Melt The Wanamaker
By Kickntrue on 8/18/09
Cash4Gold.com (I know you've seen all the annoying ads on tv) put out a press release on how much the Wanamaker Trophy would be worth melted down.

The 27 pound trophy (I've seen other reports saying it's 44 lbs. but frankly, 27 makes a lot more sense) contains about $5,500 worth of precious medals- the most of any golf major trophy.

As much as the ads bug me- and as much as people have to know they're getting ripped pretty good to do this- I've got to hand it to Cash4Gold.com. That's pretty clever to figure this out and get their name in new places. I guess I'm a little surprised it's not a higher number. I know sterling silver is no gold, but only $5k?

cash 4 gold wouldn't make any money if they actually paid you what the precious metal is really worth, I've heard they pay about a 1/4 of the true value, but I think its alot less. how much does the scaled down trophy weigh that the player gets to take with them??? I heard the commentators talking about it the other day, what was it 3/4 scale? somebody's got to know
