    Description

    1960 Bobby Jones Signed Book. 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." Here we find a bold and spacious autograph from the author of "Golf is My Game" on the book's opening page, rating an unimprovable 10/10 in black ink. The volume itself shows wear, particularly on the spine, and is missing its dust jacket, but is otherwise in solid and complete condition. The signature is unaffected by any condition concerns. An essential autograph from one of the Golden Age of Sport's key figures. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
