Most people would not keep their expired licenses, but a card showing you were a member of the White House staff in 1959, that's a keeper.
Just like our driver's license, the card shows the pertinent facts of the individual for identification purposes. I was so looking forward to having verification of Bob's exact height, but ... At the beginning of his career he was most often listed as being 6-0 and weighing 140 lbs. Later in his career he is listed as 6-1 or, sometimes, 6-1/2. Bob is turning 55 at this time, so well into the stage of life wherein our height decreases and our waistline increases. 6-1... hmm. 185 lbs ... hmm. Well, it is close enough for government work!
Check out the nifty wallet for the I.D. card. Wonder if it came with the card, or if Bob was just adding his touch to his accessories.
Personal items of your favorite star are so great to have. In this case, Bob's wallet is being treasured by fan Liz. Thanks for sharing it with us.
