Macgregor Forged Irons

Hello. Looking to buy a set of old Macgregor irons for playing with ? When were they at their best and is there a set that stands out as their finest quality ? My initial reading seems to suggest that 1978 - 1982 was  a great period, linked to David Graham and Jack Nicklaus ?

I would be prepared to even buy a tatty rusty set and have them refurbished with 2020 shafts  etc etc.....

Lastly, is there a certain BOOK on the market that will identify clubs and aged them accurately ?

Regards, Mark.

My favorite older MacGregor irons are the PCB Tour Forged.  They date, I believe, back to 2000.  The set runs 3 thru pitching wedge and the lofts are approx. one club weaker than my current set(s).  I bought them used, several years ago, intending to harvest the shafts.  After playing a round with them I decided to keep them intact.

P.S.  Although I do not recall, specifically, what I paid for them it cannot have been more than 40-50 bucks.  Most of my older name-brand stuff came from thrift stores and yard sales.
