Tiger Woods’s Used Golf Clubs for Sale on EBay for $250,000

May 3 (Bloomberg) -- The irons Tiger Woods used to capture the “Tiger Slam” in 2001 are for sale on the EBay Inc. auction website. Minimum bid is $250,000.

The clubs were used by Woods to win the 2000 U.S. and British Opens and PGA Championship as well as the 2001 Masters Tournament, according to the listing, which was reported by GolfDigest.com.

Woods’s consecutive victories in golf’s four major tournaments has become known as the “Tiger Slam.” He’s the only golfer to hold all four titles at the same time.

According to the listing, the Titleist brand irons were “given personally as a gift from Tiger to the seller.” The seller, “aphotoshop1,” is listed as being from Vista, California.

Glenn Greenspan, a spokesman for Woods, and Mark Steinberg, the top-ranked golfer’s agent, didn’t immediately return e-mails seeking comment.

The clubs, which come with a certificate of authenticity, include nine Titleist 681 irons, 2-iron through pitching wedge, and two Tileist Vokey-designed wedges. The irons are stamped with a “T” on the back toe area, while the two wedges are both stamped in white with “Tiger” on the back, according to the listing.

While Woods signed an endorsement deal with Nike Inc. when he turned professional in 1996, the Beaverton, Oregon-based company didn’t introduce a line of irons until 2002.

The sale began yesterday and will last 10 days, according to the listing.
