While Gene Sarazen may have autographed many items during his lifetime, the era of this ball puts this autograph at his peak. Winning the Masters, the PGA Championship, the British Open, and the US Open multiple times through the 1920's and 1930's secured him a place in the World Golf Hall of Fame and a PGA Lifetime Achievement Award. This ball not only would've been signed at a time when Gene was celebrating giant tournament victories, but during the era that global attention on the game of golf shifted from Great Britain to the United States, thanks to incredible players such as Gene and two main competitors: Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen.

This ball is in fourth ball in the fourth row of the group image.
