Description

1924 Walter Hagen Signed Letter. This is a truly outstanding museum quality item written on Royal Liverpool stationery with a full fountain pen signature of The Haig. The spectacular content belies the bravado of the new Champion. He writes, "On behalf of Mrs. Hagen and myself I thank British golfers for the great and cordial reception and many kindnesses we have received while with you to play in the Open Championship. I did not come to win it but to try for it and to enjoy the sportsmanship and friendship which has always been extended in such abundance. With my fellow countryment I look to the Little Island as the home of golf and it is always a joy to play amongst you. I shall try to come next year and defend the title I am so proud to win. Sincerely yours, [signed] Walter Hagen." A true museum piece! Single page (4.25 x 7) of letterhead exhibits original mailing folds and light toning, neither any distraction. The closing signature is 9+/10. LOA from Mark Emerson. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
