“Money can’t buy happiness” – they say. But for golfers, yes it can! Happiness means golf art and money can buy golf art. The love for golf for a real fan is not just a passing phase. You will notice that when they start to love the sport, they will dig into its history and value the people or anything that is connected to it.
However, since this hobby is not cheap, there are some things you need to keep in mind before buying golf memorabilia or collectibles. Check the following:
- Is it new or refurbished?
- Decide which one you want to collect or buy. You will need to know if the golf art you are buying is worth every penny that you are willing to spend. A new one can be costly since you will be the first owner. But there are instances that even the older ones have the higher value. You must do your own research before buying anything, especially online.
- Is it worth it?
- Buying golf art is indeed an investment so you better figure out your price range. Not only because you will spend a certain amount of money just to have it, it’s price as it gets older adds up as well. When time comes that you need to let it go, you, for sure will gain more than what you have spent.
- Is it legit?
- Going back to the first one on the list, if you are a real golf fan and if you did your homework, you should be able to identify whether an item is fake or real. There are few points you need to check – is the signature in the right place? Does the label have the right spelling? What about the serial number for that limited edition piece? There are so many to consider and to take note of.
Don’t forget to always check and make sure that you are purchasing from a trusted and reliable seller or store especially if the transaction will be processed online.
