Souvenir Flags sold during the Masters

In the early 1990's Augusta National started selling souvenir Masters Flags. I never bought any because they were very thin and when they were signed the autographs bleeded. I got almost all my autographs on Augusta National Scorecards until these nice heavy flag were introduced in 1997.

1997 Masters Flag

dscf2531.jpg

A 1997 Masters Flag This is the nicest Masters flag. It is a thick flag and it is fully embroidered in the middle of the Logo. This flag is popular because it is Tiger first major and it was sold before collecting Masters Flags became popular. Value as gone down a bit I think unsigned it is $2500-3000 and signed still around $4000.

Recently there has been several FAKE 1997 Masters flag being sold.  Just looking at the photographs it is hard to tell the difference  between an authentic 1997 flag and the fake ones.  Here are a few of the differences.

First, The grommets are much more goldish in color on the counterfeit compared the an authentic 1997 Masters flag.

Second, The flag size of the counterfeit is slightly smaller than that of the authentic Masters Flag.

Third, The yellow embroider stitching of the Masters logo is more defined with straight lines, and with the green border logo stitching it is even more evident.

Forth, The material of the flag is slightly different, more course on the counterfeit/fake.

5th  The center embroidery is more “corn rowed” than “flat” like my authentic 1997 flags  

6th  Authentic flag came with the White straps attached to the grommets.  I photograph above I removed the white straps because it was framed.  Most of the fake ones don't have the white straps. 

I hope this helps

I was recently informed by a collector that you can tell the difference between Pre-1999 and Post-1999 Masters flags by gap in the shadow stiching under California / Arizona.

This is a quote  from tourflags.com about these flags, "  This flag was NOT produced or sold by Augusta National.  A collector in Ohio had about 100 of them made in the early 1990s.  The purpose of making them was to obtain autographs of past champions.  The flags were then mailed to past champions.  I have yet to see a single unsigned flag.  While this flag is not official, it can't exactly be considered fake either, as the gentleman who had the flags produced did so years before Augusta National even had the idea to sell flags.  The flag is still rare and desirable "
