Oldest Bracelet WSOP Winners

The early days of the WSOP were dominated by middle-aged and older players, so it may not be surprising that the record for the oldest bracelet winner is still held by the first person to set it. Johnny Moss, the Grand Old Man of Poker, gave up the title for eleven years but took it back and then significantly added to it (ages listed in years.months.days format).
