1928 J. Millhoff Co. "Famous Golfers" PSA-Graded Collection (11) Including Jones Hagen

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $3,819

Extraordinary high-grade collection of eleven cards (nine different, representing over 40% of a set, and two duplicates ), including golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen (twice), from the highly prized 1928 J. Millhoff & Co. "Famous Golfers" set, each graded and encapsulated by PSA. Of special note is the fact that this is the first golf-card set to feature professional women golfers in the same series as men golfers. The PSA grades are as follows: One NM-MT+ 8.5: #2 Walter Hagen (only three graded higher). Four NM-MT 8: #2 Walter Hagen, 13 Joyce Wethered (only one graded higher), 20 Bobby Jones (only one graded higher), and 22 Macbeth (one graded higher). Four NM 7: #1 Boomer, 12 Guedalla, 13 Joyce Wethered, and 26 Harris. One EX-MT 6: #9 Tolley. One EX 5: #18 Havers. This is an outstanding high-grade collection of eleven cards from one of golf card collecting's most highly prized sets. The SMR value for the individual cards is $8,600 (there is no SMR value for the NM-MT+ 8.5 grade, so the value of the one example of Walter Hagen graded at this level was calculated using the NM-MT 8 value). Total: 11 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $3,819
