Well here it is - the elusive 1946 PGA Championship ticket. Ben Hogan collectors have long sought to own this rarity from Hogan's very first Major victory. Though in Green Jacket Auctions' 12 years, we've never even seen one. Gilchrist's Guide to Golf Collectibles states the 1946 PGA Championship ticket as "None Known to Exist." Well, now we know that at least one example survives. 

The front of this ticket is in very good condition. The ticket has been removed from a scrapbook and has page remnants on the back. This can surely be easily removed by a conservationist, though we have made no attempt to do so.
