1894 A.F. MacFie Signed Scorecard. The first British Amateur Championship was held in 1885 at Hoylake and won by A. F. MacFie. Nine years later, young Freddie Tait, who himself would win the Amateur twice (in 1896 and 1898) played a challenge match at The Old Course against Old Tom Morris and shot a then course record 72. In Tait's own hand, he wrote down his scores on this sheet and had it attested by none other than A. F. MacFie. This is the only known signature of the first British Amateur Champion. His pencil autograph rates a 7/10, though we must stress the scarcity disallows any quibbling over condition. Page measures 3.5 x 4.5. LOA from Mark Emerson. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
