  1. 1967 Ping BLD. Zip Code 85029. Mag. bronz. with floating face. Double bend shaft, large cavity back blade (like a Pal). As forgiving as a putter can get. I should know I own about 25 vintage putters, and about forty modern day (yr. 2000 >) Bettinardi's, S. Camerons, Cleveland TA Milled's, Tad Moores, Bellum Wincmore's and Edels.
  2. these should be from 1968 according to Jim Kaplin's book. I like the balance and feel of the True Temper Dynamic Gold R300's in these older forged blades. Make sure of the diameter and if they have a tapered tip. Dynamic Golds come in almost any size a tapered tips.

  3. These look like 1957 MT Tourney Colokrom M55. The M85/M75/M65/M55's (Wingbacks) came out in 1951. The Tony Penna influenced Colorkrom bronze faces came out in late 1956 & 1957 on all of the number series and on some Louis Suggs and Tommy Armour labeled iron sets and wedges. The different numbers behind the M's were pretty much to indicate shaft and grip info. The M55's in the 1950's usually indicated a 1 inch shorter shaft The 1957 Colokrom M55 were 1 inch shorter than M85's, M75's and M65's (37" vs. 38"). The M55's should have come originally with red, blue and white calf skin

  5. Is this Redwood still available, and for how much?
  6. These MC irons first came out in 1969. Original List price 2 iron . 9 iron were $182.00.
  7. Nicklaus assisted in designing the VIP series irons. They first came out in 1969 and 1970. Those VIP's had a very slight step sole. The muscle back bulge where the VIP is etched in kind of ended just shy of the sole. Your VIP's have almost the same muscle back, but it ends at the sole and is part of the sole. In other words your club soles are slightly wider and are not stepped. My Kaplan Book only goes to 1970 for irons, but I am sure they are mid 1970's models, just prior to the same irons that came out in 1975 that had "by Nicklaus" etched in where the MacGregor is now. If they have To
  8. I tried to Post my thoughts about ten days ago and I noticed they did not send. Sorry about that. The "S" in the RST1 model No.means they originally came with Stainless Steel stiff shafts. The "1" in the model No. means they originally came with leather grips. In 1970 a nine club set had a hefty List Price of $225.00. A nine club set with Carbon Steel or Aluminum shafts were Listed at $164.50.
  9. Like I said, 1969. I don't think you could have them redone for less than the $65.00 I am looking for from my set, 9/10 condition.
  10. The TR2A's came out in 1969. I have a set of TR1A (3 iron > 9 iron with a TR9 #10 wedge) and the only difference is in the shaft stiffness. The TR2A's are medium firm and the TR1A's the shafts are stiff. I would be will in to sell them for $65.00 plus shipping. All serial numbers match and have playable leather grips. It would cost a lot to find all those clubs you want individually. Not to mention shipping costs and TIME.
  11. I am not familiar with the MacGregor Silver Scot Tourneys. Do they look closer to the Tommy Armour 985's the Collector 709's or the Tourney Master 234's?
  12. The MT's look very much like the 1968-69 M/T's with heavy muscle back. RT2CA. The MT Tourney TR9 also is similar. 1969 step sole version with the heavy muscle back. I probably have five sets of this vintage, most are Step Soles.
