Agree - laminated, store line clubs.
What is the asking price?
1961 Laminated Wilson Staffs- Strata Blocs that are almost 60 years old.
Persimmon Wilson Staffs- After 1948, Wilson Persimmons were RH Only, and continued with the Wilson Staff Tour Block Persimmon wood models in the '80s.
Any custom numbers anywhere on the soleplates?
These are for sale locally and claim to be new old stock. Any idea of a value on these?
Speaking of Wilson persimmon vs Wilson laminated woods - I have Wilson persimmons played by Tour players Tom Kite and George Burns - but more interestingly, a laminated Wilson driver, bought from Mr Sam Snead's son, with a letter verifying that Sam played it on Tour.
Sam was the face of Wilson for decades and including the time when Wilson developed their laminated woods, and certainly tested everything they produced.
Sam's Model 11 laminated driver has a old Dynamic X shaft and a cord grip.
Sam won most of his majors with an Izett.
After it broke he never found it's equal, switching back and forth. He is said to have carried test samples of Wilson drivers in the trunk of his car, sometimes giving them to friends.
The club I have looks like an early 1960s Staff Model 11 with full red cycolac insert, but has a signature Sam Snead decal, instead of the usual Wilson decal, on the crown. Sam Snead's name was normally used on the Blue Ridge model but not on the Staff clubs.
My club has an old Dynamic X shaft and a full cord grip.
It's unfortunate that the Wilson archives are no longer available, as the club has a stamped identification number in a recess in the sole plate.
The number has several digits and is unlike simpler numbers I've seen on other Tour player's Wilson drivers - like R -0, which I think might just indicate right hand sole plate #0.
