Description

    1933 Bobby Jones Signed Letter Offering Membership to Newly-Founded Augusta National Golf Club. Exceedingly desirable letter is the best we've encountered from the brightest star in the American golf constellation, dating just nine months after the first tee shot was clubbed on a course which would come to be revered as hallowed ground for the sport. Typed on "Augusta National Golf Club" letterhead and dated "October 13, 1933," the letter reads, in part, "I am pleased that you found an opportunity to visit our Club last winter, and I hope you liked the course. May I inquire if you would be interested in becoming a member of our Club?" Evidently this question was answered in the affirmative, as the letter is joined by a guest card bearing the name of the letter's recipient and the facsimile signature of Jones, and an Augusta scorecard marked through nine holes and notated "Augusta National Golf Club (Bobby Jones course)." These remain affixed to a scrapbook page, as does the letter itself. The letter is hand signed by Jones in 9/10 black ink, exhibiting original mailing folds and a small tear at center top. Jones remains the most collectible figure in the sport, but this remarkable letter stands head and shoulders above an already desirable pack. A treasure that should be considered a most appealing target by the cultured collector. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
