1973 Bob Hope Classic Glass Pro-Am Winner's Trophy From Arnold Palmer's Final Win


Presented here is the 1973 Bob Hope Classic Glass Pro-Am Winner's Trophy from what would later be known as 'The King' Arnold Palmer's 62nd and final PGA Tour victory, no one knew it would be his last. The athlete's nemesis Father Time has brought down the mighty across the world of sport for as long as reporters have been reporting. One final tournament that fittingly was named after the great entertainer Bob Hope, the California desert in February 1973 Palmer would hoist the trophy one more time. Palmer won every year starting in 1955 - until 1972 came and went. The 1973 Bob Hope Desert Classic would get him back in the winner's circle for one last opportunity to give the thumbs up smile to his army as a PGA Tour champion. "I hope it's not as long before my next win," Palmer would tell the assembled media after edging fellow immortal Jack Nicklaus by two strokes. Palmer's bid for another win would fall short and the 5th most wins ever on the tour at 62 would stay for good.

This stunning crystal trophy exudes class, with the iconic comedian tournament namesake silhouette below "Bob Hope Desert Classic Winner 1973."
