“Pin-Up” of the Week: 2013 Masters Tournament Employee Pin

As of this writing, Jason Day is currently leading the 2013 Masters Tournament.  But that will probably change quite soon.  There are a lot of souvenirs fans can purchase if they are lucky enough to actually be in attendance.  One of the key items collectors look for are pins.  For this year’s tournament there are a handful of different pins that have been made.  Most of them can be purchased from any of the souvenir stands located throughout the course.  As with major sporting events though, its the items not for sale which gain a lot of attention.  Take the above pin as an example.  This pin is what many of the employees are wearing during the 2013 Masters Tournament.  You probably won’t find these for sale at the gift shops.  The few employee pins that have found their way on to eBay have been commanding some major prices.  They have been selling for $75.00 to $100.00.

I’d like to see Tiger Woods win it, but after that two stroke penalty for a bad ball drop he sunk down the leaderboard a bit.  Another person that is getting attention is 14-year old Guan Tianlang from China.  He is the youngest player to ever play in the Masters.  It wouldn’t surprise me if Brian Gray of Leaf Trading Cards isn’t trying to get him to sign some cards for their next golf product.  They are always going after the young players.
