    Description

    Bobby Jones' How to Play Golf (The Standard Star, 1931). Window Card (14" X 19.25").
    A legendary golfer who competed on a national and international level, Bobby Jones was the Tiger Woods of his day; not only a great athlete, but a media darling as well. He was so popular that, in 1931, he made a series of short films under the title, How I Play Golf. At around the same time, The Standard Star, a newspaper based in New Rochelle, NY, began a series of articles by this great athlete, titled, "How to Play Golf," and it is this newspaper series that the window card offered here was created to promote. With beautiful art by Max P. Millians, this rare piece has edge wear with tears, a top left corner chip, tears in the corners, light smudging and staining throughout, a horizontal crease at the top of the poster, and a tear in the bottom border. Additionally, the bottom right corner has been reattached with museum tape on the reverse. These slight flaws do nothing to detract from the overwhelming appeal of this scarce and desirable beauty. It is a true treasure for anyone who loves the game of golf. Very Good/Fine.
