The Life Association of Scotland calendars of the early 1900s produced some of golf's great images. Unfortunately, they can seldom be found in even decent condition, and many of the prints have since been removed from the original calendar. Offered here is the most desirable Life Association calendar ever produced - the 1908 Old Tom Morris calendar. This calendar was produced in 1907 for the 1908 calendar year, which means that Old Tom was still alive and likely approved the use of this image for the insurance company. The timing was fortuitous, as Tom Morris passed away on May 24, 1908 - while this calendar was still in use. It measures 17 1/2" x 22" and is a heavy cardboard stock, and is framed to approximately 18" x 23". This is by far the highest grade Tom Morris Life Association calendar that we've ever seen.
