1928 W. A. & A. C. Churchman "Men Of The Moment In Sport" (Large) #7 Bobby Jones - PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $2,666
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. One of only two examples graded at this level by PSA, with none graded higher. Extremely attractive high-grade example of #7 Bobby Jones, the key card from the 1928 W. A. & A. C. Churchman "Men Of The Moment In Sport" large-series. This 12-card multisport issue features only two golfers. Each card from this set features a caricature of the greatest athletes of the day from their respective sports, and the athlete's name along the bottom. Inscribed as "1st Series of 12" on the reverse, this large-card variety of "Men Of The Moment In Sport" is extremely rare and compliments its 50-card smaller version of the same year. Most advanced collectors would agree that this larger variety is about 25 times as rare as the scarce smaller version. Jones is not just the most valuable card in the set, it also one of the most well known and popular of all Bobby Jones cards, and of all 1920s golf cards. This example is a crisp gem, bright and clean, both front and back, with bold colors, perfect registration, and four razor-sharp corners. The reverse is centered very slightly to the left. This is an extremely high grade example of the key card from the 1928 Churchman "Men Of The Moment In Sport" set and one of the most highly prized golf cards of the era. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $4,200. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
