Second that motion.

 

I try not to buy too many clubs or putters. I am addicted enough to golfing. I can't keep my old clubs and buy other clubs. But these pictures sure do make it hard. Nice pics and collection.

I am looking to purchase one of these (left-handed)... are certain ones, based on the series/year more valuable?

 

Thanks.

 

None of these have much value. These were mass produced often with cheap metal. Retail on most of these was $25 or less in the day. Great historical designs though.

None have any real value. I would say $15/$25 would be tops for any of these. All with the exception of the very last models were mass produced and thousands were produced. These will keep coming to the surface for may years to come.

Thanks for the info. I currently own a #1 and #9 they were left over from when my friend closed up his golf shop. They sat on the shelf there for a couple of years. I cleaned the #9 up and put a new grip on it a while back. It is the back up to my beloved Ping Anser that I have had since 1974. You have kinda gotten me interested in trying to find more of them since they are off the beaten path and sorta cheap.

I'm putting with a Mizuno TP Mills #4...I love it. Cameron took a lot of ideas from TP Mills...

 

He did take a couple of idea's of T.P's. If he thinks he "improved" them as he often states, he really is a mixed up guy.

I've got about 20 of these older models in my collection. 

I just sold two of tour edition hand milled variety for over $600 each.

I'll try to find some photos of them to post, and I'll add those that I have left as soon as I get a chance.

Nice to see some of the history explained.

Thanks!

I am long time TP Mills fan. Collect and play them. Favorite all time design is the #12 . And I have one original #with the pencil/fluted shaft that I absolutely love. I have a modern hand #12 version that David Mills made for me. Pics attached of the modern #12 which has kick back hosel and bullet sole. When I play pristine fast greens this is my gamer.
