Offered here is an original Champions Dinner Menu from the 1970 Open Championship at St Andrews. This Champions Dinner was held in honor of defending Champion Roberto De Vicenzo, and Jack Nicklaus would go on to win the 1970 Open. There is a handwritten "MAX" written on the inside of the program - leading us to presume that this menu originated from 1951 Open Champ Max Faulkner.

Autographed Champions Dinners menus are highly sought after from recent years Masters Champions Dinner. But a vintage Open Championship signed Champions Dinner menu is in an entirely different league in terms of rarity.

This menu is autographed by:
