Featured is a Jack Nicklaus signed 16x20 Sports Illustrated September 12, 1960 photo. This photo was signed by Jack Nicklaus and comes with the Fanatics hologram and certificate of authenticity. Nicklaus turned professional at age 21 toward the end of 1961. His first professional win came in a major championship, the 1962 U.S. Open, when he defeated Palmer by three shots in a next day 18-hole playoff. This win over Palmer began the on-course rivalry between the two golf superstars. In 1966, Nicklaus won the Masters Tournament for the second year in a row, becoming the first golfer to achieve this distinction, and also won The Open Championship, completing his career slam of major championships.
