Bought this 1917 Boston Braves complete season ticket book. I got it to make a perfect companion piece to the 1913 one I already had for the cross-town team.

Default "honey fitz" for 1913 boston tickets

I apologize if I am stating the obvious, but the John F Kennedy is actually Honey Fitz, mayor of Boston and grandfather to the President. He was a member of the Royal Rooters, was in attendence at the 1912 world series games, and even at the awarding of the trophy where he was photographed by Horner seated with the team in suits. He was involved in a hugh ticket mixup during the world series which makes this group of 1913 tickets even more special. Very nice piece.

Thanks guys - appreciate the comments! Can add more later, but the JFK item is neither the president not Honey Fitz, but another member of the clan with the same name. He was also a Boston politician but unfortunately died in an accident on August 20, 1913. All tickets from August 29 to the end of the season remain in the book.

This JFK was up and coming on the Boston political scene, and was tabbed by Honey Fitz to be his successor. Unfortunately that never happened.

The 35th president JFK wasn't born until 1917, so obviously this wasn't his book.

I've thought it eerie to see he went to all the games up until his death, then to see the remaining unused tickets still intact.

Just a bit more info on the JFK ticket book, since I had a couple of PMs about it.

Included with it when I bought it were several of his personal items, including his business card and Mass card from his funeral, noting the Aug 20 date of passing. There were some copies of letters of correspondence with Mayor Honey Fitz as well.

Just a really neat item I am happy to call mine!
