This highly impressive and collectible book routinely sells for a few thousand dollars when found in any condition. This being Bobby Jones' personal copy, we have no doubt that this will set a new auction record.

Arnold Palmer famously won the 1964 Masters Tournament. Afterwards, Palmer produced a very limited number of books titled "Arnold Palmer's Scrapbook", which is a huge 40 page book chronicling Palmer and his '64 Masters victory. This very rare and remarkable scrapbook is filled with photographs, articles, scorecards, newspaper sources, humorous portrait drawings of past champions, and a map of Augusta National Golf Club at the end.

The scrapbook is huge - it measures 17x14, padded green leather, stamped and lettered in gilt. Limited First Edition. One of only a select number of copies issued in a special presentation binding. This book was presented by Arnold Palmer to the great Bobby Jones. Decades later, this book was signed by Arnold Palmer to the person who acquired it after Bobby Jones' death.
