    An answer to a long felt collecting need

    One of the top 2 golf club collector books written so far. As a seller and collector of golf clubs. This book has filled a gapping void; saving hours of research regarding collectible golf clubs. Its range of clubs and prices leaves all with a better perspective on how and what to collect and what to pay. I hope he gives us more. Thanks, Jimmy Hill
