Sam Snead’s 1949 Masters Championship Trophy realizes $143,400, and his 1969 Ryder Cup Captain’s Trophy sells for $131,450 during Heritage Auctions’ Dec. 6-7 sale in Dallas.
Today’s golf man’s might be enamored by Tiger Woods, but before him one of the greatest was Sam Snead. The Sam Snead Collection of championship trophies, clubs and more will be the centerpiece items in Heritage Auctions’ Platinum Night auction to be conducted during the National Convention.
Earl Weaver, Cal Ripken Jr. and Eddie Murray always hold a special place for this auction thanks to their Triple-A connection to Rochester, N.Y. Plus, now is the time to get those golf autograph requests – it’s Masters week.
The Golf Auction previews its spring auction of early Masters badges, signed books and flags and a giant cache of cards. Gems include a 1934 Masters badge, 1936 program and lots and lots of Tiger Woods.
