What is your most unique Golf card?

Mine is a 1964 Topps John F. Kennedy #15 JFK Golf card, picked it up on Ebay last year. Best golfer out of 46?

    The Hawk is one of the all time greatest golfers; it’s a shame we live in a time where we all seem to have a Dory fish type attention span and forget things that happened yesterday let alone three quarters of a century ago. His story is the stuff of legend and he is as impactful an athlete as any player in any sport - truly. This is a pretty cool card of his and it’l dates from the year he won his 3rd US Open Championship and earned his first green jacket (of two).

  • That thing is gorgeous! Always surprised there isn't more interest in Hogan because his swing was so photogenic. Iconic

    Agreed. He supposedly witnessed his father commit suicide when he was a kid. He dropped out of high school to turn pro but really struggled and didn't win anything for ten years. Then he was almost killed in a car accident in the middle of his carrier. Doctors told him he might never walk again but he came back and won 6 more majors. The man didn't know the meaning of the word "quit." On top of all that, he had one of the most beautiful swings the game has ever seen.

    Nice card.

    Nice card.

    How about the fact that Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson were the original Noonan and DiNunzio?

    That’s right! They competed for the caddy scholarship down at Glen Garden down in Texas when they were both around 13-14!!!

    fav golf set, fav golfer growing up, loved the sig and the placement of it............i hit this card within seconds of seeing it

    the seller i bought it from got him to sign it at the Masters 20 years ago

  • Great looking Seve card and the signature is on point too. Guy had the magic until his back shut him down.

  • Here's another one of my favorite, unique golf cards. The 1979 Hall of Famer really captures Arnie's swagger.
