(LOT 228)
Scarce Bobby Jones Golf Course Program Signed by Babe Ruth & Dizzy Dean - PSA 10 GEM MINT Autographs

THE BABE & DIZZY!!!... From 1920 through 1930, Hall of Fame golfer Bobby Jones dominated the golf circuit far superior to any of his predecessors, winning 13 Major Tournaments, a mark only bested by Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. In 1930, Jones became the only golfer ever to win all four majors in a single calendar year, the final icing on the cake for his remarkable career. His popularity ultimately led to a prestigious Golf Course being built in his name, the exalted "Bobby Jones Golf Club" that is located within the city limits of Sarasota, Florida. Originally designed by Donald Ross in 1926, it has expanded to include two 18-hole championship courses, and a 9-hole executive course. Considering Bobby Jones unparalleled popularity at the time this course was open, a seemingly infinite number of renowned sports personalities would utilize the course, with the incomparable George Herman "Babe" Ruth being one of those immortals.

That said, presented here is a rather scarce Bobby Jones Golf Course four-page program/scorecard that has been eloquently signed by both Babe Ruth and standout right-handed pitcher Dizzy Dean! Both HOF scripts have been affixed to the front cover in extremely bold led pencil, with PSA appropriately grading both signatures 10 GEM MINT. Dean's desirable signature is situated directly above Bobby Jones head, while the stunning Babe Ruth autograph is perfectly placed across Bobby Jones' classic golfing pose. Un-scored, the interior scorecard is super clean, and the back cover includes an extensive list of appropriate golf/local rules. While we are unsure as to the exact time this program was signed by these two baseball legends, what we do know with 100% certainty is that, like Bobby Jones, both Ruth and Dean set the bar for ultimate perfection at their chosen craft, with Dean being the last NL pitcher to win 30 games (1934). A fantastic and rare pre-WWII keepsake, it includes the signatures of two of our National Pastime's greatest all-time players in GEM MINT fashion, affixed to a golf program representing the legendary Bobby Jones!
