Smart eBay pickers know the little yellow Masters logo, and they know they will see dollar signs when they flip these gently used golf shirts on eBay. Pre-owned Masters golf shirts can sell for around $100 on eBay, even more around tournament time. Before eCommerce, these shirts could only be purchased at the Augusta National Golf Course in Augusta, Georgia, during the week of the Masters Tournament, which usually occurs the first week in April. Patrons must have a ticket to enter the gates at Augusta National to even be able to shop for Masters merchandise once inside the club.
The Masters Tournament was started by the famous golfer, Bobby Jones. He actually designed the course with architect Alister MacKenzie. The Masters is an official money event and part of the PGA Tour, and Augusta National is famous for not allowing women to play the course until 2012, when a few select women were allowed to play. Notable winners of past Masters tournaments include famous names such as Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Ben Crenshaw, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Ben Hogan, and Byron Nelson.
Masters golf shirts are now made under a variety of labels including Peter Millar, Bobby Jones, Amen Corner, and Masters Collection. The Peter Millar shirts usually bring the highest price, often in the $90-$100 range. Not a bad profit when these pre-owned shirts can be found in thrift stores or consignment stores for around $5, especially in the southern states where golf shirts are plentiful in resale shops. Masters golf shirts may be one of the top selling logoed shirts on eBay, followed by other Southern course logos including Sea Pines, Callaway Gardens, and Pinehurst. Golf enthusiasts may want to investigate the value of the golf shirts hanging in their closets and resell them on eBay if the price is right. The Golf Shirt Bible is a handy eBook, written by an experienced eBay seller of golf shirts for 10 years, that outlines what brands, logos, and colors of pre-owned golf shirts sell the best, and for the most money on eBay.
