1930 W. D. H. O. Wills "Famous Golfers" Complete Set (25): #1 PSA Set Registry!
Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $5,581
Incredible ultra high-grade complete 25-card set of 1930 W. D. & H. O. Wills "Famous Golfers" cards, highlighted by Hall of Famers Walter Hagen and Harry Vardon. Each card features a striking multicolor image of a professional golfer with a detailed background, and the golfer's name along the bottom. This is currently the number-one All-Time Finest set in the world on the PSA Registry! Each card has been graded and encapsulated by PSA. The set includes one PSA NM-MT+ 8.5, twenty-three NM-MT 8s (including Hagen and Vardon), and one NM 7. The PSA registry overall weighted GPA rating is 7.98. This is an extraordinary set assembled over a period of many years, with the express purpose of assembling the best set in the world. The PSA grades are as follows: One NM-MT+ 8.5: #16 De Montmorency. Twenty-three NM-MT 8: #1 Braid (HOF), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Hagen (HOF), 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20 Taylor (HOF), 21, 22 Vardon (HOF), 23 J. Wethered, and 24. One NM 7: #25 (last card in set). Seventeen of these cards are the highest-ever PSA-graded examples. Seven additional cards each have only one example graded higher. This is a remarkable high-grade complete set of one of the premier golf sets of the era. The SMR value for the individual cards is $7,225 (there is no SMR value for the NM-MT+ 8.5 grade, so the value of one example graded at this level was calculated using the NM-MT 8 value). From the Jack Zugay Collection. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $5,581
