View Full Version : WTB: Cope's Golfer "An Enthusiast"

11-30-2011, 08:21 PM
Looking for a low grade 2-4 version of "An Enthusiast" from the 1900 Cope's Golfers set.

I have about 10 or so duplicates in the set..... I will check this weekend to see if one of the duplicates is the card you are looking for.

12-02-2011, 04:30 PM
Sounds good, thanks!

12-04-2011, 10:28 PM
my dupes in the set are 12, 18, 27, 37, 42, and 50.

I don't have a dupe of the card you are looking for.

Do you have their grades and an asking price? Thanks for taking the time to look through your collection.

I scanned the front and backs of the cards and they are shown below.

I don't really have price in mind..... do you have anything to trade? any Old Tom?

This is my first venture into Cope's. I am unsure on the scarcities and such so I don't want to lowball you on any cards. I have seen "Lost Ball" go in the range of 30-40 in similar condition both graded and ungraded $37.50. The others I'm pretty unfamiliar with at this point, but any insight or useful links would be much appreciated.

Its been a while since I have tracked the prices on these.

The Robertson and the Laidlay would be the most expensive of the bunch I am sure.

Maybe Dave - or someone else here could give us an opinion on fair value.

Alrighty, sounds fair. Only Lost Ball card I can find currently http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Copes-Golfers-Cigarette-Card-1900-Lost-Ball-/260875779043?pt=UK_Collectables_Cigarette_Tea_GumC ards_CA&hash=item3cbd687be3#ht_500wt_1202

Hi guys,

Joe - those are some great looking cards for the grades!! As a comparison, I sold some very similar PSA 2's on eBay earlier this year (yours might be even a bit nicer), and they went in the $35-$40 range if I remember. Mine just had a bit of tape on the backs, knocking the grade down. Sample of one attached.

If I had to put estimates, I would say the common 2's would be $40-ish, the 4 might be $100-125? (I bought a Ball in a PSA 4 earlier this year for about $115.) And if you're going to sell the Robertson, let me know, since that looks nicer than the one in my set!

I agree with those prices, the Robertson is a toughie, and a world golf hall of fame member, his only card. I should go for a bit more.

Dave -

where would you ballpark($) the Robertson card at?

12-10-2011, 12:21 PM
Robertsons typically sell in a close proximity to the values of the Morris Sr and Jr (at least when I have owned and sold some) So....the Robertson 2 - based on eye appeal etc, (it looks darn nice for a 2) I think is $125-150 ish on the high end, but at least $100

I'd be interested in the Robertson in the future, but at this moment am just putting my foot in the water with Cope's. Looking for a set to collect with my dad (I'll buy him this first card, and then we will get each other cards on future holiday's, birthdays, etc.).

Lost Ball for $40.00?

12-11-2011, 08:40 AM
$40 for the 'Lost Ball' sounds good.
Please add $5 for shipping/insurance.

You can paypal the money to me at joe@internetville.com

If anyone else is interested -
The three other commons are $40 each
The Laidlay is $125
The Robertson is $200

With any purchase add $5 for shipping and insurance.

Scott gets first dibs on the Robertson - because he asked for a shot at it.
All other cards are first-come first-served.

If Scott passes on the Robertson it will be first-come first served
(if you want it post here and you will be put next in line).

I will ship it out tomorrow and will PM tracking info to you.

Card arrived. Expertly shipped, super quick, and most importantly LOVE the card! It's one thing seeing it in a scan, but holding it and looking at it in my hand makes me smile :). Thanks a ton Joe!
