A Tiger Woods backup putter, autographed on the face, is expected to bring a hefty six-figure price at auction this weekend.
Golden Age Golf is offering the putter, signed some 17 years ago and bids have already approached $250,000.
On October 1, 2005, Woods auctioned the putter at a fundraiser called The Tiger Woods Learning Center Block Party, which was held at The Grove in Anaheim, CA. The event raised money for the foundation’s first TGR Learning Lab campus.
The most recent Woods backup putter to reach the auction block was over a year ago when a different one sold through Golden Age for $393,300.
Trading Card Database and Sportlots have announced a strategic partnership that will give TCDB members pricing history data from Sportlots to tie into their checklist database. Users will also be able to view current and historic pricing trends for any card sold on Sportlots.
Sportlots will have access to TCDB’S non-sports checklists which the company says will allow for quicker expansion of its marketplace into that arena.
TCBD is a crowd sourced archive of cards. Established in 2008, the site has over 16 million different trading cards catalogued. Sportlots has nearly 80 million cards in its inventory, from over 700 sellers.
Despite some recent reports and rumors, we’ve learned Josh Luber still has a role Fanatics Collectibles.
He is now a strategic advisor to the company but is not involved in day-to-day operations there or with another company property, Zero Cool, that he also helped launch.
He’ll also sit on a Fanatics Collectibles board when it’s formed.
The company continues a hiring push on the card and collectibles side.
One of the baseballs from Mike Trout’s recent streak of seven consecutive games with a home run wound up in the hands of a fan in Cleveland who was at the game, celebrating his 11th birthday.
The Angels came calling and wondered if he’d give the ball back to Trout in return for a visit–and well, of course he did…
Talk about a great present!

TriStar Productions recently signed Houston Astros top prospect Hunter Brown to an autograph deal and the 24-year-old pitcher was quickly put to work signing baseballs and other items.
He’ll also be appearing at an upcoming TriStar Show. Company VP Bobby Mintz chatted about that–and also why one show guest’s autograph was so terrible, they’ve never had him back.
