    Description

    Wooden mallet head putter stamped "The Travis" on top of the head. This interesting center shaft club has a small oval head, brass face, rectangular lead back weight, metal sole and built-up leather wrap grip. After Walter Travis won the British Amateur in 1903 with a brilliant stretch of putting, (the first American to win the tournament) all center shaft putters were banned in the U.K. by the R. & A. (Royal and Ancient) for three decades. There is damage at the neck, very common to the Travis putters, and a few small rock dents in the sole. Circa 1912. Good +.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
