British Open Champions

I have been lucky to attend a couple of the Open Championships so I started collecting the champions autographs.  I will never complete the set.  The early guys are impossible to obtain.  Right Now I own every Open Champions autograph from 1898 to present!  The early guys are real expensive!

I was able to recently add the Ultimate Golf Autograph.  This is a very Rare signed postcard of Old Tom Morris.  It was signed May 2nd 1903.  This Post Card was signed and sent a girl in Mid-Lothian a neighboring town of St Andrews.   This item is rare and very valuable.  It's a great image with a great dark autograph.

This is a very rare signed copy of The art of putting.  It is signed by 1887 and 1889 Open Champions Willie Park Jr.  His father was the first Open Champion in 1860.  Mr. Park passed away in 1925 and his autograph is very rare and expensive.  I'm very proud to own this.

Wow  This is a great autograph from the 5 time Open Champions  John Henry Taylor.  It was signed at the 1936 Open Championship at Hoylake.  Could you imagine seeing non playing great at the Open Championship ask him for his autograph and he writes out all this.   LOVE IT!!  Next time I see Jack Nicklaus I will ask him to write out all his Major Victories!!  LOL

This is a really cool letter from 5 Time Open Champion John Henry Taylor to Bobby Locke's Father talking about Bobby Locke.  It is dated 1938 and this is when Bobby Locke started to play well.   He finished in 10th place in the Open.

A handwritten letter by John Henry Taylor.  I guess he was very proud of his victories as he wrote them all out after his signature.  I would be proud too.  5 time winner of the Open.

The great Walter Hagen autograph 4 times and 4 Open Championships.  These autographs came directly from Walter Hagen estate.  They were signed near the end of his life and as he suffered from cancer it is believed they were signed as some sore of neurological test.

WP_000310.jpg

This photo and autograph also came from Walter Hagen's estate.   Mr. Hagan saved these mementoes from a dinner with Arnold Palmer.  It looks like Mr. Hagen asked Arnold Palmer to sign his table name tag.
