View Full Version : FS: 1901 Ogden's - Old Tom Morris PSA 5 and J.H. Taylor PSA 7 - rare high-end golf!

I have a couple of old golf cards in fantastic condition up for sale:

1) 1901 Ogden's Guinea Gold Old Tom Morris - PSA 5 - This is one of the most iconic golf cards of one of the founding fathers of the game, and the black borders on this card are nearly impossible to find in this sort of condition! Along with the 1900 Copes card, this Old Tom card is viewed as being one of the best early golf cards to own! Only 31 of these have been graded by PSA, with only 9 higher than this PSA 5!

The black borders on this card are in fantastic condition, as you can see in the scans. And the back of the card is nice and clean - any scuffs you see in the scan are on the case and not on the card itself whatsoever. This card was graded years ago before PSA went to the half-point system; might this get a bump to a 5.5? I have not submitted it for a bump, and it looks like a solid candidate for the bump!

Price is $600 delivered / insured

2) 1901 Ogden's Golf #475 C base card of J.H. Taylor, in incredible PSA 7 Near Mint condition! PSA has graded only 15 of these cards, and there are 4 PSA 7's and none higher than that. There's only one on the SGC charts (an SGC 40).

There have been two previous sales of this Taylor card in a PSA 7, per Vintage Card Prices (vcp.com) - one sold in 2007 for $374, and the other sale in 2009 was for $261.

The card has great black borders with just a few touches of white along the edges. The back is in nice shape as well (there is one very minor black scuff on the back; any other marks the scan may show are actually on the PSA case and not the card itself). These Ogden's are super tough to get in PSA 7 condition because of the super-sensitive black borders, so don't let this one pass you by!

Price is $200 delivered / insured

Thanks for looking...
