    Description

    1933 Bobby Jones Signed Augusta National First Day Cover.
    One of the great sportsmen of the twentieth century, Jones once dismissed plaudits rendered to him for taking a penalty stroke for an infraction during the US Open which nobody else had witnessed with the statement, "You may as well praise a man for not robbing a bank."

    In 1933, Jones founded the Augusta National Golf Club and a year after the Masters was born. This Augusta Opening Day cover commemorates the golf course as to which all others were to be measured by. Jones signed against the design in 9/10 fountain pen ink. The opposite side of the envelope provides an interesting tidbit. The following was written by the designer of the special first day cover: "You are lucky Mr. Jones autographed only seven covers + I have the other six, yours Jarrett Davenport Cachet Director." The address is written in an unknown hand. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
