PSA Type 1 Photos

We're ready to shout it from the rooftops - certified Type 1 golf photographs are the most under appreciated (and undervalued) golf collectible. Type 1 photos are the rarest of the rare - the actual photographs printed from the original negative near the time the photograph was taken. In other sports, Type 1 photos have already exploded in value - with multiple baseball photographs already eclipsing $1 million each. Expect Type 1 golf photos to form into their own collecting category in the next year or two, with prices likely soaring as a result. We have spent the past several months curating the best Type 1 golf photographs that we could find, and are pleased to offer in this auction the greatest collection of them ever assembled.

A rare original Type 1 photograph of Bobby Jones receiving the 1930 US Open trophy. The photo itself measures 6" x 8". Authenticated and graded PSA Type 1.
