Bobby Jones Typed Letter Signed

17 Feb

TLS signed “Bob Jones,” one page, 6.75 x 9.75, personal letterhead, April 18, 1958. Letter to fellow golfer Pete Kosky, in part: “Actually my illness was much over-advertised, and I made a very quick recovery.” Double-matted and framed with a photo of Jones admiring his shot to an overall size of 19 x 16.5. In fine condition. In 1948 Jones was diagnosed with the rare central nervous system disease syringomyelia, a debilitating disorder in which a cyst forms within the spinal cord. Five months after this letter was written the people of St. Andrew’s, Scotland, awarded Jones the Freedom of the City and the Royal Burgh of St. Andrew’s awards in what has been called the most moving ceremony in the history of golf. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
