Default Ogdens Vardon Hilton Golf cards rare?

Hi Folks,
Came across this pair of cards recently while chasing cricketers cards from the same set , nominally called Cricketers and Sportsmen. Released by Ogdens Cigarettes about 1900. There are 36 cricketers and 14 other athletes, including 3 golfers (Vardon, Hilton and Laidley). The cricketers are not easy to find, so I figure the golfers will also be well sought after, especially in the USA.
Any ideas on values, because I haven't been able to find any sales of the golfer cards in my searches? I also believe that rarer cards sold in the USA it is beneficial to have them professionally graded for best price? Graded cards are not so popular in Australia.
Any advice appreciated.

Hello Brian,
Congratulations, you have what I would describe as two of the three rarest golfer cigarette, tobacco cards in the world.
They are the first cigarette/tobacco cards with golfer images to be produced.
In 10 years of collecting I am only aware of one other Vardon and Hilton coming to light.
They are extremely desirable cards.

Getting them graded takes time, dollars, and predicting a grade is almost impossible, and don't forget the consignment % for the auction house if you sell that way, all relevant considerations.

Good luck if you decide to part with them

Hi Folks,

Just a quick note to say how much I appreciated the replies, both here and in PM, with some advice and some offers.

I have decided that I will be keeping the 2 golf cards, for the time being at least. Not easy to part with such rarities from the collection.

Thanks again and happy collecting to you all in the future.
Regards
