1934 Masters program sold for more than $16,000
Old Masters memorabilia is as rare as it gets and this program from before World War II was pretty valuable to one Augusta resident.
The Masters, where you can buy enough food to feed a small army for $20, or spend $16,000 plus on a program.
OK, you can't actually buy a program at the Masters for $16,000 but you can buy one related to the tournament for that much.
In fact, that actually happened earlier this week in Augusta, according to this article in the Augusta Chronicle.
"The 1934 program – a gift from Masters co-founder Clifford Roberts to Dorie Wells and her late husband, Reginald – was sold this week to an Augusta resident who collects memorabilia from the Masters.
"The 1934 program was one of many gifts the Wellses collected during their friendship with Roberts. Reginald Wells produced and directed yearly Masters highlight films for Augusta National from 1961-82."
How cool is that job, by the way?
Wells struggled to part with the famous program but she knows it found a good home.
"The buyer and his wife met Wells this week, spending nearly three hours exchanging stories about Roberts, the Masters and World War II."
She also walked away with some coin.
"Wells did not reveal the purchase price of the items, but said the Masters program sold for a higher price than a 1934 program that fetched $16,000 in January at an online auction house."
