Calvin Peete was an American professional golfer and one of the most successful African-American players in PGA Tour history, winning 12 tournaments over the course of his career. Here are five fun facts about his personal life:

  1. He grew up in Detroit but moved to Florida at age fourteen after being abandoned by his mother.
  2. He taught himself how to play golf as a teenager by watching others and practicing on public courses for hours each day.
  3. Despite having limited resources and financial means, he became the first black golfer to win on the PGA Tour when he won the Greater Milwaukee Open in 1979.
  4. He has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame and in 2006 was awarded with the PGA Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to golf.
  5. His career earnings totaled more than $7 million dollars, making him one of the wealthiest black athletes ever at that time.

Coasters are created with care and precision, featuring authentic cards that are hand-mounted onto high-quality ceramic tiles measuring just over 4×4 inches and .25 inches thick. The card that adorns your coaster is carefully chosen by Jake and Dean, although it may not always be the card pictured. The surface of the tile is then sealed with a bio-based resin for protection and finished off with a natural cork backing.
