1948 Masters Tournament SERIES Badge #2729 w/Original String - Claude Harmon Winner

This pristine ornamental scalloped edge series badge was on the scene when Winged Foot's head professional Claude Harmon became the only player not on the regular PGA tour to ever win the Masters. In the process Harmon tied the then low score for the Masters with 279, 9-under par. His margin of victory over Cary Middlecoff, in second place, was 5 shots, and this stood as a record until 1955 when Middlecoff won by 7. This was also the last Masters that Bobby Jones played in.

Offered here for bidders is the prized bright red with jet black print 1948 Masters Tournament series badge #2729. This ideal exemplar remains in unimprovable condition, with the bottom hole punch the only indication it was used to take in the tournament week. So difficult to locate, the ticket in this offering is one of only a small handful of 1948 Series tickets The Golf Auction has seen, this being the finest of those for both front and back. The Golf Auction is fortunate to have had an example in our 2022 July Auction, which unsurprisingly commanded a premium in the realized price of $12,122. Please note that there is pencil notation on reverse of ticket that reads 'E.H. Ward - Richmond Hotel', see photos. Please don't miss this opportunity, we don't know when it will come around again.
