The golf clubs and custom "NetJet" bag personally-owned by the 'Oracle of Omaha'  




Warren Buffett's golf clubs and custom "NetJet" bag sold for $39,671 according to Boston-based RR Auction. 


The lot is comprised of Buffett's personally-owned and used set of golf clubs; that includes his customized golf bag and fourteen clubs, given to the one-time fiancée of his granddaughter.  



The bag itself features his name embroidered in gold on the front flap, "Warren Buffett," with the logo of Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary NetJets on both sides; attached is a plastic 2005 Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference tag, with affixed green labels, "Buffett" and "88." Wrapped around the handle of each club is a Warren Buffett property tag, most reading: "Omaha Country Club, Warren Buffett, Omaha, NE 68152."



The golf clubs include: nine Ping Eye2 clubs (wedge, sand wedge, and irons 3-9), an older Ping putter, Callaway Heaven Wood, Callaway Divine Nine, and two Orlimar Trimetal drivers (13° and 16°). Inside one of the bag's pockets are an assortment of tees, markers from Augusta National and the Seminole Golf Club (two of the world's most exclusive golf clubs), and bag tags from the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara.



The consignor notes: "The clubs were purchased for Warren by the director of the Buffett Foundation and given to Buffett sometime in the 90s. They were his only set of clubs from then until now. The bag was custom made for Warren by NetJets (a Berkshire subsidiary). Warren personally handed me the clubs inside his home in 2016. He gave them to me after my clubs had been stolen. I was engaged to his granddaughter at the time and have had them in my possession up until this point." 



"A reminder that more deals are done on the golf course than in any boardroom," said Bobby Livingston, Executive VP at RR Auction.  





Highlights from the sale include, but are not limited by:



Eddie Van Halen'  Frankenstrat' Art Series guitar played by EVH at the Toyota Center in 2008 sold for $18,750. 



Benjamin Franklin document boldly signed as president in 1786 sold $17,500. 



Albert Einstein hand-painted silhouette portrait of Einstein's distinctive profile sold for $15,678. 



Howard Hughes vintage pearl-finish signed photo sold for $7,871. 



The Fine Autographs and Artifacts auction from RR Auction began on May 24 and concluded on June 12. For information, visit the RR Auction web site at www.rrauction.com.
