Have collected putters and was looking for documentation as to the values and was never able to get get a good feel until I found this reference guide. If you collect old golf clubs, or golf balls and tees this guide is a must.
Now in a thoroughly updated and expanded second edition, Chuck Furjanic's Antique Golf Collectibles is the definitive, authoritative, and reliable price and reference guide for dealers and collectors of golf memorabilia and collectibles. This new edition is highly recommended for personal, professional, and community library antique/collectibles reference sections, and features detailed photos of all golf collectibles, a new sixteen page color section, updated prices for thousands of specific items, and new chapters on golf bags, auctions and more. If you are thinking of buying, selling, collecting or swapping golf related materials, begin with browsing through the pages of Chuck Furjanic's Antique Golf Collectibles.
Nicely done reference guide for most collectible golf clubs, balls, etc. Only weakness is a lack of descriptive item info and a lack of an index for quick reference. Look forward to a new edition with "newer" collectibles and more specific historical information on individual items.
Latest 400 page encyclopedia of golf collectibles contains over 500 large, sharp, black and white photos and more than 50 in full color. Not just a picture and price guide. Full text is provided for the major topics ranging from: Collecting Antique Golf, Collecting Societies, Antique Golf Clubs, to Signature Balls, Golf Tees, Golf Art, Medals and Trophies, and Trading Cards. A comprehensive index is included to facilitate item selection. New chapters include Golf Bags and even Auctions. Collectors will enjoy the "paper items" included. A great reference.
My Grandpa and my husband are both avid fans of the game, and they usually will haunt antique stores for those vintage golf items. This book is not only fun to look at, but it was of great help to guide you to price/value when hunting those old items. I am not a golf fan but I even enjoyed looking through this book and then joining the hunt for treasures in the antique stores!
I've come into a collection of old and antique golf clubs. This reference guide has helped me sort through the chaff and really get to the difference between valuable and junk. It is also a great book for learning about the history of all things golf in enough detail to keep interest without being bogged down in fluff ( well maybe a little fluff!).
The most comprehensive (individual) price guide for golf collectibles.
Purchased this book to gain some insight to the world of golf collectables, this book has all of the categories, just is horribly incomplete, the Tiger Woods section seemed a bit inapropriate for an antiques book. Sorry I wasted my money, cannot give it too a freind as I think it junk, Goodwill wil be getting another crummy bbook donated.
