Golf season is quickly approaching and that means golfers will be preparing their wardrobe for the season. Polo-style shirts are a men’s wardrobe essential because they can be worn as casual sportswear, in some office environments, and of course to play golf. Many golfers look to eBay to purchase pre-owned golf shirts because of the large and unique selection.

Pre-owned golf shirts can easily be found in thrift stores, consignment stores, estate sales, yard sales, or church rummage sales. Used golf shirts can often be purchased for $1 or less and sold for an average of $30 on eBay. New golf shirts can be purchased at a discount at off-price stores including Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, or Steinmart. Some popular brands include:

Bobby Jones

Burberry

Callaway

Hugo Boss

Lacoste

Nike

Peter Millar

Ralph Lauren

Scotty Cameron

Titleist

Under Armour

Vineyard Vines

The more expensive the brand is new, the better it holds its value on eBay. For example, some used Peter Millar shirts have sold for over $130. Pre-owned Scotty Cameron shirts have sold for over $100. Used Vineyard Vines shirts can sell for around $50 in excellent condition.

Some golfers like to wear shirts with specific tournament and course logos. Some of the more popular logos include:

Bethpage

Harbour Town Links

Kapalua

Kiawah Island

Masters (Augusta National)

Oakmont

Pebble Beach

PGA Championship

Pinehurst

Sawgrass

Sea Pines

Shinnecock Hills

Spyglass Hill

US Open

Color is also important. Often, white, yellow, and light-colored shirts show more dirt and stains than darker colors, so they are more difficult to resell. Bold and festive colors like purple, orange, teal, and lime green are good sellers. Stripes and unusual patterns are also popular – many golfers are looking for something unique and different.

Golf and polo shirts can be a lucrative product line and many sellers offer them year round with global shipping to increase sales.
