  5. @billchao Thanks Bill. Newbie
  6. upndown21 I have a good friend that owns a Play -it - Again store. I helped him early on learn values, set up his store and general golf equipment knowledge etc. Even took a vacation and work there at the store for a week with out pay because it was so fun. Many of my clubs came from his store. Or he would pass on my name and number if someone wanted cash for ... say ... a Scotty Cameron Tei3 and seller wanted too much for the putter or too much than my friend would be willing to risk. Seller wants $200.00, my buddy didn't want to go over $125.00 Then he might tell them to call me. Then I might buy it direct for $150.00. Not often, but I have gotten some Bettinardi's, Tad Moore's and Bobby Grace's that way. Or persimmons. Man have I gotten several great persimmons for my friend. People would want cash or a trade value and he would not take wooden clubs in, so a lot of the people would just leave them behind. Most went to Good Will, but some for a couple of bucks went into my basement. Good Will, Thrift Stores, Garage Sales and a local Golf Galaxy would let me brows through the back room before they would send trade ins they did not want to put on the floor to 3Balls or 2ndSwing, or incomplete iron sets to ironfinders. About 5 years ago I was told by the store manager that I was the number one rewards point accumulator at his store. I guess several sources to accumulate. A lot of the vintage stuff from Good Will, where I comb six regularly on my way to making sales calls. A few years ago the BEST DEAL at a Good Will was a set of Mizuno MP-30's 3 iron > PW with TT DG S300 shafts that looked like they had not been hit. $17.00! And flipped them for $235.00, which was a deal for the buyer and I.
  7. restbelt. Sorry no (what???) 8 iron
  8. In my opinion you can not go wrong with the new TaylorMade RBZ driver for $150.00. Make sure it is the adjustable shaft Black and make sure you get the shaft flex you need. I find it as long and forgiving as a TaylorMade M1 I had previously.
  9. Over the years I have amassed over 75 loose irons. Anything from a 2017 Ping G30 5 iron to a 1950's MacGregor Double Duty wedge. And not just 6 or 7 iron demos. Actually very few of them. PW's, 8 & 9 irons, Muzuno, Bridgestone, Callaway, Ping, TaylorMades, MacGregor, Hogan, Wilson, and more. Modern day and vintage irons. Even some colored sheathed shafted 1920' to 1940's sets or loose irons. If you have lost a club around the green, let me know. I may have your club in my basement.
  10. I had heard, and I am not sure where, that Rickie Fowler practices with 1950's - 1960's style blades when he struggles with ball striking. If that is true, then it makes perfect sense.
  11. I still have a set of '69 MacGregor Tommy Armour Tourney 985 irons, a set of '64 MacGregor Tommy Armour Tourney Iron Master 234's and a set of late 70's PGA Tommy Armour Silver Scot Collector Reg, No. 709's. All very similar thick bottom / thin top blades that are surprisingly forgiving.
  12. I believe the Tourney Custom The 985's were put out a few years after the 1969 MacGregor Tommy Armour 985's. Probably 1972-73. The TA 985's were very popular irons as were the persimmons woods. They probable have all red cursive script on the back side of the blade. Nice forged iron blades.
  13. I have dozens of vintage Mac's, Hogan's, Joe Powell's, Dean Ota, John Jacobs and Palmer Peerless Chattanooga persimmons. The persimmons values have seen better day. I agree some are works of art. I too am in the selling mood, but I hate to give them away as well. Any Super Eye-O-Matic's or Cleveland Classics?
  14. sheepdog I know this is an old post, but one of the reasons that I was told about so many different Zip Codes in such a short period of time was that the Phoenix - Scottsdale - Mesa where all booming in population with snow birds and permenant residents, Codes were given out to decentralized the one main post office in Phoenix. Something like a million people moving to Sun Valley Area in the mid sixties to early 1970's. A few of them were the Karsten's. I do not think the Zips changed because of facility moves. I have had several 85069's which were late 1970's. Never had a 85071 Zipper. I have been collecting clubs for twenty years. Been cutting back the last few years, but still have over 1,100 clubs. You name the era, manufacture and the one-offs and I probably either have had it or do have it now. Last years Bettinardi 009 SS Limited Edition putter down to a 1890's hickory shafted cleek ...Robert Forgan made in Scotland. Fun collecting the vintage 50's to 70's Wilson Staff and MacGregor forged blade irons, I was told I have four of the finest Hogan iron sets as well and a few made for the Senior Tour - Tour Van MacGregors VIP's. #1-SW & SW2 Ping Eye 2 BeCu's. Stuff like that.
  15. That is a shame. He brought a light side to commentary and opinion. Funny.
