Hopefully many of you are following my 365 days of golf post over on the PSA message boards. If not, I would hope you might check it out.


Today is day 103 of my 365 days of posting. Here is todays topic which I thought would appeal to many of you over here as well

Enjoy!

Day 103- The Rarest of All Bobby Jones Cards - Kraj Zigaretten. Scans included!

First off, thanks to Nick who has graciously saught me out through message board articles like these and has emailed me many times in the past week months. He has some German related golf cards that either I have personally never seen in person, or..did not know even existed at all. I will try to showcase some of these over the next few days.

No better way to start it off than to share this card. It is literally the Holy Grail of Bobby Jones cards. This is the first one I have actually ever seen a photo of from a person who ACTUALLY owns this card.

The Abdulla Jones has got to be one of his more difficult cards. This is the much more difficult Kraj Zigaretten card from 1927. It is essentially a colorized version of the Abdulla card with of course a different back.

Old and new time collectors alike, enjoy the scans...and if ANYONE reading this actually owns this card as well, I would love to see you share your scan of your card example.

Dave -

That is an incredible card - and great information!

I haven't been following your 365 days of golf post (I didn't know about it).

Please post a link to it (or PM me with it).

I would really enjoy catching up on that thread.
