‘PGA 1’ number plate up for auction

11.08am 28th September 2021 - Salesroom & Memorabilia

Collecting Cars, the online auction platform dedicated to iconic, collectible and sporting cars, has just started the bidding for the personalised number plate ‘PGA 1’.

The highly sought-after number plate’s listing is live on the Collecting Cars website with six days currently remaining on its auction time. The current highest bid, as of September 28, is £15,000.

The PGA 1 number plate most recently belonged to Bob Daw, who ran the pro shop at Haste Hill Golf Club in Middlesex in the 1970s, before going on to set up his own retail golf store in Uxbridge called Bob Daw’s Aladdin’s Cave of Golf, which traded on the high street for over 25 years and at the time was considered the biggest golf retail shop in Europe.

Edward Lovett, founder of Collecting Cars, said: “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the supreme golfing fan. Personalised number plate listings are becoming increasingly popular on the Collecting Cars site, but it’s rare that we see one as special as this. After a weekend that saw the Ryder Cup dominating the global sporting headlines, ‘PGA 1’ is one of the most sought-after number plates in the world.”

Since its launch in 2019, Collecting Cars has sold over £148m worth of vehicles and attracted bidders from over 90 countries. For buyers, the premium on auction lots is levied at 5% +VAT and is capped at £6,000.
