Joseph Biden AM Re: Meeting President Ford

Joseph Biden handwrites a reply on a typed letter signed by Ronald E. Wade, "Ron", 1 p., Lone Star, Texas.  August 13, 1979.  Expected mailing folds, creasing, staple hole at top left. A former collector has written a transcript of Biden's handwritten note at the bottom of the page. 7.25" x 10.5." Provenance: From the collection of Ronald Ellis Wade.

Biden writes, in full, "Ford Meeting of For Rel Comm on evacuation of Vietnam".  

Below is an interesting interview from TheHill.com, about Ron Wade and his collection of Presidential memorabilia:

Step into Ronald Wade’s office and it’s easy to see why he’s listed in “Guinness World Records 2015” for the largest collection of U.S. presidential memorabilia — it’s really a replica of the Oval Office.

“Actually, they quit counting,” Wade says of his immense collection of White House and presidential campaign items, “because I probably have closer to 20,000 or 30,000 items, if not closer to 100,000 — that’s with duplication.” The official count from the folks behind the famed book puts Wade’s collection in chief at 6,960 pieces as of last year.

The lifelong Republican has been racking up “practically anything that has to do with American politics” since he was 10 years old.

“My first memory in life is wearing an ‘I Like Ike’ button, and I was probably 4 years old. So I’ve always been interested in politics,” Wade, 64, tells ITK.

The retired Texas Department of Human Services supervisor and Ex White House aide to President Nixon, says he counts former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush as friends. His most prized item in the collection is from the 41st commander in chief’s failed 1964 Senate bid.

“George W. has been to my house, and seen my collection, and was quite impressed,” boasts Wade, who has also donated several pieces from his massive memorabilia stockpile to the George W. Bush Presidential Library outside Dallas.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
