For those who know this set.....

Are these the only golfers in it? Just the Vardon and Hilton or are there more golfers?


Cricketers And Sportsmen is the adopted title for the set in question.

50 cards known.

Only 3 golf subjects:
H.H. Hilton (Amateur Golf Champion)
Harry Vardon (World's Golf Champion)
J.E. Laidlay (Scotland's Amateur Golfer)

There are 36 cricket subjects.
The remaining 11 subjects are a mixture of athletes & cyclists.

Read the entire thread from go to woe again - and love the conclusions reached after the fantastic collaborative effort...

They are all certainly hard to find - still looking for 11 of the 36 cricketers, which also must have formed some form of Redemption offer as many I have seen have the Ogden's base removed from them (I've got 8/25 cricketers in my collection missing the Ogden's Tab on the base of the cards, where they have clearly been cut off/removed)

Is anyone aware of any 'competition' or redemption associated with the Series? 

Also, while I don't have any of the Golfers (unfortunately), I've got 10 of the remaining 14 (7 also without Ogden's tabs) and would love to obtain the 11th card - Harry Hutchens; with the descriptive caption (A Veteran Professional 'Ped') - Pedestrianism was an early version of race walking

If anyone out there cares to assist...

As for the Golfers I live in hope!!!

Yes folks lightning can indeed strike twice in the same place!!!

The wonderful land downunder has come up with the goods again, with the rare Ogden's Cricketers & Sportsmen golf cards Vardon and Hilton being unearthed in Australia for the second time. Pity the Laidley card wasn't there to make the trifecta, but 2 out of 3 isn't too bad I guess. A real thrill to add these to my collection, which normally only consists of cricket cards.

Hope you all enjoy viewing what has to be amongst the rarest of golf cards, and spur us all on knowing that there are great cards still out there to find!! Happy hunting to you all.
