The 1986 Masters Tournament was one of the most important golf tournaments of the past 50 years. Offered here is a rare contestant's pin from the 1986 Masters. Well, it's not just any player's contestant's pin, but that of Gene Sarazen. Gene Sarazen's double eagle in 1935 put the Masters Tournament on the map, so it's only fitting that he was still around 51 years later to see Jack Nicklaus cap off the greatest career in golf history at the '86 Masters. For the advanced Masters collector, this is Sarazen's actual contestant's pin from the 1986 Masters, which comes from Sarazen's estate.

Letter of Authenticity from Gene Sarazen's Estate (and signed by his daughter)
