Augusta National famously gives its members some impressive gifts. Offered here is one of the coolest ever offered. Quite amazingly, this plaque commemorating the famous Eisenhower Tree at Augusta National is actually made from the wood of the fallen tree. It measures 8 1/2" x 11 1/2" x 1 1/4" thick in a nice gift box. You can still smell the strong aromatic scent of this 125 year old Loblolly Pine made famous by President Eisenhower's request for its removal. Very impressive. We previously sold one in the Winter of 2016, and it sold for $5,570.
