This is an actual player pin/contestant's badge from the 1953 Masters Tournament, which was won by the great Ben Hogan. Only 70 golfers participated in the 1953 Masters Tournament, so surely only a handful of these small plastic player pins has survived. This player pin was issued to golfer #28, Milon Marusic, at the 1953 Masters. Marusic finished T38 at the '53 Masters.
