    Beatles - John Lennon And Others Signed 1977 Jimmy Carter Presidential Inaugural Gala Performance Program. On the eve of his presidential inauguration, Jimmy Carter hosted a star-studded gala performance at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC, which was broadcast nationally by CBS television. John had only a year before emerged victorious in his years-long immigration battle with the US government, and it must have been a great pleasure and proud moment for Citizen Lennon to attend this important event. This rare item from that evening bears the Carter-Mondale inauguration seal on the front, lists all of the performers and presenters inside, and notes production staff and thank-you's on the back. But what makes it truly incredible is the astounding number of autographs of famous names from entertainment, politics, sports, and media that were collected that evening. John has signed boldly in black ink on the front cover, and with his signature are those of Muhammad Ali, Warren Beatty, Gregg Allman, Lauren Bacall, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Jack Nicholson, Walter Cronkite, Hank Aaron, Walter Mondale, Tip O'Neill, Jean Stapleton, Omar Bradley, Leonard Bernstein, Redd Foxx, James Dickey, Carl Bernstein, and two others. Each of the four pages measures approximately 8.5" x 11", on heavy stock cream paper. In Excellent condition, all signatures bold, with some of the signed names printed in ink below the autographs in a separate hand. COA from Frank Caiazzo. COA from Heritage Auctions.
