Bobby Jones is a golfing legend who captured 13 major championships in his career before retiring from competition at the age of 28. Jones shuffled off this mortal coil in December 1971, but fear not golf fans, because there’s a current eBay auction that may pique your interest if you’re a fan of Jones and/or unique golf memorabilia.
Seems that the eBay seller known as rklassman started hearing voices in and around his golf clubs repeating the word Syringomyelia, which just so happens to be the disease that took the life of Jones at 69-years-old. Eventually the voice transformed into the ghostly apparition of Jones, and, well, I’ll let the auction description fill you in on the rest of the details.
Earlier this year, I began to hear strange voices come from my garage and specifically my golf clubs. The voice would repeat “Syringomyelia, Syringomyelia.” At first I had no idea what the ghost was saying, so I googled the word. Syringomyelia is the disease that paralyzed killed hall of fame golfer Bobby Jones. I asked the apparition are you Bobby Jones? The ghost then became visible dressed in 1950’s golfing gear. The ghost said yes I am Bobby Jones. I didn’t know what to do, so in panic I took the jar next to me and forced the ghost of Bobby Jones into the container. Thankfully this ghostly version of Bobby Jones was the paralyzed version of him and not the pristine athlete from the 1920’s.
As much as I like having Mr.Jones in my house, my wife is petrified of ghosts and is now forcing me to sell him. I have decided to sell Mr. Jones on ebay and donate half of the proceeds to the cure Syringomyelia fund.
Unfortunately Mr. Jones ghost can only be seen by true believers. If you are not a true believer bid with caution, for you may be unable to see him. I will not be giving refunds, so bid with caution as this is something impossible to authenticate and verify.
And here’s the rather nondescript jar supposedly filled with Bobby Jones’ handicapped ghost…
It’ll be truly astounding if the seller gets the $1,000 ‘Buy it Now’ asking price, or even the $500 starting bid, considering I can’t get the $5 I’m asking for my thermos containing the spirit of David Caruso’s career.
