It has been quite a run for single person sport cards, as of late. Back in September, I wrote this article predicting the rise in value within this category, and many of the cards in that article have seen a substantial increase as the card market continues to break records almost weekly.
Golf has been especially hot, with a potential game-changer on the horizon. It has been seven years since the last official PGA card set but Upper Deck has three releases slated for 2021, including the much anticipated 2021 Upper Deck Artifacts Golf (5/12/21).
This set will mark the first made up of star players like Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas and Matthew Wolff, and all of the rookies in this set will come with serial numbers.
Each hobby box will contain some exciting chase cards, including memorabilia cards and Aurum or Diamond Relics (three total per box) that could include autographs, ball markers, and/or dirt and sand from Ponte Vedra Beach’s Sawgrass Stadium Course.
It’s safe to say that these new Upper Deck releases will be wildly popular, and I predict that it will spark further interest into what is already a hot vintage golf market.
This list below shows ten of the most rare and collectible cards currently on the market of some of the best golfers of all time:
