Antique Golf Collectibles Identification and Value Guideby Pete Georgiady, Richard Walker
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.
