In the ticket world, the term "badge" is now synonymous with the Masters Tournament. But this was a truly novel concept when it debuted in 1961. 

Offered here is a high grade original badge from that 1961 Masters Tournament. The 1961 Masters was won by Gary Player. This rare and coveted badge is a PSA 8 Near Mint, which is a Pop 1 on the PSA Population Report, with only 3 examples ever getting a higher grade.
