We can help you sell Antique Wood Shaft Golf Clubs and related Golfing Antiques!!
I can & will help you sell your vintage & antique golf clubs on consignment from my antique sales website www.Patented-Antiques.com, or I will list them on eBay for you, but you need to have a real sense of their value in today's market. I can not provide that for you. If you contact me and ignoring this I can not help you.Wood Shaft Clubs : A Primer
Not too many
years ago you could buy or sell all the vintage wood shaft golf
clubs that you would want at antique shows on the East Coast. The supply
was plentiful, and so were the buyers. Prices were usually
reasonable. Then for a while wood shaft golf clubs
hard to find and became more expensive. Demand outweighed supply.
During their hey-day of popularity
prices were being driven by a new crowd of buyers. The
dreaded, but loved, foreigners. That situation has now come full circle
and wood shaft clubs are again plentiful and cheap as the Japanese buyers
who were driving the market have
moved on to sneakers and blue jeans or something else. In the last
few years I have had hundreds of offers to sell me clubs, while not one
potential buyer has ever asked what I have in stock. That is an
In the last few years I have had hundreds of offers to sell me clubs, while not one potential buyer has ever asked what I have in stock. That is an important fact.
There are now thousands if not millions of vintage clubs coming onto the market. With the coming of the internet, increases in supply and the drop in demand, the supply of these vintage sporting items is abundant, and common wood shaft clubs can now be bought for 1/2 or less than one had to pay 10-15 years ago. Which is OK as long as everybody is aware of and accepts that.
Primarily we prefer to deal in harder
to find vintage wood shaft clubs similar to those that I have pictured on this
page. These clubs may appear to all look pretty much the same at
first sight but each one pictured have subtle
common clubs. Typically, unusual clubs will have an UNUSUAL patented idea or other feature to try and help
improve the Golfer improve his score on the links.
I DO NOT MAKE OFFERS on GOLF CLUBS! I do not give free valuations for clubs. Please do not call or write asking me for one! If you have clubs that you want sold, arrange to send them to me and I will sell them eBay for you. Or do it yourself and save some money.Golf Balls & Golfing Accessories
In addition to
antique wood shaft golf clubs,
we also deal in early golf balls and other accessories related to
golf. The balls that I am looking for have square or other different
dimples rather than the round ones found on more modern
balls. Even earlier and more desirable are those balls called
gutties and I would also be interested in buying these types of balls that
generally date from a short period of time right near the turn of the
century and before.
Please Note: I do not buy any metal shaft clubs. There are many other people who specialize in them and do buy them, just go to the local flea market, or the used sports store. And good luck.
The above are examples of the caliber, condition and quality of antique wood shaft golf club that I am primarily interested in and can help you with.
If you have quality antique golf clubs or golf
related antiques similar to those that you see
on this page that you want to sell, please contact us at
providing me with as many details as possible.
