Authentic Masters green jacket that was found at a thrift store sells for $140,000

(By: Nick Cardona)

To get your hands on an authentic Masters Green Jacket you either have to be a member at Augusta National Golf Club or win the Master's.

But apparently, there was another option. You can pay nearly $140,000 at an auction.

Back in 1994, someone found an authentic green jacket at a thrift store in Canada and bought it for five dollars.

Augusta National confirmed that it was the real deal, but didn't say who actually wore it.

As for when the jacket was worn, most people agree that it was from the 1950's.

So, while it took Sergio close to 20 years to break his curse and get his jacket, it only took one golf fan a bid of $140,000 to get his own.
