Introduction to Ben Hogan Golf Cards

Welcome to the Ben Hogan Golf Card site.  This site is about the sports (trading) cards that have a connection to Ben Hogan.  This site will be updated as old cards / information surface and new cards / information are issued. 
 
The history of Ben Hogan golf cards goes back almost 75 years, with his first card appearing in the 1949 set "Sports Champions" from the Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago.  As you can see from the Year To Year page, from 1949 through 1999 only 70 BH cards were issued.  Since the turn of the century, there have been close to 270 BH cards produced.

In the mid/later part of the 1990's and into the early 2000's, there were some new companies and new product introduced to the collecting universe which contained Ben Hogan cards.  During this time period there were also many "custom-made" Hogan cards hitting the market as well. Many cards used hand drawings and some made use of actual pictures of Mr. Hogan.  Several card sets came from the United Kingdom with Ben Hogan cards.

As of January 20, 2023, I have 349 entries in my Ben Hogan golf card database.  I have 186 of these in my personal collection. Many of the Hogan cards that I do not have are 1 of 1's and find their way into other collections and stay there for long periods of time. Also, many of the Hogan cards from the past decade have other athletes on the same card.  So, you are up against the collectors of those athletes as well.

This site was not made to be fancy in any way what-so-ever.  It is just straight forward in its presentation and information.  It is here to help fellow Ben Hogan golf card collectors in their search to add to their collection.


Please let me know:
(1) if you find inaccurate information on this site  
(2) if you have cards (or scans of cards) of Mr. Hogan that I have not included on this site
(3) you just want to communicate about collecting Ben Hogan golf cards
