Macgregor iron experts, what year are these irons?

Can any Macgregor guys tell me what year these irons were made? I just picked up these rough factory heads 3-sw. They are new old stock factory heads that never had the finishing work done. I got these and some Macgregor DoctoRX (Ping Eye 2 look alikes) set of heads 1-sw. They were a cheap venture for my first grinding/finishing project.



Thanks

    I realized that right after I posted. I just edited it with stock photos of both type. I'll have to take pictures of the heads

    The MacGregor cast VIP's are from the late '70s. Jack actually used them for a period in tournament play. I think they were more prominently used by His Honor, Judge Elihu Smails. I should know...

    I think they are mid to late 1970's. MacGregor's rather feeble attempt to fight off PING. Just before the classic/vintage club craze exploded in the late 70's and early 80's.

    Awesome! The DoctorX irons are from 1993 I found out and the Cast VIP's are 70 something. Thanks for the input all

    Jack did use the VIP cavity back for awhile. I saw them in his bag at the Canadian Open in Windsor Ontario in 1975 or 76.
