The 41 scorecards in this lot date between 1911 and 1930. Many cards simply
are dated "192_", and "193_", so the golfer need only put in
the last digit of the year. The cards marked 193_ by definition would
allow for a "0" to be written in, so they were included by the auctioineer as part of this collection. Some cards have had the date filled in by
the golfer. Not all of the cards have dates. In those instances when they don't, the auctioneer made a
concerted, conscientious effort to catalog the cards based on
physical and stylistic factors—and the nature of the card. The
auctioneer makes no guarantees that every one of the 41 cards is dated
accurately. But the effort was made to do so.
A few of the cards in this lot were once in a scrapbook setting so there are marks on
the back of the card caused by their removal, but they are still
great scorecards and exceedingly scarce.
Note: All the cards in this lot are pictured. They are presented
in mylar page holders that are pictured first the front side, then the
back side, and then the next page and repeat. In some instances cards
are out of their sheet protectors for a closer look. These are not duplicates. They are
the same card(s) that are shown in their mylar sheet protector(s).
A rough data base that lists all the cards in this lot was prepared.
It is shown in the very last image of this lot. A few
notes about the cards were entered into this data base, but the notes while far from complete or consistent are hopefully helpful.
This is another great lot of scorecards that date in large part to the wood-shaft era.
