What’s in Ben Hogan’s Closet?

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

The late great golfer had a forgotten stash of stuff in the clubhouse 34 years ago. The hand-me-downs turned into a nice stash of cash for one man at the recent Heritage Galleries auction.

John Shaw was glad to get a box full of Ben Hogan memorabilia  back in 1973 when he was a college student cleaning closets at Colonial Country Club in Dallas. He’d also been a Dallas Cowboys’ ballboy during the late 1960s, latching on to a few jerseys.

Never did he realize they’d be collectors items worthy of a major sports memorabilia auction.
