Letter on Augusta National Golf Club letterhead from Clifford Roberts to Roberto De Vicenzo. In the letter, Cliff Roberts discusses the upcoming 1968 Masters Tournament. Roberts wants De Vicenzo to reach out to fellow South American (Peru) Raul Travieso regarding his pending invite to the Masters Tournament.

Little did Clifford Roberts know that the 1968 Masters Tournament would become the most infamous in history due to De Vicenzo's scorecard gaffe. If only Cliff Roberts had a crystal ball, and this letter could've offered different advice to De Vicenzo!
