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.
1923 Bobby Jones w/ Perry Adair & Jock Hutchison PSA Type I Photograph
This is an original 1923 PSA Type 1 photograph of Bobby Jones shortly after he won his 1st Major Championship at the '23 US Open. Jones is on a tee box alongside Jock Hutchison and Perry Adair. Extremely high quality image in an impossibly high grade for being 100 years old. Wonderful handwritten notes on the reverse referring to Bobby Jones as the "National Open Champ." The photo itself measures 9.5" x 5.5".
