We are huge believers in the future of PSA encapsulated golf memorabilia. The rest of the sports collecting world has long been appreciating PSA authenticated and "slabbed" items, but the golf world has lagged behind. We hope that this "Modern Collector" auction will help shine light on some items that we believe will play an important role in the next generation of golf collecting. 

Tickets and badges from tournaments won by Tiger Woods are obviously highly collectible. Nowadays, when Tiger wins a tournament, people make a point of saving the ticket. But tickets from Tiger's amateur and early professional days are much more difficult to find.

Offered here is a PSA 10 Gem Mint Sunday ticket from Tiger's victory at the 1996 US Amateur at Pumpkin Ridge. This tournament was Tiger's record 3rd straight US Amateur victory, and he declared professional only days after the tournament. 

This 1996 US Amateur Ticket is one of only 2 examples to ever receive a PSA 10 Gem Mint grade.
