Detailed description on our website.

The ancient sport of golf is examined in this collection of antique magazines. Presented is a lot of (11) “The American Golfer” issues, all from the year 1922. Under the guidance of editor, contributor and avid golfer Grantland Rice, this fascinating publication covered all things golf, while also delving into other sports. Though these well-worn issues rate in the (FR to GD) range, they remain appealing with visually delightful covers featuring the artwork of James Montgomery Flagg, renowned for his 1917 “Uncle Sam-I Want You” military recruitment poster. Among the many features are photos of Babe Ruth playing golf, Bill Tilden playing tennis and multiples of Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen. Included are:
