Description Print of the August 6, 1955 Saturday Evening Post cover "The Eighteenth Hole" on a folded sheet of paper with a Seagram's ad in the centerfold. Color offset lithograph on white paper. Image on the paper of six men in golf clothing--pants, shirts, hats, and shoes--on a putting green. Two men are crouched by the 18th hole staring at a white golf ball perched on the rim of the hole. Standing behind them are two men, one is marking the score card and the other is watching and holding a putter. Standing behind those two men on the left and right of the image are two male caddies; the man on the left is holding the 18th hole flag and a golf bag with two sets of clubs--clubs with white covers and clubs with green covers, and the man on the right is holding a golf bag with two sets of clubs--clubs with black covers and clubs with tan. The caddies are staring at each other. A sand trap is visible in the background. The image is green. Printed at the top of the page is black text: "The Saturday Evening // Post" on a white strip that runs across the top. The centerfold features ad text on the left page and an illustration of a town from a bird's eye view on the right page. Additional copy text is printed below the illustration on the right. The ad is selling Seagram's whiskey from "The House of Seagram."
