In 1953, a 40 year old Ben Hogan had one of the most historic years in golf history. Hogan won 5 of the 6 tournaments that he entered, including 3 Major Championships - the Masters, US Open, and Open Championship. He famously did not have a chance to compete in the 1953 PGA Championship to win the Grand Slam because the tournament overlapped with the Open Championship.

This Ben Hogan autographed "1953" Print measures 24 7/8" x 18 1/2" and is matted to an overall 27 7/8" x 22 1/2". Though 1,953 of these prints were produced and signed by the artist, surely a scant few were ever autographed by Ben Hogan.
