The cast and crew of the hit Back9Network TV show, Golf Treasures, visited the famed Hurdzan Golf antiquities collection to tape a segment for the program – and they left with several one-of-a-kind items in their possession.
Hosts Bob Zafian and Ryan Carey, the minds behind Green Jacket Auctions, negotiated their way to ownership of a signed Arnold Palmer Latrobe CC Tractor and a vintage Merion CC wicker basket, while earning bragging rights following their nail-biting victory in a “friendly” game of Schoenhut Indoor Golf.
Said Dr. Christopher M. Hurdzan: “Bob and Ryan were far from mere salesmen. Rather, and refreshingly, they’re two gentlemen who have a genuine passion for the game, its history and a reverence for the people who, like my father and me, serve as its caretaker. Of course, it goes without saying that they know very, very well what they’re looking at, and for.”
“As a nearly 50-year collector of all things golf, transitioning to the selling side of the equation is not easy,” said Dr. Michael J. Hurdzan. “However, having observed the quality and decorum of the Green Jacket Auction arena, and incurring the pleasure of interaction with Bob and Ryan, it was not as difficult as I anticipated. Collecting is all about sharing, and my duty as I collector it to pass to others those treasures who have brought such pleasure to Christopher and I.”
