Description:
1969 Ryder Cup Captain's Blazer Owned & Worn by Sam Snead. Snead played on seven Ryder Cup teams during his illustrious career and captained the American side three times. This 1969 edition represents his final engagement in the international competition, and the only event in which he did not compete. It's likely no coincidence that this year's absence from the fairways and greens stands as the only edition of Snead's team membership that did not result in an American victory, though the end result was perhaps even superior to yet another victory in the lopsided rivalry.

The 1969 Ryder Cup is best remembered for Jack Nicklaus' remarkable demonstration of sportsmanship on the very last stroke of a contentious battle, conceding Tony Jacklin's short but missable putt to tie the match and thus assuring an unprecedented draw. The noble gesture, known in golf history simply as "The Concession," has established this Ryder Cup as arguably the most famous edition in the tournament's history.

Presented is the navy blazer worn by Snead in his role as captain of the American team, a garment distinguished by a marvelous patch over the heart picturing the flags of the two nations, an image of the eponymous Cup, and the text, "Ryder Cup 1969 Captain." Inside breast pocket bears a label reading, "Custom Tailored for Sam Snead." A "Haas, Baltimore" maker's label is just below. A second maker's label with handwritten attribution to Snead is found inside the interior breast pocket. No apparent size label, but Snead wore a 42 regular. Fine condition. Included is a modern print of a photograph of Snead wearing this blazer. Letter of provenance from Jack Snead.
