You've seen the USGA Contestant's Badges that are produced for US Open players each year, but offered here is the most coveted USGA Badge of the all - the USGA Champion's Badge. These badges are only produced for Champions of USGA Major Championships. In the past decade, a couple examples from lesser named Champs have surfaced, but offered here is certainly the finest we've seen.

Babe Zaharias, of course, was not only only of the greatest golfers of her era, but she was among the finest athletes in history. Zaharias won the US Open 3 times (1948, 1950, 1954), but would've only been awarded one of these USGA Champions badges. 1 1/3" x 1 5/8".
