A Masters Jacket Found In A Thrift Store?

You never know what you'll find...

Can we all agree The Masters jacket is hideous? I mean, when it shows up at a thrift store for $5 you're not too shocked if it blends in with all the other grandpa sport coats are you? 

Well back in 1994 that's exactly what happened and this past weekend it was auctioned by Green Jacket Auctions, a golf memorabilia website, early in the morning. The bidding began on March 22 at $5,000. Augusta National Golf Club confirmed its authenticity, according to the listing. However, the club would not reveal whose jacket it was.

"The jacket itself revealed few clues. The internal tagging definitively dates the jacket to the early 1950s - one of the earliest green jackets in existence. But the original owner’s name was tantalizingly cut out of the jacket," the listing states. "Its internal tagging from Cullum's department store in Augusta unquestionably predates the Cullum's tags inside 1957 Champion Doug Ford's Green Jacket."

It ended up selling for $139,348.80.

But this isn't the first time it's happened...
