Hello to all, great to be here. I'm trying to identify what exact type pf Ben Hogan Apex Irons in the following picture. Thanks in advance for your help! The set is 2 through PW (Equalizer) and a SW. Sorry it is upside down could not fix it.
Look like Ben Hogan Apex from 1973, here is a good link on Hogan irons.
Welcome to the site.
Looking at that website I have to agree they definitely look like that 1973 model, gotta say those are probably the cleanest looking iron of the bunch, the 78' and 82' medallion models look sweet as well but I think the 73' is the nicest looking.
If they are all as nice as the 5 iron, I think $200 is a reasonable asking price since you have the 2. What shaft do they have? If they have the Apex 4 that is usually a plus-kinda equates to a "stiff". The Apex 3 is a regular and the 5 extra stiff.
I don't know-if they are Apex 4 and all as nice as that 5, I might ask $225-250 obo or so and see what happens. You can always negotiate down if you want to.
These clubs have almost a cult following in some circles, but as you have noticed don't bring as much as you would think.Except for really new un-hit and a couple of special editions, most are played at least occasionally rather than collected.
The thing you run into is that these were very popular in the day, so a lot of them out there, and sometimes they find their way into yard sales and thrift stores. I recently bought a virtually un-hit set of MacGregor VIP's, 3-PW, at Goodwill in a fair PING hoofer bag for $30.
If they have original grips in good condition and shaft bands in good condition, they might border on collectible, but still not a lot of money.
