    BRITISH GOLF CARD COLLECTION. If we must identify one particular pastime with the British Isles, it would have to be golf.  Is there a more hallowed shrine than St. Andrews?  Ah! the links of England with unforgiving winds sweeping from the North Sea and fairways fit for grazing, it's the only logical site for the game's developement.  In that spirit, we present this impressive collection of a dozen different golf cards that originated in British cigarette packs.  With only a couple of these ranging to EX/MT, it may be assumed that this group is NM or better.  Itemized, this collection includes: 1-3) 1935 Pattreiouex "Sporting Events" #19 Bobby Jones, #20 Henry Cotton and #21 Lawson Little; 4) 1930 Millhoff "In the Public Eye" #8 James Braid; 5) 1930 Wills "Famous Golfers" #22 Harry Vardon; 6) 1924 Wills "Golfing" #21 St. Andrews; 7) 1931 Churchman "Sporting Celebrities" #33 Walter Hagen; 8-9) 1927 Churchman "Famous Golfers" (Series of 50) #39 Jess Sweeter and #47 Harry Vardon; 10) 1926 Lambert & Butler (New Zealand) "Who's Who in Sport" #2 Bobby Jones; and 11-12) 1927 Churchman "Famous Golfers" #4 Walter Hagen (lg.
