Description

    1960 Bobby Jones Signed Book to Gene Sarazen. Golf nobility doesn't get any nobler than the pair linked by this special artifact sure to set even a common duffer's heart aflutter. A magnificently preserved first edition, complete with dust jacket, of Jones' autobiography Golf Is My Game, was gifted to the man who beat him by a single stroke in the 1922 US Open. The 10/10 blue ballpoint inscription reads, "For Gene Sarazen, A truly good friend as well as a great competitor, Bob Jones." The enormous historical import of this duo, paired with the stunning condition (only a small tear in the dustjacket denies a NRMT-MT rating for the book itself), makes this one of the most appealing golf post-war autographs to reach the auction block in quite some time. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
