Golf masters form a three-headed monster on the cover of this amusing Sports Illustrated Vol. 24, #14 issue. Dated 4/4/66, this colorful edition hit newsstands just in time for the 1966 Masters Tournament, held on 4/7-11/66 as is customary at Augusta. Period greats Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player are seen stuffed into a single green Masters champion jacket under the tag "The Masters: It's In The Bag", as between them they accounted for the previous six victories in Masters play from 1960-1965. Surprisingly well-preserved, this "dark print" era example is CGC graded (9.0) as "1/2" with none higher.
