A Representative Sample from The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection of Important Ryder Cup Team Crests/Patches - as Worn by Contestants of both the American and the England and/or European Teams from 1937 Until Present Day are featured below.
GORGEOUS HAND SEWN OFFICIAL BLAZER CRESTS AS PRESENTED TO RYDER CUP CONTESTANTS
The Gorgeous Bouillon Construction was Meticulously Hand Done, using Metal Threads in both Gold and Silver on an Elegant Suede Background. The Ryder Cup Players often wore these on their Blazers before, during and after the Champions Dinner. What the Ryder Cup Competitors are Fighting So Hard For is pictured lower right - the Stunning Ryder Cup Trophy.
RYDER CUP CHAMPIONS 1969 - EACH IS WEARING HIS ISSUED BLAZER AND CREST - TEAM INCLUDES CAPTAIN SAM SNEAD, LEE TREVINO, RAYMOND FLOYD AND JACK NICKLAUS - THE USA AND EUROPE TIED IN 1969 BUT AMERICA RETAINED THE RYDER CUP BASED ON THEIR VICTORY TWO YEARS EARLIER.
Additional Ryder Cup Team Crests/Patches also Worn by Contestants on their Blazers at the Site of the World Event are featured just below.
Of Historical Interest, is the report that Beginning in 1993 Officials - Representing the Ryder Cup - apparently Determined to Eliminate the Year of Competition from the Crest and place only the Site of the Competition on the Crest. Unfortunately, they seem to be leaving it up to those who are interested to Figure Out The Year of the Event on their own. These Officials made an arguably questionable decision.
THE FIGHT FOR THE RYDER CUP CHAMPIONSHIP CULMINATES IN THE WINNING OF THE RYDER CUP TROPHY - BY EITHER THE AMERICAN OR THE EUROPEAN TEAM
Currently, these Ryder Cup Crests, as well as many other early ones, are in The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection (a.k.a.) The American Heritage Collection. At some point in the future the entire Collection may be shared with another noted collector interested in preservation of this aspect of Ryder Cup History.
