1914 Marsuma Golf Overview

1914 Marsuma GolfThis interesting series is unidentifiable from the fronts to collectors not familiar with them as no text is present. The cards are only identified on the backs as an issue from Marsuma Pure Virginia Cigarettes packages from the Marsuma Company.

Fronts picture black and white golfers and, as identified on the backs, several of them were to be put together to form a complete picture. While it references a total of seven pictures, there are actually 50 cards in the set that make up those images.

Actual golfers were used in the photographs and are named on the backs. As several cards made up one image, there are not a total of 50 different golfers pictured in the set. The release includes several Hall of Fame players, such as Harry Vardon, James Braid, and J.H. Taylor, among others.

One distinctive feature of the cards is that they have a pale gold colored border. Finding them in high-grade condition is often difficult.
