1901 W & F Faulkner Golf Terms Overview
This unique set featured various terms you might hear in the sport of golf. Appropriately named the ‘Golf Terms’ set, these cards were issued by W & F Faulkner, Ltd., based out of London England, for their Grenadier Cigarettes packages. The company also created similar sets for other sports, including football (soccer) and cricket.
The cards featured humorous color cartoon images against a white background. Backs of the cards, unlike other tobacco issues, were completely blank.
This set is very similar to another one produced around the same time period – the 1900 Clarke’s Sporting Terms set. That issue was bigger (50 cards) and included terms for not only golf, but also soccer, cycling, and cricket.
Collectors should note that there are two types of these cards. One has the Faulkner name on the front and the other does not, only calling the set ‘Golf Humour.’
