Bobby Jones Famous Golfer Card
« on: March 29, 2017, 04:45:30 PM »
Hi all,

Just to pick your collective brains...... I have a standard sized Bobby Jones Famous Golfers card by Churchman, nothing too unusual except that the lettering to the front is white rather than the standard golden brown colour (syrese I believe it's called?) and the photo just seems a bit more black and white. The card itself definitely feels and appears genuine as I've got a couple of sets of these and the feel of the card is exactly the same.
I once spoke to one of the guys from the LCCC and they hadn't heard of any fakes from the standard sized set so thought it might either be an error card or a proof. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of this as I really don't know what to think of it except to say that I really don't believe it's fake.

Many thanks in advance - loving the forum!

Hi Nathan,

I'll check my books when I get home later but I'm not sure there are any recorded varieties in this set. I think your best bet may be to send a scan to Martin Murray at research@card-world.co.uk and see what he thinks.

Regards,

Many thanks Sam - I'll do that. I'm just really curious more than anything.
