    Description

    1929 Walter Hagen Signed Oversized British Open Photograph. The finest Hagen signed photograph on earth? We've yet to encounter a legitimate contender. Every aspect of this treasure of the links is superlative in quality, from the artistry of the photographic portrait, to its ideal historical positioning, to the oversized dimensions of the print, to the magnificent form and function of the inscription. Hagen's 9+/10 black fountain pen ink on the cardboard mount serves as the photo's caption, "My second shot 18th hole - Muirfield - 1929, Walter Hagen." The iconic golfer casts a confident glance toward the pin as he stands ready to place the exclamation point upon his definitive Open victory. The image itself measures 9.5x12.5", a rare and expensive format for the period. The signed mount expands the full dimensions to 14x17". A visual tour de force, and the perfect companion to Hagen's golf bag from the 1929 Open likewise presented within this auction. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
