Presented here is the exceedingly rare and coveted early 1960s Augusta National "Champions Dinner" Wedgwood plate. These rare plates have long been used by Augusta National as the dinner plates at the annual Champions' Dinner during Masters Week. A great example of this can been seen below in a photo of the 1968 Champions' Dinner, which depicts these plates being used. The picture comes from page 34 of the 1973 book The Masters: Profile of a Tournament (The one with the fancy Green Jacket cover). In addition to being used annually at the Champions' Dinner, these plates were also originally awarded as prizes at the Par 3 Contest in the 1960's before crystal was first awarded by Augusta National.

These elusive plates were made in very limited quantities in the early 1960s (this is plate #40), and frequently command top dollar when found. Comes in its original Asprey-Garrard box.
