Fresh off the excitement of this year’s truly mesmerizing Ryder Cup, we are quite pleased to offer a historic collection of memorabilia from the 1999 Ryder Cup. The ’99 Ryder Cup at Brookline will go down, to Americans at least, as perhaps the most dramatic and famous Ryder Cup in history. Facing what seemed like insurmountable odds, Captain Ben Crenshaw led the US squad to an epic comeback that will forever be etched into Ryder Cup lore. We are currently offering the finest collection of 1999 Ryder Cup memorabilia to ever to reach the auction block. This memorabilia comes from a past President of the PGA who was a key figure at the 1999 Ryder Cup.

1999 Ryder Cup Etched Magnum Wine Gift from Captain Ben Crenshaw

Offered here is an etched Magnum bottle of wine that was a gift to the American Team and Official Party at the 1999 Ryder Cup. This bottle was a gift from Captain Ben Crenshaw. The entire bottle is etched, and it addressed to the PGA President that received the bottle from Crenshaw (we photoshopped out his name so as to lend him some privacy in this sale). The bottom of the bottle is etched "From Ben & Julie Crenshaw." This 14" tall 1.5 liter full bottle of wine is 1994 Beringer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This unopened bottle of wine has reportedly been stored properly since the 1999 Ryder Cup.
