Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear Irons - need info please!

6 posts in this topic

Hi there.  I don't currently golf but am very interested in starting and am in the market for a new set of clubs.  I "inherited" a set of MacGregor Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear 2-9 Irons, Reg.088.  They are in excellent condition, the grips show little to no wear and, overall, they look like they have barely been used.  Being a woman, I'm assuming I should stick with a woman's set but I would love to use these as trading material or sell them to put towards a new set for me.  I have seen numbers all over the board online in terms of value but have not seen any in this pristine of condition.  Any thoughts on value for these or if there is any market for these?  I wanted some idea of what these are before I dealt with anyone directly.  Thanks much!

Hi,

Saw your ad. I have a set I'm thinking of parting with. How did you make out with the sale?

The MacGregor Nicklaus "Golden Bear" irons hit the market about 1986. Ralph Maltby, who analyzes playability (user-friendliness) of irons, ranks them as Classic. This means they were OK irons back when they were made, but are much harder to hit than most modern irons.

Early versions were a blade design with extra weight on the sole area, while the later MV model shows early perimeter-weighting (to make it easier to get the ball into the air).

On eBay, I see Golden Bear irons selling from $40 to $120. Online sales would be best - just see what people will pay.

Awards and Achievements

The Golden Bear irons I remember were inexpensive clubs sold in department stores like K-Mart. They were forged blades and nothing special. If these are the type you have, they won't be worth much as a trade-in, no matter how good a condition they may be in. You would be lucky if they take them at all. Not bad clubs (I had a set once), You might as well play them until you are ready for a modern technology set.
