GREEN JACKET AUCTIONS

www.greenjacketauctions.com

“Green Jacket Auctions was formed in early 2006 by prominent golf

collectors Ryan Carey and Bob Zafian because of the difficulty in

 buying and selling quality, rare golf memorabilia in the United

 States. At a time when auction houses were routinely setting record

 prices for sports memorabilia, golf memorabilia had been left to the

 wayside. For the golf collector, this meant scouring baseball-heavy

 auction catalogs in the hope of finding a handful of golf items up

 for auction. The added fact that these golf lots often contained

 inaccurate or misleading information led to much frustration to golf

 collectors. After its first auction in the summer of 2006, Green Jacket

 Auctions quickly became the place to find authentic golf antiques

 and golf memorabilia. It's now a few years later, and Green Jacket

 Auctions has never looked back.

The reputation of Green Jacket Auctions and its two principals, Ryan

 Carey and Bob Zafian, has enabled the company to do business

 with a "who's who" of golfing elite.  Green Jacket Auctions has

 bought, sold and appraised golf memorabilia for PGA Tour stars,

 Major Championship winners, golf museums, famous golf clubs, and

 celebrities. Its auctions have been discussed on THE GOLF CHANNEL

 and on Sirius XM Radio's THE PGA TOUR CHANNEL, and have been

 mentioned in periodicals such as Sports Collectors Digest and Golf

 International Magazine.

This reputation, and resulting exposure, has enabled Green Jacket

 Auctions to sell golf memorabilia to collectors all across the globe -

 13 different countries at last count. Due to increased demand from

 collectors, Green Jacket Auctions officially launched its

 Authentication services in 2008 and golf collection Appraisal

 services in 2009. After initially authenticating and appraising

 primarily golf autographs, Green Jacket Auctions has more recently

 been enlisted to assist with large collections of both individuals and

 institutions.

The guys behind Green Jacket Auctions  Ryan Carey - A practicing

 attorney by trade, Ryan has always had a true passion for all things

 golf. A few years ago, when searching the globe for rare golf

 memorabilia, it became abundantly clear that more needed to be

 done for the golf memorabilia industry. After brainstorming with

 another widelyregarded expert in golf memorabilia, Bob Zafian,

 Green Jacket Auctions was born.

Ryan was a contributing author of the 2006 GilChrist's Guide to Golf

 Collectibles. His expertise and knowledge of areas such as Masters

 history and memorabilia has been extensively quoted by

newspapers, magazines and sports websites; his personal favorite

 being his substantial involvement in the cover story on Masters

 Green Jackets in Golf International Magazine's 2008 Masters Preview

 Issue. Ryan's golf memorabilia expertise spans an array of

 categories, including Masters Tournament memorabilia, golf flags

 antique golf clubs and balls.

Bob Zafian - A true pioneer in the golf memorabilia industry, Bob’s

 collecting interests actually started with baseball. In 1978, Bob went

 to work for Roy White, then outfielder for the New York Yankees. This

 provided him with invaluable opportunities to meet many great

 athletes, including Thurman Munson, Reggie Jackson and others.

 Over the next couple decades, Bob’s collecting interest grew, and

 he sought-out and obtained thousands of autographs at sporting

 events, rock concerts, charity functions and, most notably, golf

 Tournaments. It was during this time that Bob became widely-known

 throughout collecting circles; if you wanted an autograph that was

hard to find, and wanted to be sure that it was authentic, Bob was

 the first call to make. This fact was never more apparent than when

 he was enlisted to help sell one of the most famous pieces of Rock

 and Roll memorabilia in existence – “The John Lennon Album”. The

 John Lennon Album was the album that the Beatles  legend

 autographed for would-be killer Mark David Chapman earlier on the

 same evening of that historic murder.

The album fetched a whopping $460,000 – a record price that has

 never been topped and likely never will. During the last 20 years,

 Bob’s personal and professional focus has been on golf autographs

 and golf memorabilia.

 He has personally amassed one of the most impressive golf

 autograph collections around. Impressed with this extensive

knowledge of golf autographs, leading authenticator PSA/DNA

 asked Bob to come on board in 2007 as a consultant/authenticator

 strictly handling golf autographs. He remains in that capacity as golf

 autograph authenticator today.”
