Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Extremely rare card of legendary golfer Bobby Jones from the “Thrilling Moments in the Lives of Famous Americans” series released by the Donut Co. of America in 1937. These blank-back cards (1-7/8 x 2-7/8 inches) were issued on the side panels of donut boxes and were intended to be hand cut from the boxes. Each card features an actual-likeness black and white line drawing with a single background color of a legendary figure. The offered card is bright, crisp, and clean, with bold colors and light wear on the corners. The ink stamp and evidence of scrapbook removal, both on the reverse, are solely responsible for the modestly assigned grade. This is a magnificent example of one of Jones' most striking and rare cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
