1926 US Open Qualifying Rounds Contestant Badge - Bobby Jones Victory!


This seldom seen 1926 US Open badge served as a badge of passage to the qualifying rounds for the elite few golfers hoping to access one of Bobby Jones greatest career moments. This is a good condition example of this early U.S. Open badge, complete with its original clasping pin that is still operational today. The reverse contains the original button backing paper of the manufacturer Manhattan Emblem Company on Broadway in NYC. As significant as this badge is for scarcity and condition of equal appeal to collectors is the champion in '26 was Bobby Jones. In the 1926 U.S. Open contested at Scioto Country Club in Columbus, Ohio, Jones made a spectacular two-putt birdie on the 72nd hole to win by one stroke over Joe Turnesa claiming his second U.S. Open Championship (1923). With the victory, and already having claimed the British Open title earlier in the summer, Jones became the first golfer to hold both titles simultaneously. Dimensions are 1 1/4" in diameter for badge. This 1926 badge provides all the requisites of the ideal golf collectible, and would be a worthy inclusion or upgrade in just about any advanced collection. There is very slight oxidation on the edge. Pictures included in this listing act as an additional condition report.
