Complete twelve-card set of 1931 W. A. & A. C. Churchman "Prominent Golfers" large-variety cards, highlighted by Hall of Famer Bobby Jones. Each card features a caricature of a professional golfer with a detailed background, and the golfer's name along the bottom. Inscribed as "A Series of 12" on the reverse, this large-card variety of "Prominent Golfers" is extremely rare and compliments its smaller-format 50-card version of the same year. Most advanced collectors would agree that this larger-card variety is about 25 times as rare as the scarce smaller version. Each card has been graded and encapsulated by PSA. The PSA grades are as follows: Two NM 7: #6 and 8. One EX-MT+ 6.5: #5 Jones. Four EX-MT 6: #2, 3 Cotton, 7, and 12. One EX 5: #9 Vardon. One VG-EX+ 4.5: #11 R.H. Wethered. Two VG-EX 4: #1 and 10. One GOOD 2: #4 Hagen. Compared to vintage baseball cards, golf cards are beginning to be recognized as offering an outstanding value. This is a very attractive and relatively affordable complete set of one of the premier golf issues of the era. Total: 12 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
