Chasing Tiger autographs

1997 Masters badge signed by Tiger Woods

You know who is playing his first stroke play event of 2009 which means everyone at Doral was chasing down a Tiger Woods autograph---and probably not getting one.

We’re not saying Tiger never signs at the course—he’s been known to sign a few while walking when not in competition.  But you’ve got to be very lucky.

If you were smart, you started following him when he was just getting started on tour.  He was already well-known but until the 1997 Masters, he wasn’t impossible.

Iconic Memorabilias current auction includes  a 1997 Masters badge with a very clean Tiger autograph on it.  Its pretty symbolic of Tigers career and with unsigned Masters badges from that tournament in demand, this one should generate a lot of interest.  They also have some other golf memorabilia, including a few other Tiger autographs.

We suspect there were be a lot of other players signing this week too.  Tiger sort of has that trickle down effect.
