Arnie's Army commemorative badges

Already up on eBay

Arnie's Army commemorative badgesCommemorative pins honouring Arnold Palmer were handed out to everyone attending the first round of the Masters on Thursday, and they are already appearing for sale online.

A number of "Arnie's Army" replica badges from the 1960s were already listed on online retailer eBay, with one seller seeking £96.

Palmer, who died in September at the age of 87, had a loyal group of fans, who became known as "Arnie's Army".

The white replica pins read "I am a member of Arnie's Army" in green writing with the Masters logo in the middle and the start date of the tournament at the bottom.

Palmer was honoured in a moving tribute before to the start of Thursday's opening round, and his Green Jacket was laid across the back of a white chair at the first tee.
