    Description

    1941-42 Bobby Jones Signed Letters Lot of 9. The most important figure of golf's Golden Age provides nine examples of his signature in the most desirable of formats, penned well before he was stricken with the illness that would ultimately end his life. Five of the typed letters are rendered upon "The American Golf Institute" letterhead, which lists Jones as "Director," and fellow links legend Horton Smith as an "Associate Director." The balance of the typed letters appear on "Jones, Powers, Williams & Dorsey" law office letterhead. One of the nine letters is two pages, the rest only one. A single letter makes brief mention of golf, but the correspondence, all addressed to "Mr. Rufus Brown" of "The Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Rutland (VT)" remains almost entirely business in nature, though it is clear that a friendship exists here as well. Most importantly, each closing signature is rendered in 9/10 or better black fountain pen ink, and the letters remain free of any condition issues besides the original mailing folds. A marvelous lot for the autograph investor and dealer alike. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000.
