Masters Memories: Bamberger on the Experience of Playing Augusta National

One of golf’s most iconic symbols can now be yours – for a price.

Bidding is now open at GreenJacketAuctions.com for an authentic member's jacket from Augusta National Golf Club.

The size 44-long jacket is part of Green Jacket’s spring auction. Coincidentally, that’s the same size jacket Tiger Woods received in 1997 after winning his first Masters. This particular jacket is from a deceased member and dates from the 1990s.

Green Jacket co-founder Ryan Carey said the firm has sold about a dozen Augusta National member’s jackets, including 1934 champion Horton Smith’s, which commanded a whopping $682,229.

“It's becoming increasingly difficult for us to find original green jackets to sell,” Carey said. “There are certainly quite a few out there, but green jackets are so coveted by collectors that when they do become available they are quickly snatched up and tucked away into a private collection. I mean, can you think of a better display piece for an office or golf room?"

The current high bid is $8,952 after opening at $1,000. You have until April 11 to get in on the action.

Here’s the condition report:

“This jacket is exceptional and shows very little use at all. Having been tucked away in a private collection for years, it is our understanding that this Green Jacket has never before been offered for public sale.”
