Before the tournament we took a look at the prices for an Upper Deck Tiger Woods autograph card. We got a small sample of cards from 2001, 02, and 03. With Tiger's return to golf this week at the Masters, I wanted to go through and track the pricing to see if any movement happens.
It didn't hurt that Tiger had a good first round, where he hit a couple eagles, but also left a few shots on the course. He currently sits just 2 shots off the lead at Augusta National - which will play much more difficult in the next three days. It all shapes up to a weekend of Tiger Woods back in contention, in his first tournament back since his cheating scandal hit the news in November.
Not a whole lot of Tiger Woods auto cards ended on Thursday. I am sure some of the people sitting on a Tiger auto will be keeping a close eye on the tournament, and many sellers have already put up autographs on 3 day auctions. I will update this thread after Friday's auctions end.
Round 2 Update: Tiger played a great round of golf in the 2nd round of the Masters. They moved a lot of the tees back and also put the pins in tougher spots, so scoring was going to be higher. He sits just two shots off the -8 lead held by Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter. Just one Tiger autograph card ended on Friday! So much for getting a lot of data! Hopefully on Saturday and Sunday we'll see more cards ending.
Round 3 Update: Woods putter started to give him trouble and he missed several short putts. Just a few shots back, Tiger has put himself in a position to win despite the 5 month layoff.
Round 4 Update: Once again, the putter and some wayward tee shots hurt Tiger in the final round. He even looked like he hit a few of his drives fat which I've never seen him do before. The putter, like in round 3, was not the strength of his game.
