Arnold Palmer famously won the 1964 Masters Tournament. Afterwards, Palmer produced a very limited number of books titled "Arnold Palmers Scrap Book," which is a 40 page book chronicling Palmer and the '64 Masters. This very rare and remarkable scrapbook is filled with photographs, articles, scorecards, newspaper sources, humorous portrait drawings of past champions, and a map of Augusta National Golf Club at the end. It measures 17x14, original padded green leather, stamped and lettered in gilt. Limited First Edition.

One of only a select number of copies issued in a special presentation binding. This book was Sam Snead's personal copy. It is embossed with "Presented to Sam Snead" on the front cover.
