High grade ticket from the 1st round of the 1935 Masters Tournament - then still called The Augusta National Invitation Tournament.

1935 was the second playing of the Masters Tournament, though it's widely regarded as the most important tournament in Masters history. Augusta National Golf Club was struggling financially, and the Augusta National Invitation Tournament had an uncertain future. But that all changed when Gene Sarazen hit the "shot heard 'round the world" - a double eagle on the 15th hole to come from behind and eventually defeat Craig Wood. Sarazen's albatross made headlines throughout the country, and officially put Bobby Jones' tournament on the map.

Tickets from the first few Masters Tournaments are exceedingly rare. Finding one in any condition is acceptable, but the offered example is a high grade Thursday First Round ticket. Bright colors, a low number. It would be hard to improve upon this beauty.
