1901 Ogden's Guinea Gold PSA-Graded Complete Set (18)
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $2,666.25
Exceptional complete set of eighteen cards from the 1901 Ogden's Guinea Gold (Unnumbered Series of 18) set, highlighted by golf legends Tom Morris and Harry Vardon. Each card is graded and encapsulated by PSA with the exception of three cards rejected for numerical grading by PSA as "Recolored." In addition to being among the earliest of all golf-card issues, the Ogden's Guinea Gold cards are considered by many serious collectors to be among the most difficult of all vintage golf-card issues to collect in high grade. Their black border design makes these cards extremely susceptible to damage. This is an outstanding collection of these important early golf-card rarities with almost all in very high grade. The PSA grades are as follows: Two NM 7: Balfour (playing) and Vardon v. Braid (vertical). Seven EX-MT 6: Hutchings, Morris, Rowe, and four Vardon v. Braid variations (4 w/ no spectators, 4 w/spectators hedge, 5 w/ spectators right, and 5 w/ spectators right and back). Three EX 5: Auchterlome, Massey, and Robb. Two VG-EX 4: Low and Vardon v. Braid (2 golfers). One VG 3: Tait. Three ungraded (recolored): Balfour (standing), Hutchinson, and Paxton. This is an outstanding collection for this issue, very carefully assembled by a serious longtime golf-card collector. The SMR value for the group (not including the one VG 3 and the three ungraded cards) is $1,685. Total: 18 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,666.25
