There is simply nothing more iconic in modern golf than a Green Jacket. This
is an original Augusta National member's Green Jacket from 1975. The owner's
name, a longtime Augusta National member, is brilliantly stitched on the
inside of this Green Jacket. This jacket was made by the Hamilton Tailoring
Company of Cincinnati, Ohio, which has been the primary, but not exclusive,
producer of Green Jackets.
state that authentic Green Jackets are extremely rare would be a vast
understatement, as only a handful have ever been sold publicly. Even casual
golf fans have heard about Augusta National Golf Club's extreme protection
over the Green Jackets given to their members and Champions. Much of this
information, however, is more myth than reality. It is true that Augusta
National Golf Club is currently relatively protective over the Green
Jackets, but this was not always the case. In the past, many members and
past Champions have owned multiple Green Jackets and would often keep their
jacket at home, not at Augusta National Golf Club, Also Sam Snead
admittedly owned several Green Jackets over the years, and even reportedly
"lost" one, much to the chagrin of Clifford Roberts. Additionally, many
members and Masters Champions have ordered replacement jackets over the
years, including known examples like Billy Casper, Byron Nelson and Fuzzy
Zoeller, not to mention numerous Augusta National members.
For these reasons, Green Jackets are at the same time very rare, yet
occasionally obtainable. And here at Green Jacket Auctions, we have spent
hundred of hours over the last several years tracking down and cataloging
every known Green Jacket. Our intense research has resulted in determining
the whereabouts of almost all Green Jackets known to exist in private
Surely no item better
signifies Major Championship golf than a Green Jacket. Whether this Green
Jacket ends up in a museum, on display at a country club, or in the winning
bidder's closet, it will surely be the centerpiece of any golf collection.
