This is a complete deck of c. 1920s Foursome Tobacco playing cards that feature Harry Vardon, George Duncan, and James Braid golfing at Gleneagles.   Foresome Tobacco was a product of the Robert Sinclair Tobacco Company, Ltd, Newcastle-on-Tyne, England.  This vintage deck shows use, as they are dirty, but all 52 cards are present, none are bent, and they have a colorful graphic.  It should be noted that the cards do have a type of coating traditional with cards, so maybe they could be lightly cleaned?
