    We hope you see the value & investment potential of collection!!!






    Hmm, yes... well it isn't quite as good as it might have been had you managed to keep the Sawzall in a lock box. I guess it's safe to say that misterinvestor isn't a golfer...or much of an investor for that matter.

    Tokyo? Clearly he's a deposed Nigerian prince (who drives it 350 easy) who simply needs to use your bank account and $1500 to gain access to untold fortunes in gold secured deep in the persimmon vaults. The shafts are yours to keep once the transfer is made.

    Impressive, $147.90/shaft that you still have to remove the head from to be able to make use of. This guy is a certifiable Massengill.

    $1479/100 = $14.79 a shaft that you still have to remove the head from to be able to make use of.

    And this will make you laugh.

    Here's a real investment opportunity. Get it at that price and surely you can flip for a big profit, right?

    im by no means a honma expert, and certainly not an expert in their older persimmon woods, however i do know that many of their clubs have had gold on the heads (gold inlaid in the cavity for cosmetic purposes etc). if these clubs had some gold on the heads too it would make sense that someone would cut off of the heads to remove the gold.



    to the guy who posted that langer bag and shoes that is awesome! but there is no way it is worth 35 grand, count me as one of those people who just doesnt get the appeal with sports memorabilia. btw if anyones interested there is a picasso on ebay for a little over a million bucks!

    Exactly. Has anyone seen gold prices lately? I don't know how much is in each head but it's probably worth more than just selling the driver as is.
