They don’t outnumber baseball card collectors but the golf collectible gallery is growing. A new web site makes it easier for fans to find golf cards, autographs and antique equipment.
As Tiger Woods prepares for another chase of golf’s major championships in 2008, fans have a new resource available in their quest to find golf collectibles.
BogeyShooters.com has been designed to make it easier for golf memorabilia collectors to search for items for sale on eBay. The site’s motto is “if you can’t play like a pro, you can at least collect like one.”
eBay listings encompass millions of items at any one given time and doing specific item searches can be time consuming and sometimes confusing. What BogeyShooters.com has tried to do is to make fans and collectors shopping for golf memorabilia or tickets to pro golf events on eBay feel like they have a little more control and give them a better browsing experience by bringing those items to one site.
Tickets for events like The Masters or U.S. Open can be almost impossible to find but passes to such prestigious events are almost always available via eBay. BogeyShooters.com puts those ticket sellers in touch with buyers.
Many of those who attend PGA Tour events are also golf collectors and while most of the attention devoted to sports collecting is focused on items like baseball cards or autographed footballs, the golf collectible market has been rapidly emerging as a very popular niche. Most collectors of golf memorabilia utilize eBay to locate hard-to-find items while sellers find it’s the easiest most successful way to market their items.
BogeyShooters.com offers several categories of golf collectibles for sale on eBay including antique golf clubs and balls, golf trading cards, autographs of past and present PGA tour players, golf caps and collectible ball markers. Collectors browse using a directory of the most popular categories and the site has put all of the items within those categories together in an entirely searchable format.
Some are available for immediate sale under the eBay “Buy it Now” feature while others use the traditional auction format. Those who have yet to sign up for eBay access can do so from the BogeyShooters.com home page.
