A 1934 Augusta National Invitational/Masters Tournament Ticket sets record for highest price for a sports ticket with a winning bid of $118,598.63 during the Master’s Week Spring Auction on TheGolfAuction.com.

The 1934 ticket was the finest example known in the collecting industry. The Golf Auction’s Kip Ingle proclaimed, “A record-setting number like this can only be achieved when you have multiple passionate collectors wanting a seldom seen piece of golf memorabilia.” With the sale of $118,598.63, this 1934 ticket is the highest known price paid for a sports ticket. With fewer than ten examples of this 1934 ticket, this exact ticket was the finest known of them all.
1934 Augusta National Invitational (Masters) Final Round Sunday Ticket #1929 was sourced by The Golf Auction in 2012 from an original-owner non-collecting family. This family was counted as friends and neighbors of the Bobby Jones' family in the Tuxedo Road area of Atlanta (Theodora Black). The 1934 first year ticket is the most spectacular of all Masters badges and tickets, and one of the most highly prized of all Masters collectibles.
