Posted By: <b>JW</b><p>The 1926 Lambert & Butler (Who's Who in Sport) is normally recognized as the Jones rookie. The Hagen is a little more difficult. It could either be a 1926 Spalding, 1926 W512 or any of his three 1927 Churchman's (which are more popular). They also both in the W590 set, but the dates on this set is 1925-31 and it isn't that popular. I look forward to hearing other opinions.<br />Jason

Posted By: <b>JW</b><p>Leon,<br>Don't get me wrong, I like the W590's and I especially like your uncut sheet of W590's. I would like to add an uncut sheet to my collection. BTW, I believe the golfer on the sheet is Glenna Collett Vare.<br>Jason

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>Your Hagen is one of the most full bordered I've seen. Most that I've owned or the ones I currently own have very tight borders, much like the Bobby Jones. I've oftened wondered where both fell on the original sheets.<br><br><br><br>Also, I'd like to note that I've owned another variation of the Bobby Jones. <br><br><img src="http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f133/kylebicking/2183000320098625559xxYHHS_ph.jpg" alt="[linked image]"><br><br><img src="http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f133/kylebicking/2183000320098625559xxYHHS_ph.jpg" alt="[linked image]">
