It looks like one I bought new in early 90's. I'm not an expert though. Hope it's an old rare one for you. Great find either way for the price

Take a nickel from your pocket and set it on the face.  If there is any face showing above or below the nickel, it is a remake.  Great looking putter, no matter if it is old or not.

You did good at that price, holy cow!

What a coincidence, my wife asked me to do that before she would marry me.

The History of the 8802

  • 1940 – Wilson introduces the R46 Willie Hoare putter.  “A revolutionary putter with a different feel and a new grip.  It has an unusually broad sole, giving it excellent balance.”
  • 1948 – R46, Winsum putter Designed by Willie Hoare.
  • 1950 – Stock numbers were changed and the R46 become the D8802.
  • 1954 – Winsum putter Designed by Willie Hoare is changed to D8802 stock number.
  • 1955 – A new Winsum putter is introduced.  “This goose-neck putter features a brass head, flange back…”
  • 1959 – New Turf Rider putter, with double ribbed sole is introduced with stock number D8802.
  • 1960 – Four new brass putters are introduced, all with flared tip shafts.  One of which is called simply Arnold Palmer and is “Designed By the world famous Arnold Palmer… brass head with Flared Tip shaft; beautiful calfskin grip.”
  • 1961 – Another Turf Rider putter with double ribbed sole is introduced, maintaining the D8802 stock number.
  • 1962 – The Designed By Arnold Palmer putter is introduced.  Described as “Flanged type blade putter” and “Perfect head feel transmitted to the grip”, it is essentially the 8802 as we know it

Great find - for what was once such a ubiquitous putter, I still can't get over how expensive these things are

The funny thing was that the "Designed By Arnold Palmer/8802" was actually the cheaper retail store model, with the 8813 being the country club/green grass Pro Shop putter. These actually can be picked up on the cheap as one of my Originals, I got for $35+ $10 shipping. 
 

Though the circa 2014 dual milled putter is a superb putter, and I chose it over any of my Scotty Napas, my original 8802 was the absolute best👌🏼
 

Stay Well W&G👊

In the end, only three things matter~ <br /><br />How much that you loved...<br /><br />How mightily that you lived...<br /><br />How gracefully that you accepted both victory & defeat...<br /><br /><br /><br />GHIN: Beefeater 24

I didn't know that about the 8813! I'll have to look for one. Great information - thank you

Yah, it's a great putter also, it's just that I prefer a sterile top line or a dot, not the lines or in the case of the 8813, the "T."

 

That said, it's a superb putter, and can be had for a very very fair price🤙
 

cheers🍻

Where the Wilson 8813's also known by some as the Australian Blade, because someone from Australia won some PGA Tournaments with it?

Good afternoon everyone. I’m new to this forum, (and pretty much all others). I live in Alabama and this weekend is what’s called the world’s longest yard sale. This thing stretches roughly 690 miles all the way from Michigan to Alabama. Well yesterday my wife, our 3 year old, and our 1 year old decided to give it a shot. As you can imagine it was a very stressful day, what with stop and go traffic, parking on the side of a busy highway, and constantly buckling and unbuckling two boys car seats all day. Toward the end of the day though, I’m hoping it was all worth it. We went in to a neighborhood off of the main yard sale stretch. We pull up in front of this house and I see one lone golf club leaning against a table with a sticker saying $2. I take the headcover off and couldn’t believe what I was seeing, an amazing condition Wilson 8802. But now after doing more research, it seems this may be more rare than I thought. Based on what I’ve read via google and what I’ve seen on this forum, I believe this to be a 1964. The shaft dimensions and number of steps match, the grip is the original leather with flags on end cap. The only missing piece seems to be the shaft label. I was hoping someone with some experience could help me out and give me some opinions on it. I love golf and I love antiques so finding this was a dream come true. Thanks to all in advance!

Super Cool. Don't ever regroup it. Those leather "Reminder Grips" became illegal by the PGA for tournaments. And if I'm not mistaken the end caps from Wilson back in the day actually depicted Musical Notes, like in a musical score vs. flags.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
