Collecting Vintage Golf Trading Cards

Trading cards have long been one of the most popular collectible items, especially with sports collectors and golf enthusiasts. When these cards were initially released, they were shipped in packs or sets, with each set containing anywhere from 10 to 50 cards. At their time of release in decades past, golf cards were inexpensive and often amateur collectors eventually disposed of them, believing they would have no real value 50 years down the road. It's because of this that some of the older cards are hard to find and therefore demand a higher price.
