    1996 Greater Milwaukee Open Money Clip Used for Admission -- Tiger Woods Professional Debut. As this text is written, the sporting world continues to hold its collective breath, wondering if the most significant career in professional golf has finally met a challenge it cannot overcome. It's a question that has been asked more than once before, in the wake of personal scandal and a long battle with debilitating back injuries, but Woods has lifted himself off the mat each time, the sport's imperfect but unbreakable hero, and the greatest talent in its full history.

    But whether or not Tiger is able to yet again reprise his role as the phoenix rising from the ashes, this elite rarity from his professional debut a quarter century ago will retain its status as one of the most significant events of the post-war era. Heritage Auctions realized $37,200 for the highest graded full ticket for Woods' debut. This money clip was produced in much smaller quantities and could have gained access to virtually anything held at the tourney. These were given to high ranking officials, players and VIPs. The clip originated from a Miller Brewing Company worker. This is the first all-access money clip we have seen from the event. "Players Club 1996 GMO" is raised. A velvet Husar's House of Fine Diamonds case is included.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $5,000 - up.
