What can be said about the 1934 Masters Program that hasn’t already been said? It has solidified its place as the most iconic artifact from the inaugural Masters Tournament, or, quite possibly, any Masters Tournament. If there ever was a golf memorabilia Hall of Fame, this program would be a unanimous first ballot inductee.

It is our belief that the 1934 and 1935 Masters programs are destined to appreciate dramatically in value in the coming years. These programs were selling for $10,000 in the late 1990s, and can still be obtained for only a fair premium above the 1990s valuation. That will certainly not last.  

For the advanced collectors, this is actually the rarer of the two different types of 1934 Masters Programs. This is the one without the final scores inside; meaning this program was actually sold at the 1934 tournament and was not one of the leftover copies. We'd estimate that only 1/4 to 1/3 of 1934 Masters programs are this version. 

The program is in exceptional condition. A very clean copy with crisp interior pages, and beautiful cover. One of the finest we've encountered.
