Heritage Sports News: John Daly’s Claret Jug Highlighted in Platinum Night Auction Ending Saturday

Heritage Platinum Night Sports Auction Ends February 24-25

Famous for his slogan “Grip it and Rip it”, and his charismatic and electric persona on and off the course, American links legend John Daly was one of the most prolific sports figures of the early to mid-1990’s. Heritage is proud to present the most significant artifact from his brief but brilliant reign in the form of his personal model 1995 British Open Championship Claret Jug, one of the most distinctive and coveted awards in the entirety of professional sport.

Costantino Rocca’s seventy-foot birdie putt on the 72ndhole to tie Daly established the 1995 Open as one of the most famous in history, but Daly would dominate the four-hole tiebreaker to claim his second and final Major Championship.

“Daly had a second trophy made for display in a museum,” explained Chris Ivy, director of Sports Auctions at Heritage. “This is that trophy. Daly has publicly stated that he’ll never surrender his own, so this sale represents the collecting community’s only opportunity at ownership.”

This is just the second Claret Jug that Heritage has had the privilege to offer, the first deriving from the historic offering of “The Sam Snead Collection” in August 2013. Snead’s 1946 Claret Jug commanded a winning bid of $262,900 in that event.

The historic memento is currently open for bidding in our February Platinum Night Auction, and it will close in Extended Bidding format this Saturday, February 24th at 10:00 PM CT at HA.com.
