Presented is an outstanding near-complete set of 1986 Miller Press golf cards consisting of sixty-six cards (out of sixty-nine), entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. This set features color photographs of some of the most famous golfers of the era, including Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, and Greg Norman. This complete set currently ranks second overall on the PSA Set Registry with a 7.21 GPA. Twelve of the cards are highest-graded examples, including seven cards that are the only example graded at their respective level with none higher. Cards from this set were never issued in packs and could only be hand-cut from sheets, which is why some cards only qualify for Authentic due to irregular cuts. PSA Grading Composite: MINT 9 (4 cards): Green, Jacobsen, Renner, and Watson. NM-MT+ 8.5 (8 cards): Eastwood, Glasson, Irwin, Reid, Simpson, Stewart, Sutton, and Watson. NM-MT 8 (29 cards): Bean, Blackmar, Burns, Couples, Edwards, Grady, Green, Kratzert, Levi, Mahaffey (Statistical Leader - Greens in Regulation), Mize, Mudd, Nelson, North, O'Grady, Peete, Pooley (Statistical Leader - Scoring), Simpson, Sindelar, Sindelar (Statistical Leader - Birdies), Smith, Stadler (Statistical Leader - Par-Breakers), Streck, Tway, Weibring, Wiebe, Wood, Zoeller, and Checklist (ST). NM 7 (11 cards): Floyd, Hoch, McCumber, Nicklaus, Norman, Pavin, Peete (Statistical Leader - Driving Accuracy), Purtzer (Statistical Leader - Sand Saves), Rinker (Statistical Leader - Eagles), Stadler (Statistical Leader - Putting), and Wadkins (ST). EX-MT 6 (9 cards): Bean (Statistical Leader - Driving Distance), Kite, Langer, Mahaffey, Maltbie, O'Meara, Rinker, Strange, and Thorpe. EX 5 (2 cards): Pooley and Stadler. Authentic (3 cards): Forsman, Pohl, and Trevino. According to the PSA Set Registry listing, this set is missing three Statistical Leader cards of Craig Stadler, John Mahaffey, and Tom Purtzer, although we are not sure that they exist. This is an outstanding near-complete set of this rarely encountered golf-card issue with several notable highlights. Total: 66 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
