    1955 Bobby Jones Signed Letter with Accompanying Book Invoice. Certainly one of the most intelligent and well-educated athletes in the American Pantheon, Jones demonstrates his continued love of learning in his later years with the provided lot. A brief typed letter to "Miller's Bookstore" in his Atlanta hometown reads, "I am keeping the two books checked on the enclosed invoice. The others are wrapped and available for your pick-up at my home, No. 3425 Tuxedo Road, N.W." Jones provides his full "Robert T. Jones, Jr." signature at the close in 10/10 black fountain pen ink. The page of Jones' business letterhead exhibits moderate foxing and original mailing folds, otherwise fine. Joining the letter is the invoice in question, with books entitled Why You Say It and Language Meaning & Maturity chosen. The books for return involve the same linguistic subject matter. Some toning to the invoice, otherwise no issues of note. Each piece is simply matted for display. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.
