Can we do a classic equipment swap thread?

If so, I've got some stuff to trade. Could be a heckuva fun thread!

    Is there a classic section there? I was thinking more of a running trade thread with pics

    The pinned post says we can't. But you I assume you can start one in BST with an appropriate vintage title.

    It appears that I've been given a reprieve for my "sins" here & can start posting/replying again.



    Count me in! This way, I won't be PM'ing everyone to death.



    FWIW - I have 2-3 old ('73ish) Hogan Equalizer wedges - varying types of shaft - seems that these are always in short supply

    I am considering how to accomplish a trade of several sets of classic steel shaft clubs

    (Hogan, Armour, Titleist, etc) for one good set of hickory shafted clubs (modern replica's?).

    The equivalent market values seem approximately equal, which is a sad state of affairs,

    although the shipping cost and effort would be hugely disproportional. I suppose

    a local craigslist posting might be the best way, so I could include several classic

    golf bags with the clubs.



    Example: one set of Hogan redline irons/woods for one Tad Moore mashie !?

    The Classic BST Forum had been established and killed off due to inactivity (as Baloo mentioned) since the quoted pinned post- I'll be interested to see how this renewed interest shakes out.

    It ain't gonna happen, was tried couple years ago with limited activity. There's no reason not to list on the regular BST....even 'modern' guys will view ads for premium old school irons, especially if Don WHITE is connected with it. LOLOL.

    Is it possible to post in BST and then post here to notify the Classic crowd to go over there and check it out? Or would that be against the rules too?

    Trades only is one thing, but I think many clubs are held by long time collectors who might not want to trade, but desire to share with newer collectors.



    I would guess that many more classics would be available for sale than trade.

    Can we like PM each other? I know like most of the regulars on here know what each other are geared towards.

    Maybe we could have a "BST Announcement" thread. Just put up a note on it that you have something for sale so we know to look at the BST. Personally I don't have the time to wade through the hundreds of posts there looking for the old stuff that "might" be for sale. A quick note to let me know would be great.

    That's why we need a mod to approve this thread. The BST is a mess
