My Scorecard Trading History

My Scorecard Trading History


Shortly after joining the Golf Collectors Association in 1992 I made my first golf scorecard trade with a gentleman named Tom Addis, a golf course general manager from California.  In total we made two trades.  Since then I have made trades with two-hundred-thirty-two other individuals.  The total number of all scorecard trades I've had through April 26, 2018 stands at 5369.  For the totals that averages approximately 23 trades per person.  In truth, however, it's far less than that.  A very significant figure is that the a majority of traders participated  in 15 or fewer trades.  This lead me to create my own "Hall of Fame" for major scorecard traders.   The following is a list of traders with whom I've had 100 or more trades with the leader having more than 600 trades with me.

Some interesting facts about Connecticut: 
  1. The first telephone book ever issued contained only fifty names. The New Haven District Telephone Company published it in New Haven in February 1878.
  2. The USS Nautilus - the world's first nuclear powered submarine was built in Groton in 1954.
  3. Connecticut and Rhode Island never ratified the 18th Amendment (Prohibition).

  5. The Scoville Memorial Library is the United States oldest public library. The library collection began in 1771, when Richard Smith, owner of a local blast furnace, used community contributions to buy 200 books in London. Patrons could borrow and return books on the third Monday of every third month. Fees were collected for damages, the most common being "greasing" by wax dripped from the candles by which the patrons read.
  6. On April 9, 1810, a Salisbury town meeting voted to authorize the "selectmen draw upon the town treasurer for the sum of one hundred dollars" to purchase more books for the Scoville Memorial Library collection, making the library the first publicly supported free town library in the United States.
  7. Mary Kies, of South Killingly was the first woman to receive a U.S. patent. On May 15th, 1809 for a method of weaving straw with silk.
  8. On January 28, 1878, 21 venturous citizens of New Haven became the world's first subscribers to telephone exchange service.
