Collector's Item: Accenture/Tiger Woods advertising

The Tiger Woods/Accenture connection is starting to disappear. Better look fast as evidence of this marketing marriage is dissolving quickly.

Thursday, I was going through Chicago's O'Hare airport on my way to Gate L4 when I stopped to talk to some workers removing an Accenture advertisement. This ad featured Tiger Woods.

I asked them what they were going to do with the old ad as it was approximately 5 ft. by 8 ft. in size. They had several other ads on their cart, too. All of these also appeared to be Accenture ads as well but I can't be sure.

The workers said these ads have to be destroyed. One worker then beat me to my next thought. He immediately said "Yeah, otherwise I'd be selling these on EBay".

So, I guess if you have any Tiger/Accenture co-branded items, you should hang onto them. I doubt anyone will be making any more of these items and the supply of existing ones may be declining quickly.

The teaming of Tiger and Accenture was a long-standing two-some. Erasing the connection will take some time, too.

Disclosure: I have a few shares of Accenture stock. I don't have any TW branded materials, though.
