Vintage Era of Golf Club Collectibles is the first publication devoted to the truly available, "everyman" items that collectors can obtain. Focusing on the vintage era from the 1920s through the 1940s, this book presents the highly collectible Tommy Armours alongside interesting novelties such as adjustable clubs, in over 450 color photographs.
This book is a necessity for collectors who gain the same thrill from a $40 purchase of a set of banged-up Gene Sarazen woods as a Ralph Tug Tyler driver. Main sections includeWoodsIronsPuttersAdjustable ClubsFancy Club FacesWedgesUtility IronsShaftsGrips ComparisonsGradingCondition ScalesValues...and a glossary.
Manufacturers represented include Allied, MacGregor, Wilson, Spalding, and McGill and others.
This book helps fill a large gap in understanding a great era of golf, 1919 to 1942, the period of change from the hickory or wooden shaft to steel and innovations in production and designs by great designers - many of who not only designed clubs but are amongst the greatest golfers ever. The book introduces the metal and pyratone covered metal shafted clubs of 1919 - 1942 and the slow retreat until 1932 when very few clubs were made with hickory shaft.
