1925 Imperial How to Play Golf Overview

1925 Imperial How to Play Golf.jpgThis was one of several instructional sets produced internationally in the 1920s and 1930s. This particular set showed collectors how to play golf by using the appropriate stances and types of shots.

The set is somewhat popular as it featured actual images of golfers. Some instructional sets showed unknown subjects and are less collectable. This set included pictures of golfers George Duncan, Arthur Havers, and Abe Mitchell.

Fronts of the cards pictured black and white images of subjects against pale color backgrounds. The front included not only the player’s name but also a short title of what was being shown.

Backs offered a description of the illustration that was shown and indicated the cards were issued by the Imperial Tobacco Company of Canada, Ltd. While that was a Canadian company, these cards were printed in England.
