ROBERT T. "BOBBY" JONES AUTOGRAPH SIGNED LETTER FROM 12/10/1954 WITH GREAT HISTORICAL CONTENT REGARDING HIS DEAR FRIEND & PRESIDENT EISENHOWER, THE 1st LADY AND GENERAL SNYDER. ALSO INCLUDED ARE 7 VERY RARE ORIGINAL BALL MARKERS OF THE 13 MAJORS HE WOUND UP WINNING. THESE BALL MARKERS WERE HANDED OUT TO THE PLAYERS BEFORE THE TOURNAMENTS. THESE ARE AS FOLLOWS: 1923 U.S. OPEN, 1926 U.S. OPEN, 1926 BRITTISH OPEN, 1927 BRITTISH OPEN, 1927 AMATEUR OPEN, 1929 U.S. OPEN AND 1930 U.S. OPEN - SEVERAL OF THESE ARE VERY RARE AND GO UPWARDS OF $50+ EACH. I WAS ORIGINALLY GOING TO SET THEM ON THE FRONT OF THE FRAMED LETTER IN A PUTTING GREEN TYPE SCENARIO BUT I'LL LET THE BUYER CHOOSE HOW HE/SHE WANTS TO IMPLEMENT THESE RARE BALL MARKERS. SIGNED LETTER: DECEMBER 10, 1954 A SCULPTOR NAMED MR. SANDS DID A BUST OF THE LATE GREAT PRESIDENT DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER FOR MR. JONES. BOBBY SENT THE SCULPTOR A THANK YOU LETTER WITH COMPLIMENTS FROM THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE. ALSO, BEFORE I PURCHASED THIS I SUBMITTED A PSA/DNA QUICK OPINION AND AS RARE AS IT HAPPENS, THE ITEM CAME BACK AS "LIKELY GENUINE" SO I PURCHASED IT ON THE SPOT. THE LETTER IS ON BOBBY'S OWN LETTERHEAD AND HE WRITES THE FOLLOWING: TO MR. SANDS: DECEMBER 10, 1954 DEAR MR. SANDS, DOWN IN AUGUSTA ON THANKSGIVING WE HAD THE CHANCE TO ENJOY SOME MORE THE BUST OF THE PRESIDENT YOU SENT TO ME. THE PRESIDENT, MRS. EISENHOWER AND GENERAL SNYDER ALL HAD A LOOK AT IT. EVERYONE AGREED THAT IT WAS VERY GOOD INDEED. MY WIFE AND I BROUGHT IT HOME WHERE IT NOW HAS AN HONOR PLACE ON THE MANTEL IN OUR LIBRARY. THANKS AGAIN EVER SO MUCH. WITH BEST REGARDS, SINCERLEY, ROBERT T. JONES JR. PLEASE ADD $39.99 FOR SHIPPING. READY TO HANG. PROFESSIONALLY DOUBLE MATTED & FRAMED WITH LIFETIME STATS ON HIS B/W PHOTO AND A NICE PICTURE OF AMEN CORNER FROM THE MASTERS GOLF COURSE.
