1957 Masters Tournament SERIES Badge #5008 with Original String - Doug Ford Winner


In sports history there is nothing like calling your success in advance, and then producing. In the 1932 World Series Babe Ruth pointed to the stands, and then produced a home run. At a Thursday media gathering prior to the 1969 Super Bowl Joe Namath "guaranteed" that his heavy underdog New York Jets team would be victorious, he followed up leading the Jets to victory and earning game MVP honors in Super Bowl III. In the golfing world Doug Ford made a similar boast, predicting two weeks prior to the 1957 Masters that he would win with a score of 283. It took a Sunday charge, shooting a final round 66, capped by a birdie 3 at the 18th, where he holed out from the bunker. Oh yes, in winning Ford shot exactly 283. Offered here is a vibrant green series badge #5008 with the string intact. There is creasing present and pencil notation of the original owner's name on the ducat. This '57 series badge will surely be a fine addition to any collection.
