Autographed Tiger Woods' 2008 U.S. Open shirts for sale
FARMINGDALE, N.Y. -- If you still haven't found that perfect something to get your Dad for Father's Day, the folks at Upper Deck have an idea for you. For the first time, the sports memorabilia company is offering the actual golf shirts worn by Tiger Woods during the first three rounds of the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
But unless you are someone who's recently said, "What recession?" you might want to avert your eyes before you read the last sentence from this media release:
In addition to being autographed, each of the three shirts was hand-inscribed by Woods with “2008 U.S. Open” and the corresponding round in which he wore it. Paired with the second- and third-ranked players in the world – Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott, respectively – Woods opened with a 1-over-par 72 on the tough Torrey Pines course. In the second round, Woods shot a 3-under 68 with birdies on four of the first five holes. During Saturday’s third round, Woods made two incredible eagles on 13 and 18. The first-, second-, and third-round shirts will be listed for sale at $30,000, $40,000, and $50,000, respectively.
The shirts will be available starting Tuesday, June 16, at upperdeckstore.com. Below is a video of Woods as he signed each shirt.
