36 Vintage Hickory Golf Clubs Listed tonight on eBay

Wow, what a nice collection of clubs!

Tonight we were able to list some thirty-six old hickory golf clubs in outstanding condition. These clubs come from the collection of a gentleman who has perhaps the largest (and finest) private golf collection.

These 36 come with names like Oriole, Gold Smith, Sayers Merion, Spalding, Hillerich, Alphen Piccadilly and other famous and well known names to the golf collector.

Take for example this very playable Hickory golf driver with a spliced head and a metal sole plate. It has an original grip and is very rare. The Hickory shaft is complimented by a calfskin grip and is believed to be circa 1900. It’s all original and in overall very good to excellent condition. The original hickory shaft is unmarked and without cracks, fits tightly and is straight. The head is clean without any manufacturer name or marking. The grip is in good condition and shows some wear.

Then there is this very rare steel shafted SP Cleek with an original calf skin grip. It is what is referred to as a “Fancy Face” because of just that.. the fancy design on the face of the club. The club is all original and in overall excellent condition. The unmarked original steel shaft is black and fits tightly into the socket – and is straight. The head has the expected play dings on the face and metal sole. The grip is a well done, calfskin wrap that is probably original as well. It shows very little normal wear and is tight and complete.

We also listed this vintage golf ball mold from around the 1920s. It has a dimple pattern. There are no markings inside the mold but on each end is visible the word Attleboro which we assumes to be Attleboro, Mass. It also has the number “S-71″ one the mold.


All of our items are shipped either the same day as purchased or the next day and we combine shipping if the buyer notifies us that they are buying more than one item.

Stop by our eBay shop and have a look at the 35+ vintage golf clubs we are now offering. We also have some Dinky, Corgi, Marklin, Wm. Britains and other wonderful items listed for sale.


I look forward to seeing you … soon, before the auctions end.


Who knows a bit about Topps baseball cards?

I’ve recently been approached by a gentleman who has some 80,000 (no extra zeros there.. 80 thousand!) baseball cards that he’d like me to help him dispose of. As you may know, I’m an eBay Trading Assistant and somewhat deal mostly in collectibles.

Barry BondsWell this is clearly a new avenue for me. I know a bit about collectibles… but baseball cards? Very little.

These cards are all (or mostly) from the Topps Company and a great deal of them are from their “Stadium Club” collection. There are dozens and dozens of long white boxes, about 15″ x 4″ x 3″, full of brand new color cards, printed obviously on both sides.

I pulled out a few and not being a big baseball fan, most of the names were just that.. names. There were a few however that I did recognize, like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Cal Ripkin (from the 1993 Stadium box)

So my question dear reader is…

“Is there a market for these cards and if so, where?” My assumption is that eBay is perhaps one of the best sources, but how do I market these? Again, I assume they should be sold by the box but I have no way to guarantee that each and every original card is in the box, although they are tightly packed and probably the way they came from the manufacturer/printer.

If you have any thoughts, ideas or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you. Post a comment here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks!
