Bid for Arnold Palmer’s sweater from the 1964 Masters


SHARE THIS STORY

With a little over two weeks until Christmas, it's getting close to crunch time this holiday season. And if you haven't finished your shopping already, you might be getting desperate to find that perfect gift.

Well, if that someone you're shopping for is a golfer, may we steer you in the direction of Grey Flannel Auctions? They have an auction, closing Dec. 17, with some incredible collectibles on offer.

Maybe you'd love to gift someone a putter Sam Snead used later in his career to putt side-saddle style? The 37 1/4-inch putter was not only used by Snead to win senior major championships, but also made by hand by the golf legend.



But perhaps the biggest item in this auction is a sweater worn by Arnold Palmer when he won the 1964 Masters, his fourth green jacket and final major championship. The striped cardigan was previously on display at the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame at the old Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh.

There are plenty of other great items up for grabs in the auction, which closes in eight days.

Happy bidding!
