Vintage Golf Balls - Silver King Black Recessed


Recommended Posts

I couldn't see if there was a vintage section or somewhere more appropriate, so feel free to move.

 

Going through the garage I found some of my father's old shop stock and a box of Silver King balls in an original box containing six balls, still wrapped and with 'seasons greetings'.

 

I wondered what the history of these would be and if anyone collects this sort of thing (and if they do then the likely value). I don't think they are ancient but certainly before my time and interesting to me.

There's a funny little putter with a split grip still in it's original wrapper as well - almost looks like the sort of thing you might use for side-saddle.

I have NO idea what they're worth so this is grain of salt stuff, but I found them interesting enough that it made me look them up. I'm seeing similar individually wrapped balls selling for around $30/ea in sites like this, so my guess is you have something pretty cool there!:

Thanks for that. They are certainly an unusual find and it's nice to have them all wrapped and in the 'seasons greetings' box.
