Antique Golf Collectibles, Identification & Value Guide; Clubs, Balls, Books, Ceramics, Metalwares, Ephemera

In the world of sports, golf stands unique. Its memorabilia goes back over two centuries and it offers collectors an enormous breadth of items to accumulate, much at very affordable prices. The 750 color photographs in this volume provide an introduction to the different categories of golf collectibles. Antique golf clubs and balls, the heart of the game, are covered in detail. Books about golf, comics, old photographs, postage stamps, postcards, jewelry, ceramics, silverware, and toys from the United States and Britain show how golf themes have been incorporated into the form of everyday items for over a century. Museum quality pieces are presented along with items still available at flea markets and swap meets. This book guides the collector on a tour of the many facets of golf and demonstrates that there is still plenty of opportunity to develop a collection of golf items.

Pete Georgiady's Antique Golf Collectibles Identification & Value Guide is also a specialty collector's reference which might reach well into the sports/golfing area as well: clubs, balls, books, ceramics and memorabilia are all listed and detailed in a guide which packs color photos by Richard Walker with values and surveys of themes. Even comic books which feature golf plots, such as Felix the Cat from the mid-1950s, are included, leaving no topic uncovered.

A must have book if you are at all interested in collecting golf stuff.,or not, it is very a great book full of information

My Dad said it has wonderful pictures, info - was looking forward to comparing his collection with the pics and checking the values.

As a beginner in the hobby, this gave me an idea where to begin and it continues to guide me as my knowledge and collection grows.

The book is the best I'm seen. My four sons are golf fanatics so I got this book for their Christmas Present.

Very poor quality. When I received it (New) the pages were separated from the spine.
