“Pin-Up” of the Week: 1997 Masters Tournament Commemorative Pin

Tiger Woods hasn’t had the best golf game in about five years.  For the first time in his career, he is no longer one of the top 100 golfers in the world.  I believe he’s #104 right now.  He isn’t even on the cover of EA Sports PGA Tour anymore.  Rory McIlroy has taken that over.  Despite his fall from grace, his collectibles still carry significant value.  Collectors sure haven’t forgotten the things he accomplished while on top.  Recently, I saw a non-certified autographed picture with staple holes in the corner sell for $133.00.

Pins from the Masters Tournament are quite collectible.  They don’t even need to be rare employee or press pins either to garner that much attention.  The commemorative logo pins they sell at the souvenir stands you’ll see up for sale the most often.  Tiger Woods became a household name after winning the 1997 Masters, and that’s why this pin sells for $100.00 today.  This was Tiger’s first major victory, winning by twelve strokes over Tom Kite.
