When Bobby Jones left the United States for Europe, he hoped to complete the grand slam of golf, but in reality it seemed far fetched that anyone could really pull it off. When the SS Europa pulled back into New York in July, Jones was only one win away having swept both the British Open and British Amateur on his trip. Here Jones waves to fans after being sighted by photographers for the first time since he accomplished the feat. Accompanied by his wife and parents, this is an important image of the greatest golfer in history, now only one win away from the grand slam! Issued by Acme and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well!
