(Old) Tom Morris (d.1908) was a pioneer of professional golf who was credited with countless innovations to the modern game. The bearded Scotsman is pictured standing on a course (which he probably designed) on this signed circa 1899-1901 James Patrick postcard. Expertly framed and matted to 13x15, the 3-1/2 x 5" correspondence piece is penned by this "founding father" of golf along the bottom edge with a black steel-tip fountain pen. Despite moderate trimming and staining, the script still registers ("6") penmanship and is an exceedingly desirable among vintage golf historians. Considering Morris passed away 105 years ago, this autograph is a classic case of where demand exceeds supply. The black-and-white pose is clean and the condition of the reverse is obviously unknown.
