Green Jacket Auctions Auction Spotlight: Francis Ouimet and Tiger Woods – Ends December 9th

greenjacketlogoGreen Jacket Auctions Winter 2017 Golf Auction is in progress.  800+ lots of amazing golf memorabilia and items worth anywhere from $25 to over $100,000, there is truly something for everyone.   Check out the auction now, register and bid at www.GreenJacketAuctions.com.  No single person has had a greater impact on the game of golf in America than Francis Ouimet. Collectors often point to the dearth of quality Ouimet memorabilia in the collecting market. Well, that’s about to change:

This auction includes items from the personal collection of Francis Ouimet himself. Even better, these historic relics are being consigned directly by the Francis greenjacket11-29-17Ouimet Scholarship Fund, which obtained Ouimet’s personal collection upon his death in 1967.

We are truly overwhelmed to work with the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund to offer a few select pieces from Ouimet’s personal collection. Highlights of his collection include:

  • Francis Ouimet’s 1920 US Amateur Runner-Up Silver Medal
  • Francis Ouimet’s Hagen Wedge with “Victory Notches” – One of the most prized possessions in the Francis Ouimet collection – his personal Hagen wedge with “victory notches.”
  • Francis Ouimet’s 1926 US Amateur Bronze Medal (Lost to Bobby Jones at Baltusrol) – This stunning bronze medal was awarded to Francis Ouimet when he lost to Bobby Jones in the match play semi-finals of the 1926 US Amateur at Baltusrol Golf Club.
  • Historic Francis Ouimet Personal Signed 1914 US Amateur Oversize Panoramic Photograph – Perhaps the finest early golf panoramic photograph in existence.
  • Francis Ouimet’s 1923 British Amateur Bronze Medal – This is the only significant medal ever awarded to Francis Ouimet for either the Open Championship or British Amateur, as this was Ouimet’s highest finish in these overseas events.

greenjacket11-30-17tTiger’s Back!
Love him or hate him, Tiger Woods still moves the needle in the golf memorabilia world. Though prices are down from Tiger’s peak, his items receive on average 400% more page views than similar auction lots!  In this auction, we have some excellent Tiger autographs for some very reasonable prices.

  • Tiger Woods Autographed Photo with Scarce “Tiger Slam” Notation – For a long time, Tiger himself didn’t quite embrace the term “Tiger Slam” – insisting he achieved the Grand Slam by holding all 4 Majors at once. That’s why it’s so amazing to see this piece, with an incredible “Tiger Slam” notation in Tiger’s own hand. It’s hard to get Tiger Woods to add any notation after his autograph, but offered here is perhaps the finest you’ll ever see.
  • Actual 14th Hole Flag from 2006 Open Championship signed by winner Tiger Woods – This is an actual tournament-used 14th hole flag from Tiger’s victory at the 2006 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. This flag has been beautifully autographed by Tiger.
  • Masters Tournament “Champs Flag” with Tiger – In this auction we have an extraordinary collection of “Champs Flags.” The one pictured here is a 2017 Masters flag that contains 20 high grade autographs of Masters Tournament Champions, including Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus in the center.
  • Tiger Woods Signed Ticket from Historic 2008 US Open Playoff- Gorgeous autographed ticket from the Playoff of Tiger Woods’ historic match against Rocco Mediate for the 2008 US Open title.

Other Highlights Include:

  • Greg Norman 1986 Claret Jug
  • Francis Ouimet’s 1920 US Amateur Runner-Up Silver Medal
  • Francis Ouimet’s Hagen Wedge with “Victory Notches”
  • One of the most prized possessions in the Francis Ouimet collection – his personal Hagen wedge with “victory notches.”
  • The Bunker by C.E. Brock, 1894
