Harry Vardon Signed & Handwritten Note on Letterhead - May 8th, 1931


Golfing great Harry Vardon leaves his signature and note on the bottom portion of his personal letterhead, complete with a depiction of eight medals and each of his six Open Championship medals. Vardon won the Open Championship a record six times, (1896, 1898, 1899, 1903, 1911, 1914) and was the 1900 U.S. Open champion. He, James Braid, and John Henry Taylor formed the 'Great Triumvirate' of the three renowned British golfers at the turn of the century. The three Englishmen combined to win the Open Championship 16 out of 21 times spanning from 1894-1914. Vardon, passed away in 1937, long before autographs were the popular pursuit as they are today. Combine this with his legendary status as both player and innovator in the game, and it is easy to see why any signed item of Vardon's that hits the marketplace is highly coveted. Vardon went on to publish golf instructional books. The note on the letterhead is made out to Mr. A.H. Gates of the Professional Golfers Association.The flowing signature was inked on May 8th 1931 and would grade a 9/10 with great strength on the letterhead that titles Harry Vardon as 'Golf Club and Ball Maker.' James Spence Authentication (JSA) has reviewed this signature and their full letter of authentication comes with this lot. A letter of from PGA Historian Bob Denney will accompany this lot.
