Golfing Cigarette Cards - Stroke Of Genius

Cigarette cards provide a valuable insight into the history of golf. Tom Morris helped to establish the very first Open Championship and witnessed the transition from the expensive "featherie" ball era through to the economical "gutty". This early golfing pioneer appears in a number of cigarette card sets in the first half of the 20th century. These cards are highly prized by golf collectors.

The maverick golfer Walter Hagen was not just an exceptional golfer he used his fame to highlight the folly of the snobby golfing establishment during the 1920s and 1930s.  High-grade Walter Hagen cigarette cards command high prices on eBay.

The early golf cigarette cards that fetch the highest prices are those depicting Bobby Jones, considered by many to be one of the greatest golfers of all time.

I've listed a small selection of golf cigarette card sets below from the cards I have sold on eBay over the last six years. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and I've tried to list as many card titles as possible.
