Bidding right now is at $33,180, though it appears that an auction in 2010 for the 1957 Green Jacket closed at $63,000. The auction ends April 7, so plenty of time for the price to rise.
There’s some pretty fascinating golf history alongside the listing, so click through to Green Jacket Auctions to either read up or make a bid. Particularly interesting is that after 1961, champions were only permitted to bring their jackets home for a year before having to return them when they went back to Augusta to defend their title. Prior to 1961, though, winners kept their jackets, which is why the ones now being auctioned date from that era.
