  1. I'm fairly new to vintage clubs.... kinda. My first set was a beat up blob of irons, mainly comprised of 4 Sam Snead Blue Ridge (I believe), with aluminum shafts and that now illegal grip with the flat spot built in for the left hand. Last year, I found a set of 1980 Hogan Directors and 3 Titleist Tour Model persimmons. All were in surprisingly terrific shape. A few months went by and I took them on the range very briefly for the last 5 balls of the bucket. Then a few months back, I used the 7 iron and the 5 wood a few times. Recently, I posted a video on YouTube, with what I THINK is the first modern day black and white video using vintage clubs. I had the most fun in years and the resulting score wasn't bad for me, a 40 for 9. The woods were fantastic, the irons weren't bad, and the sand wedge was awesome. Now, I think I will be playing vintage clubs far more than my moderns. The question is..... How in the hell do you go about knowing what will be the best for you, when you're not in a shop or on a range testing them, likely because you're buying from eBay? Hogan's are always forged and a safe bet. I don't prefer a very sharp leading edge and I usually measure for a stiff flex. I don't have unlimited amounts of money, and I don't want to have an entire garage full of old clubs, but I wouldn't mind hearing your TOP 3 of all time. Based on feel, feedback, performance, and maybe some consideration as to how rare they are. Not holy grail level, but something fairly uncommon. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi all. I stumbled across these beauties at an antique shop in Eastern Kentucky. I wanted to share them in hopes someone could provide more information. I would love to know more. Especially specs like loft. The set goes 2-9, and then an 11. The little bit of information I have found puts these clubs at being manufactured in 1969. Any information or value is appreciated! Enjoy!
  3. Hi. I bought a 2 through PW set of Wilson staff irons from 1959, all original set in fairly good condition at a reasonable price last year. I think it was $90. Leather grips although hardened a bit, shafts in good condition with no signs of rust, club heads minor scratches, etc. I would like to find a matching set of woods like 1, 3, 5 or 1, 3, 4 or 1,2,3. What are they called? I guess they don't have to be from the same year, but it would be preferable. I also bought a sand iron replica a few days ago from the 90s in good condition for $20, when an original in excellent condition went for $275. Anyone with experience in Wilson staff from the 50s and 60s?
