Spalding Tour Edition custom crafted (blades)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Hello to everyone on the forum!

My name is Bernard, golfer from Belgium, and I am trying to buy a set of
Spalding Tour Edition custom crafted (blades, with bird on ball on the back) - that was my first set as a beginner (not easy).


Despite putting a lot of time looking up the net, the only offers I can see are for individual clubs (on ebay, ironfinder, vintage-golf-clubs.com), but not for whole sets...

Could one of you tell me how to proceed? Are there specialized sites/forums?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Bernard

This set is on Ebay now.  I see them from time to time because I collect " Birdie in Circle " irons from the 70's and have a notice sent to me whenever any set of spalding irons are available,

Dear mlf16507

 

Now your link works again! and this is what I read

Regrettably, in some cases, we may prevent users from accessing items that are not within the scope of said restrictions because of limitations of existing technology.

So I need you as an insider to get me into this thing ;-)

 

Thanks

Well Bernard in just a few days you'll be the proud owner (already are!) of the probably LAST set of AS NEW T.E.'s around. I hope you have the best ball striking experience with these. You truly know what you want and deserve these sticks! Just as soon as we figure out where to send em" ( :)! Good luck and thanks!

 

ps- you WILL be staring at these for a couple days and probably won't want to hit them! Eventually you will and not regret it one bit!

Hi
I have the spalding tour edition (bird on ball) irons 2,4,8,9,P,S
Brand new, unshafted, never used, sat in a shoe box.
They are a vision of beauty, and I would love to hit them.

Any ideas what their worth.

I am not an expert but I was once in contact with some guy who was selling tour editions heads at 5 USD a piece. They were a bit used, but he was selling the complete set, which is a big advantage, and almost a must if you're looking for a buyer. So I would say : use them for your own! I have a set, and love them

Picked them up on eBay uk. Had been watching them and there were no bids.
I missed the end of the auction, but they came around again at an even lower price!!!
He started them at £25, but dropped them to £20!!!!!!
I live in Australia but get clubs posted to a uk address, then deal with the postage from there. It works out a lot cheaper, but can take a while to get the clubs down under.
Looking forward to having a hit with these, as I did have a set many years ago.
This now saves me having to put shafts in the brand new ones I have. (back in the shoe box for now)

Found the set you are looking for. Contact the seller and see how it goes.

I have a set of these fantastic forged blades. Developed and tweaked by the likes of Greg Norman, Johnny Miller, and Craig Stadler in the 80's. Put them on the shelf today and they would easily sell for $700 - $900. A gem of a set.

700 USD? I got a 3-PW set 1 year ago, in nearly new condition (owner had played them less than 5 rounds) for 300 USD, with DG S400 and new multicompound grips.

or are you referring to a "special" set?

Actually, I was referring to the fact that if these clubs were brand new this year, they would be on the market in that price range. If you look at the forged irons in most tour player's bags (Tiger, Rory, etc) you will see clubs that look a lot like these. I don't know what they cost back when they were new, but they could command a high price if introduced today.

 

(Mine? I bought mine from an old guy at a garage sale. Practically new. $25 bucks, 3-PW.)
