What can be said about the 1934 Masters Program that hasn’t already been said? It has solidified its place as the most iconic artifact from the inaugural Masters Tournament, or, quite possibly, any Masters Tournament. If there ever was a golf memorabilia Hall of Fame, this program would be a unanimous first ballot inductee.

It was once widely reported that approximately two dozen programs still exist from the then-called Augusta National Invitation Tournament in 1934. Our experience makes it quite clear that a larger number do exist, likely closer to 3 or 4 dozen. Regardless, the 1934 Masters Tournament program is exceptionally rare, and coveted by almost all collectors.  

The offered example is new to the hobby. The cover has some issues, but actually displays quite beautifully. Normal cover wear (delamination) front and back. A cover tear has been repaired. Fair to Good overall condition.
