The 1935 Masters is quite possibly the most famous Masters Tournament in history.  Then considered simply a nice, small invitational tournament, Gene Sarazen famously put the tournament on the map with his double eagle on the 15th hole on Sunday that catapulted him to victory.  Only a handful of items from the 1935 Masters Tournament are known to exist.  With the exception of Sarazen's 4-wood and ball from his "shot heard 'round the world" that are currently in the possession of Augusta National Golf Club, this is certainly one of the greatest piece of memorabilia from the 1935 Masters.

Presented here is an actual ticket from that historic day when Gene Sarazen put tiny Augusta, Georgia on the map.  Only a handful of these tickets are known to exist, and perhaps none more significant than this.  This amazing badge has been signed by both Bobby Jones and 1934 Masters Champ Horton Smith, as well as 1928 US Open Champ Johnny Farrell; signatures that one can speculate were actually obtained on that very historic day at the 1935 Masters.  Even without the autographs, Gilchrist's Guide to Golf Collectibles lists this ticket at $10,000. With the added signatures of Bobby Jones and Horton Smith, who knows the value of this piece?
