What items have you collected from older eras of golf?

When I was a kid, I always got my grandfather something golf related for Christmas. I managed to hold on to a few of those items. This first one is from the mid-1960s and is for personalizing your balata golf ball. I do not believe there was any custom printed balls available back then. There weren’t really Sharpies either, just wide tipped permanent markers you could use to make a dot on the ball. This device came with 3 sets of A-Z upper case metal stamps, that you mashed into the cover, as well as a felt ink pad. The truly funny part of my grandfather’s use of this ball marker, is the name he put on his ball. Raising a family during the Great Depression made him keenly aware of the need to present himself as a successful, affluent businessman. So the name he printed, which can be seen still mounted in the ball marker, is Mr. T H Peery. 😄 I’ve seen a lot of custom balls with names printed on them, but none using Mr.

The letter stamps are soooooo small, I can’t even read them individually. I have no idea how he did it.
