GOLF & GOLF CARDS
A golf-like game is recorded as taking place on 26 February 1297, in the Netherlands, in a city called Loenen aan de Vecht, where the Dutch played a game with a stick and leather ball. The winner was whoever hit the ball with the least number of strokes into a target several hundred yards away. Some scholars argue that this game of putting a small ball in a hole in the ground using golf clubs was also played in 17th-century Netherlands and that this predates the game in Scotland. There are also other reports of earlier accounts of a golf-like game from continental Europe, and China.
The history of golf trading cards is sporadic, especially early on. There were some golf cards produced in the early 1900s while Goudey produced a couple of cards mixed-in with other sports stars in their Sport Kings set in 1933. After this there were pretty much no golf cards produced until about 35 years ago. Though they do not have the value as other cards such as Football or Baseball, they do have some value.
It would be hard to count the number of cards made over the years but
More Sport Memorbilia has a wide variety of cards mostly with Hockey and Baseball, we are happy to be able to say that we do have a limited selection of Golf Cards, with more to come!
