Possibly one of the rarest collections of autographs of all time, this styrofoam “gallery control” hat used by Tournament Marshal’s for golf tournaments, was signed by virtually every player in the field from the 1966 Tournament of Champions. This Tournament was held at the Desert Inn Country Club in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 14-17, 1966 with an 18 hole playoff taking place on Monday April 18, 1966 between Arnold Palmer and Gay Brewer. Palmer won the playoff. This hat is signed by many members of the World Golf Hall of Fame and multiple Major winning golfers cluding. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Gary Player, Billy Casper, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Ken Venturi, Gene Littler, Ray Floyd. “Champagne” Tony Lema, Doug Sanders, Phil Rodgers, Gay Brewer (lost in playoff that year to Palmer), Lionel Hebert, Mr. 59 Al Geiberger, George Archer, Bob Charles, Bruce Crampton, George Knudson, Joe Campbell, and others. This is a one of a kind keepsake. It was worn by a gentleman named Barney Baxter, who was a friend of a friend of my Grandfather, named Pug Pilcher (maker of the “PUG-UGLY” putters). Pug was like a second Grandfather to me and he gave me this hat that he had gotten from his friend Barney. I received it back in the mid 1980’s. I have kept it around ever since, moving it from place to place. I don’t have much time or room for golf memorabilia anymore with having a wife and 2 kids. I want to sell this to someone that will be able to display it proudly as it is very very rare with all of these signatures. Please send me an offer on the hat if you are interested. Please ask any and all questions. Thank you for looking. The item “Arnold Palmer Jack Nicklaus Sam Snead AUTOGRAPHED Hat 1966 Tournament Of Champs” is in sale since Sunday, October 16, 2016.
