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. As vice president, he played a key role in passing amendments to the Sportfish Restoration Act, and during his presidency he established 56 wildlife refuges.
