TRUMP Autographed / Signed letter concerning the Wollman Ice Rink from 1986. The rink had become an emblem of civic dysfunction. Formerly a jewel in the crown of Central Park, a supporting star in films like Love Story and half a dozen others, Wollman Rink had fallen into disrepair.
What was worse was that the city seemingly had no idea how fix it. Trump, who could see from his office window the construction site that Wollman had been for years, saw an opportunity. In June of 1986, Trump said that he would have it done by Christmas.
"I have total confidence that we will be able to do it, " Trump said. Skating stars like Dorothy Hamill, Scott Hamilton, Dick Button, and Aja Zanova-Steindler glided across the ice at the ribbon cutting, with Button declaring the new rink to be like skating on velvet.
This typed letter on Trump Organization stationery was sent to the head of Community Board 4 inviting her to attend the Gala Re-opening of the rink. This very personal letter shows that he and the head of the Community Board were on first name basis with Mr Trump signing with just his first name and correcting the salutation of the letter to be more personal. It's very unusual and highly collectable. The letter comes with a Letter of Authenticity from James Spence Authentication Service. The LOA also mentions the correction of the Salutation being in Mr.O Boxes and certain countries excluded. You are responsible for paying any import charges.
