The One BILLION Dollar Man

It was announced this week that Tiger Woods has become the first athlete to amass $1B in earnings.

What does a billion dollars look like? Those are bundles of $100 bills. Not as impressive as you might think but its not really what a billion dollars look like as what you could do with it, right?

Tiger Woods has accomplished more in the 13 years he has turned pro than most golfers do in a lifetime. Having turned professional in 1996 Woods has won fourteen professional major golf championships, the second highest of any male player, and 71 PGA Tour events, third all time, and 95 overall. He has more career major wins and career PGA Tour wins than any other active golfer. He is also the youngest player to achieve the career Grand Slam, and the youngest and fastest to win 50 tournaments on tour.

For collectors, their is a wealth of material to chase and most of it is very expansive. His most coveted RC comes from 2001 SP Authentic. It is signed on card and numbered to 900 copies. The routinely sell for thousand of dollars even when not graded.

Boxes of the product can still be found but you will pay a pretty steep price to gamble. SP Authentic is the only true numbered and autographed rookie cards of Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, and dozens of other superstars. With an average of 2 autographs and 1 tournament worn shirt card per box.Each box contains 24 packs per box with 4 cards per pack.
