Kip Ingle:

Kip Ingle brings to The Golf a wealth of experience in the golf memorabilia industry. At the age of seven (7), Kip began obtaining in-person autographs, even choosing to attend college in Florida, in part to be near numerous golf tournaments and spring training to obtain signatures. Following graduation, he spent 10 years in front office sports management with the New York Yankees as editor of their team publications and with the St. Louis Cardinals as the team's Director of Public Relations. Currently Kip is involved with professional golf management through his company Kip Ingle & Associates. Throughout the year, Kip staffs golf tournaments where he is involved with various aspects of tournament operations. While at these tournaments, he is actively involved in obtaining golf autographs and monitoring signature tendencies of the sports biggest stars. The place to find Kip in April is at Augusta National, where since 1993, he has been a regular along the rail of the driving range pursuing his passion: Masters Champion's autographs. Each summer, Kip is employed by the United States Golf Association to use his professional sports management skills in tournament operations for the U.S. Open. Through the years, Kip Ingle has gained the trust of countless veteran collectors and auction houses in the sports autograph and memorabilia industry. Kip's familiarity with the autographs of professional golfers is relied on by James Spence Authentication (JSA) to validate signatures. One of his more memorable hobby dealings was locating and purchasing the finest grouping of Masters numbered badges from the Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus run of Masters Championships dating 1962-66. Amazingly each of these badges were single digit numbered, highlighted by the badge #1 from Arnold's victory in 1964. After enjoying these badges for a number of years Kip sold this un-improvable grouping to one of his many advanced golf collecting clients.
