This card is a post card advertising the lithograph of artist Robert S Simon entitled “Masters of the Millenium”.

The back of the card is hard to read, so here is what it says:

The Master of Montage Art, Robert Stephen Simon, has created a magnificent work.

2001 Upper Deck
SP Authentic Golf

In 2001 Upper Deck issued “2001 SP Authentic Golf”.  The full base set has 136 cards with several different subsets. The true base cards are the first 44 cards in the set and are called SP Authentic. Other base subsets, include Fairway Greats, Major Players and Ambassadors of Golf, for a total of 90 more base cards. All 90 cards were also produced in a Gold parallel numbered to 500.
This issue is still one of the most popular modern golf products to-date.   2001 SP Authentic Golf still offers a lot to collectors many years after the initial release.  In 2020, a hobby box was selling for near the $5,000 price.

Here is the 2001 Upper Deck SP Authentic Box:

2001 Legends Sports Memorabilia Inc
LSM Athlete's Gallery
Gold Border

#NNO             2 1/2"  x  3 1/2"

This card comes from the "Legends Sports Memorabilia" magazine which was first published in the Winter of 1988.  LSM magazine covers were drawn by several well-kown artists of the time and the artwork is amazing.  The paper stock of the cover and the beautiful artwork made these magazines suitbale for framing and soon became sought after by the numerous sport collectors of that era.

The sports figures featured on the covers range from past legends to current legends in the making.  The first edition featured Ruth, Mantle, and DiMaggio on the cover and in the articles.  This first edition was Cover H1 - V1 - N1, which stands for Hobby Edition 1, Volulme 1, and Magazine #1.  There are several golf covers featuring Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods.

There were also sheets of nine cards in the magazines featuring a variety of sports legends.  Below you can see the magazine and nine card sheet where the Ben Hogan card is featured.

Golf Legends  -  Series 1

#1             2 1/2"  x  3 1/2"


There are 9 cards in this set.  These cards are designed for collectors as they have "souvenir value only", as per the issuer.

There is another similar set, called a Gold set, of which I have only seen one card.  It is a card of Byron Nelson.  The card says "Gold Set 18 of 20" on the front.  But then it states "Card 9 of 10 on the back.  I am not sure if this truly is from another set, and if so, if there could be a Hogan card in this set.

Golf Personalities 1940/50's
1st Series of 24

#7             2 1/2"  x  3 1/2"

This set is the only golf set issued by JF Sporting Collectibles.  However, this company is know for several other issues involving athletes, film stars, military, railway, shippin, aircraft, and much more.

The golfers in this set are mainly from the 40' and 50's, but many had their beginnings in the 30's.  Not too many household names are found in this set.

Below is the webpage for JF Sporting Collectibles where you can order their card sets, including the golf set with Ben Hogan.  You can also order the individual Hogan card in a matt or gloss finish in three different sizes.


2005 Oldham    (England)
Golf Legends
Series 1

#3             1 3/8"  x  2 11/16"

This description of this set as found on the website of "The London Cigarette Card Company of London".

Nick Oldham is responsible for the artwork and these colour caricatures are very good images of twelve of golf's greatest legends.  This set includes pre-war champions like Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen and Henry Cotton through more recent favourites like Nicklaus and Faldo to Tiger Woods.   The description for him suggests he is "fast becoming the best player of all time."

You can also see the errors on the back of the Hogan card stating (1) that Mr. Hogan was born in Dublin, Texas (actually Stephenville) and (2) his year of passing is listed as 1977 (actually 1997)

Information from Topps about this issue:

This 140-card baseball set was released in October 2005.  The 140 common cards were broken into several subsets.  The 140 cards could also then be found in many other subsets of various types.

As the name suggests, the set consists exclusively of retired players.
The Signature Marks cards were of Legends other than Baseball and were 1 of 1. 

Other Signature Marks in this set are Arthur Ashe, Elvis Presley, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Jesse Owens, Marilyn Monroe, Rocky Marciano, Sugar Ray Robinson, and Mark Spitz

Information from Upper Deck about this issue:

This is another baseball issue with 200 cards in the base set composed of retired legends.  As with most sets being produced during this time period, there are many subsets to go along with the 200 card base set.

One of the subsets is the Classic Cuts subset that features non-baseball subjects, one of which is Ben Hogan.  Some cards in this subset are 1 of 1 or have several dozen of each card.  The Ben Hogan card is #'d to 5.

Information about these "coin cards" is very scarce.  I have read that these are from a company located in Canada. I have also seen stated that these cards started appearing on Ebay around 2008, so I am going to put all 4 Hogan cards that I know about here in 2008.  Different designs include: (1) Photo with border, circle around coin with logo under the coin;  (2) Photo with border, no circle around coin, logo under coin; (3) Photo without border, circle around coin, no logo under coin; (4)  Photo without border, no circle around coin and no logo under coin; (5) Card looks like it is cut into puzzle pieces.   The coins in the cards are found in various denominations including penny, nickel, and dime.  You can find cards of boxing, hockey, horse racing, baseball, golf, movie stars, basketball, political, and Native Americans.

You can also find PROTOTYPE cards that look like they were made from puzzle pieces as seen below:
