1962 US Open Championship at Oakmont CC Ticket #572

The newly turned pro Jack Nicklaus and hometown favorite Arnold Palmer batted it out in a playoff, with Jack emerging in the seemingly David over Goliath result at that time. The appropriate and historic setting of Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania was the main stage for two leading actors, who at the time were opposite in nearly every way.

The grounds ticket #572 is offered here from June 16th, the tournament that launched a lifelong friendly rivalry between Nicklaus and Palmer. Print is strong with the Oakmont squirrel on the front and a local paint company dark blue advertising on the verso. For reference purposes we offered a ticket from this tournament's playoff round in out 2022 September Auction that received 29 bids and an achieved price of $6,039!

The ticket category had been underappreciated in the sports memorabilia industry for many years, until a surge in prices only a couple years back seemingly caught up to its value. A clean June 16th ticket from this historical event remains a challenge, with this being your opportunity to own one of the scant few examples that weren't turned into stubs. Please see photos for a detailed condition report.
