More Treasures from the Philadelphia Private Golf Museum at Heritage Auctions

For the second time in as many Heritage Sports Collectibles Signature® Auctions, golf collectors will be treated to a wide assortment of equipment and awards from two centuries of the sport’s history. The material represents the labor of love of the consignor, Dr. Barry Glaser, who has spent the past two decades assembling the most significant private collection of golf memorabilia known.

Among the more noteworthy pieces are the golf ball used by iconic early Open Championship winner

The evolution of the sport’s equipment is recounted by an intriguing assortment of rare, early golf balls and clubs, with examples of each dating back as far as 1830.
