    1930's Titlist done by Andy Gilbert

    Just got this a few days ago. Per usual, Andy & Vicki hit it outta the park. From 1930's vintage blank I got on here from jacobyguy. 3rd from left in the first pic. Really happy with it. I'm NOT a photog... Pics won't do justice.

    This was a case that sprang to mind after seeing John post a case he called "Chocolate Love" some time back.
