Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>It seems this board is dying on the vine, kind of a shame really. In an effort to contribute a hopefully halfway interesting thread, let's see how many cards of US Open champions we can put together. Should be an interesting week with Woods coming off a massive layoff.<br /><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/Golf%20Cards%20and%20Memorbilia/1930Pattreiouex-1.jpg"> <br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/Golf%20Cards%20and%20Memorbilia/benhoganexhibit-1.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Scott Sarian</b><p>I agree - it'd be great to see some more activity on the golf board here. <br /><br />Let me contribute with a card of mine of one of the first US Open winners - Harry Vardon. I'm reading "The Greatest Game Ever Played" right now, which has been a great read so far. Can't wait to finish, then to see the movie...<br /><br /><img src="http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f81/scooter0729/vardon.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Mike D.</b><p>Great idea. This is considered Bobby Jones rookie card and 1926 was the 2nd of his 4 U.S. Open championships with 2 runner-up finishes in an 8 year span. Simply amazing! One of my favorite Bobby Jones cards. I've posted my 15 card Bobby Jones basic set on the SGC registry for those interested in checking it out go here (<a href="http://www.sgccardregistry.com/registry.aspx?cat=5" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.sgccardregistry.com/registry.aspx?cat=5</a>). It is the last set selection in the "Other" category.<br /><br /> <br /><img src="http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee189/mdobrynio/1926LambertButlerBobbyJonesSGC88Fro.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>JW</b><p>Mike,<br />Hello. Your Jones set looks great on the SGC registry. I am still amazed at the condition of the cards in your set. I am also glad you added pictures to your set.<br />Great job,<br />Jason<br /><br />Direct link to Mike's Bobby Jones set (a must see!):<br /><a href="http://www.sgccardregistry.com/set.aspx?cat=5&set=1016&userset=2358" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.sgccardregistry.com/set.aspx?cat=5&set=1016&userset=2358</a>#<br />

Posted By: <b>Darren</b><p>Yeah, but he really struggled on the front 9. Hope he keeps it up. I pulled that card out of a box that I paid $60 for 3 or 4 years ago. It's a gem.

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>You're right. The second nine sure was something though. Here are a few more:<br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/Golf%20Cards%20and%20Memorbilia/1927churchmanshagensgc92.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/Golf%20Cards%20and%20Memorbilia/1901odgensvardon.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Joe D.</b><p>simply incredible.<br /><br />incredible. incredible. incredible.<br /><br /><br />Listening to the announcers gush over Tiger, one might think they are jut way too biased - that they give him more than his fair share of accolades.<br /><br />But if you watch him play.... he deserves all of the praise he gets and then some.<br /><br />We should all sit back and enjoy one of those once in a lifetime sports figures.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />Back to some US Open winners....<br />here is one that hasn't been posted:<br /><br />gotta love Ted Ray -<br /><br /><img src="http://www.internetville.com/images/albums/userpics/10001/normal_ray.jpg"><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>Tiger wins so much my wife and I almost don't want to see him win again. He is a nice guy and deserves every bit of accolades he gets. He is simply the best golfer today and most likely ever...and that is saying a lot.....(only time will tell about the "ever" part but it almost seems like a foregone conclusion)......So do his cards go up in value when he wins?

Posted By: <b>Joe D.</b><p>'So do his cards go up in value when he wins?'<br /><br /><br />Leon -<br /><br />The short answer is - yes they do.<br /><br />It also seems that golf cards in general go up during and around the major tournaments.<br /><br /><br /><br />Although I really like Tiger.... I can't bring myself to start collecting modern cards. Maybe one day I will - but for now I will stick to vintage golf.<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Darren</b><p>Upper Deck is no longer putting out golf sets. Add that to the fact that Tiger is other worldly popular and voila...instant shortage. The 2001 to 2005 issues are packed with autos and have outstanding photos of memorable moments. <br /><br />It was a great effort by Upper Deck and only time will tell how collector's of the future will look back on this run (the Tiger Run).

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>#1 vs #158. It's hard not to pull for Rocco a little bit. Either way, it's been good tv so far. <br /><br /><br />Best player to have never won a U.S. Open:<br /><br /><br />Sam Snead RC(these are really small)<br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/snead.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Darren</b><p>Paul, <br /><br />Is that a Pep? What year? 1947?

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>1948(?) Kellog's Pep I believe. I always thought it was 1948, but I could be wrong. Fairly tough for a postwar issue.

Posted By: <b>Darren</b><p>There are a couple with buy it nows on Ebay currently, one in vg for $150, and one in NrMt with staining for $400. Would you say these are fair prices? A bit high from where I'm sitting.

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>You know I don't really know what they have been selling for lately. The SMR has them pretty high(last time I checked), but that doesn't really mean anything. If the more expensive one didn't have the staining the price might be about right, maybe a little less.<br /><br /><br />Two time winner Ralph Guldahl, the last man to win the US Open while wearing a tie:<br /><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/guldahl.jpg">

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>I would be careful about paying $100 for a Pep....it might be the hype around the US Open or the golf ones (I don't know the golf one's values, even in general)...but the baseball ones go for about $10-$20 each in really nice condition (ex or better).....

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>This is from 2006(the last one I have). Don't quote me on this, but I think the Snead may be the most valuable card in the set. Prices could have come down a lot I guess, not sure. <br /><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z105/pstratt63/pep.jpg">

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>Man o Man....thats good money for a Snead Pep card. I know nothing about the golf ones but if the guide says it's that much then so be it...the baseball ones aren't anywhere near that much....I have 4-5 and paid about $10-$20 ea......This must be one of the few series where Golf will be mulitples of value of the baseball counterparts...

Posted By: <b>Darren</b><p>The price may have something to do with the limited availability of Snead in other issues--not too many period pieces of golfers, let alone great ones.

Posted By: <b>Scott Sarian</b><p>FWIW I have a Kelloggs Pep of Lloyd Mangrum in PSA 9 OC (pop report shows 8 total graded - 2 PSA3's, 2 PSA5's, 1 PSA6, 1 PSA7, 1 PSA8 and my PSA 9OC).<br /><br />SMR has the PSA7 listed as $400 and the PSA8 listed as $900, with no PSA9 price. I bought mine on ebay maybe 2 years ago for maybe $125 tops. Not that sale prices from 2 years ago would be totally valid for golf cards right now, but just wanted to add my two cents....

Posted By: <b>Darren</b><p>C'mon Paul, <br /><br />Did you really doubt that Woods was really hurt. I've never looked at him as dramatist--just a locked in, focused athlete.<br /><br />His injuries are plenty serious. If he needed leg speed and agility to take care of business, he'd be done.<br /><br /><br />I wish him good luck and all the best to get well soon.

Posted By: <b>paulstratton</b><p>I would never doubt that guy! Failed attempt at sarcasm. I knew he had to be hurting when Karlsson's caddie said he could hear Wood's knee making strange sounds during his backswing on Saturday.
