Part II of The Sam Snead Collection headlines Significant Golf Collectibles Event at Heritage Auctions
1951 Ryder Cup Captain's Trophy Presented to Sam Snead. Estimate: $30,000 - up.
DALLAS, TX.- On the heels of its $1.1 million debut in August, Part II the Sam Snead Collection is again expected to make headlines when his 1949 Masters Championship Trophy, estimated to bring $100,000+, and his very own 1951 Ryder Cup Captain's Trophy, which may sell for $50,000+, cross the block December 6-7 in Heritage Auctions' Golf Catalog Auction in Dallas.

"It was a great thrill to launch the Snead Collection in our August Platinum Night Auction, but this event represents a far more comprehensive offering from the personal collection of the PGA Tour's most prolific winner," said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Collectibles at Heritage. "This is unquestionably the most significant golf collectibles auction in over a decade."

The lots on offer range from victor's trophies and medals from Snead's record eighty-two PGA Tour victories, dozens of clubs used in building that peerless resume, contestant badges, match-worn clothing and much more. Notable are several iconic straw hats Snead made famous on the links, and Snead's first set of matched irons used on a PGA tour, circa 1935-36, anticipated to hammer at $10,000+.

The two-day auction closes in an Internet-only Extended Bidding format, with the Snead Collection ending Friday, December 6. Highlights from Day Two of the auction, closing on Saturday, December 7, include the personal collections of links legends "Long" Jim Barnes, Doug Sanders, Ellsworth Vines and rare Bobby Jones artifacts from the estate of his personal secretary at the Augusta National. Top-ranked offerings from this portion of the sale include Barnes' 1921 US Open Championship Gold Medal, Chick Evans' 1920 US Amateur Championship Medal, and a rare and important handwritten letter from Bobby Jones.

One of the most significant offerings of early golf ceramics derives from perhaps the most comprehensive private collection in the genre, with a consistent theme of rarity and spectacular condition throughout. Spectacular representations from Lenox, Royal Doulton, and O'Hara charmingly recall the turn-of-the-century game.

Additional highlights from the Snead collection include, but are not limited to:

• A Trophy Tea Set won by Snead at the 1960 Masters Par-3 Championship. Estimate: $20,000+.

• The 1969 Ryder Cup Captain's blazer owned and worn by Snead. Estimate: $12,000+.

• The Los Angeles Open Championship gold pendant won by Snead in 1950. Estimate: $10,000+.

• An early 19th century feather ball given to Snead by King Edward VIII. Estimate: $8,000+.
