PALM BEACH, Florida — He may be gone, but Rush Limbaugh is certainly not forgotten.
The talk-radio superstar who died of lung cancer in February is now having some of his personal items sold for thousands of dollars online.
“For a limited time only, special one-of-a-kind beautifully framed collector’s items personally owned by Rush will be available, including golf clubs and polos,” the show stated.
“Throughout his life, Rush was dedicated to encouraging and supporting others. In 2021, 100% of all Rush Limbaugh Show Store proceeds will be donated to the families of our military, law enforcement and first responders.”
“Rush will always be Radio’s Greatest of All Time, an unwavering American Patriot … simply irreplaceable. Rush is a constant source of inspiration, positivity, strength and humor. His words of wisdom will live on in all of us, motivating us to never let go of our founding principles. We are dedicated to maintaining Rush’s legacy in numerous ways, including through the efforts of the Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh Family Foundation.”
Prices for the talker’s personal golf clubs range from $7,000 to $9,000 each, with some already sold out.
The wording for one ad states:
We have received many requests for special items personally owned by Rush. This beautiful custom-framed golf club was used by Rush to play courses all over the United States and world. He often spoke on the radio about his golf adventures and how much he enjoyed the game!
Each hand-framed club is one of a kind, including an engraved metal plate with this inspiring quote by Rush – “America’s Best Days Are Ahead!”.
100% of proceeds from the sale of Rush’s personal golf collection will be donated to the families of our heroes; law enforcement, the United States Military, and first responders.
• Hand-framed in the United States
• Rush’s personal PXG 0311XF 8 Iron with Fujikura Pro 75i shaft
• Titleist golf ball with Rush Limbaugh signature logo
• Personalized letter of authenticity from Kathryn Limbaugh
• Team Rush will personally call the buyer to confirm purchase details and shipping information
The prices for less expensive items in Rush Limbaugh online store all end with 76 cents, an apparent tribute to the year America was founded.
The show also noted: “Rush often said, ‘You are the people who make this country work!’ He believed strongly the United States is a land of opportunity for all no matter where you begin or what obstacles you face. Over the weeks and months ahead, in Rush’s honor, Kathryn will be naming Rush Limbaugh Great American Business Award recipients, highlighting the incredible hard work and risk it takes to start a small business.”
Rush’s wife Kathryn said on his program last month that response for the business awards has “been huge.”
“We’ve received many, many nominations over these last weeks,” she explained.
“Rush wanted to start this, actually, at the start of this year. But, unfortunately, he couldn’t. So he wanted to recognize small businesses throughout the country that really make our country work, and so we’re continuing it on in his honor. But the response has been quite overwhelming and wonderful at the same time.”
Limbaugh was diagnosed in January 2020 with advanced lung cancer. A few weeks later he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump.
“The Rush Limbaugh Show” went live in 1988 and has earned a long list of honors, including five times when Limbaugh was given the National Association of Broadcasters’ Marconi Award for “Excellence in Syndicated and Network Broadcasting.”
He’s also a New York Times No. 1 best-selling author and member of both the Radio Hall of Fame and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
He’s been a leader in conservative politics since his show started, and Fox News described him as “one of the most influential media members of the past 50 years.”
It was during his program’s last broadcast of 2020 that an emotional Limbaugh expressed gratitude to God, his family and his listeners.
“You don’t have any idea how … ” he said, pausing to hold back tears. “I know so many people think this program has changed their lives for the better. You have no idea what you all have meant to me and my family,” he said on the show.
“My point in all of this is to say thanks and tell everybody involved how much I love you from the bottom of a sizable and growing and still-beating heart,” Rush said.
