1930 US Open at Interlachen CC Contestant Badge - Bobby Jones Grand Slam! - Seldom Seen


Offered in this lot we have a 1930 U. S. Open Interlachen Country Club Contestant Badge from the third leg of the Grand Slam of Majors won by Bobby Jones. George Trevor sportswriter for the New York Sun would phrase Jones' four Major triumphs in 1930 as such, "stormed the impregnable quadrilateral of golf." This is one of the more prized United States Open Contestants badges to locate in any condition, and like Jones' in 1930 this one excels. This badge, to an event which captivated the minds of most 1930's Americans whether they were golf fans or not, remains in a solid excellent plus condition (for accuracy slight tarnishing of medal, I'm nitpicking). This week long admittance badge to compete in the United States Golf Association Championship provided its bearer the opportunity to participate in one of the grandest moments in the Golden Age of Sport, Bobby Jones's accomplishment as the only player to win the pre-Masters era Grand Slam. Please see photos with this lot which will give the bidder a better understanding of the high grade of condition maintained on this seldom seen badge. The gold standard for golf badges of participation and Bobby Jones collections.
