1935 Ryder Cup at Ridgewood Country Club Sunday Ticket #451 - Great Condition


This offering is for a 1935 Ryder Cup ticket, the first that we offered at The Golf Auction. When examining the condition and existence of this piece we have to dig a little deeper, and get the facts why this is so impressive. Most obvious is that by 1933 The Great Depression had reached its lowest point leaving most by 1935 restricted severely in travel and leisure expenditures. We combine that with weather challenges to patrons paper tickets to gain admittance the '35 Ryder Cup. The first day’s matches were played during intervals of rain and drizzle, conditions which limited attendance and left many of that year's Ryder Cup tickets a soggy mess. Sunday, the final day of competition, was a day of glorious sunshine which drew a crowd of roughly 8,000 spectators, not bad at all for the times, but rising winds in the afternoon sent scores soaring as well as any tickets not firmly attached. We are pleased to report that the ticket offered here is a survivor of those conditions in almost miraculous Near Mint, many might even call it slightly better. With an overall clean presentation it is free from writing or creasing, and with only small signs of surface damage. It comes exempt from the normal usage, plaguing the condition. This ticket will never need upgrading and you will be pleased to own as part of your collection. 3" x 4 1/2." A letter of from PGA Historian Bob Denney will accompany this lot.
