Good points. To find the real current value of a club, look at auction listings on eBay. Follow the listing for your exact club and condition, and see what they sell for. "Buy It Now" is not accurate and neither are Craigslist postings.
The PGA value guide is pretty useless.
Golf Goals for 2017
1 - Establish an official handicap
my plan for this is to join a local course, and play there consistently(at the moment I bounce between 4 or 5 in the area depending on tee time availability)
2 - consistently hit low 80, stop above 90 blow outs.
this ones tough, I usually hit low 80s but if I'm having a bad round I get into my own head and hit risky shots to try and bring the round back to a solid hit. Plan is to talk to my instructor about shot selection, and also read into this forum more about the mental side.
3 - train weekly and lessons monthly
not sure about this one, I think I'll need to find a training partner.
4 - have a bit more respect for courses
this one is a bad habit of mine, replacing divots, setting better divot patters, picking up tees, raking bunkers.
