Classic Clubs for Display and Play
Those who collect Antique Golf Clubs, are for the most part, content to admire them in display cases. This is true also of some Classic Club collections. The driving force for most Classics collectors, however, is the superb playability of these clubs. For some, today's factory-made, assembly line, metal woods cannot not match the feel and play of these handmade beauties.
Tommy Armour 693 & 695. ca. 1949-52  Value : $500

(ca. 1949-52) Value: $500.

    What makes a Classic? Quality is the most significant criteria. The original classic woods were made in the 40s, 50s and 60s from the finest oil-hardened perisimmon, and then finished by the greatest woodworkers in the country. Irons, wedges and putters of this era were forged from the best soft steel and hand-ground and shaped. Some say the "feel" of these clubs cannot be duplicated today.
         The listing below contains clubs not only sought for their rarity by collectors, but those sought by avid golfers because they were the best ever made "to do the job." Such clubs are in great demand even if not in the pristine condition demanded by the diehard collector. Small nicks or scratches, as long as they don't effect play, are of little importance. One of these classics can be had at great savings over a "showcase" model, while sacrificing none of the superb playability of the design.
           Here you will find both clubs in "mint condition," suitable for display, and those that have given their owners many hours of fine play.
