Been putting this off for a while, but it is time now, since I am sitting on the computer watching the US Open. Haven't had the time to sit down to do much for a while, so gonna git 'er done now!

I have multiple sets of Ping Karsten K-1 irons...all with matching serial #'s, original shafts, could be played today, could be fixed up for whatever you want, or cut down for a youth...

The biggest plus I see is that these are all matched sets, and with small exceptions...all original, excepting grips, which would be in bad shape, now that they are over 40 years old.

I still play one set, but that one can go as well. I have tried to price these fairly, but it is hard to find something like these, since most sets "out there" no longer are completely matching.

First up, is a set of "Patent Pending" K-1's, like in my avatar.

This set is a 3-9, PW config, and could be played immediately. Grooves in good condition, but grips should be replaced.

Since they are "patent pending" I am asking $300. I haven't seen any listed on any of the auction sites lately, and for that reason, it is hard to determine a price. But, I think that this is a fair price, as the last set that I saw as "patent pending" was months ago, and it was for $1000. Obviously, they didn't sell, and I believe that price was the main reason.

The next set is a beautiful set of K-1's, 2-9. PW, SW - all matching serial #'s, original shafts, grips removed.  Shaft bands are in excellent shape, especially considering the age of the set. Most sets this age, nothing can be read on the shaft bands, but these are in readable shape, and, with the great condition of the grooves, in my opinion, make this set worthwhile for collecting and/or playing. Put grips on that you prefer, and head out to the course and range, and you are ready to go!

I was going to grip this set to play, but settled on another set that fit my game better, and kept this set due to the fact that it was all 10 irons matching. This set is probably in the best shape of all the matched sets that I have, and I am only asking $195 for this set.

Next set is a fully matched set of K-1 irons, 2-9, PW. These have Lamkin perma-wrap grips, and could be put into play today. Grips, shafts, heads all in excellent condition. But, since this is not a "patent pending" set of irons, I have priced these at $100. This is a very fair price for a set of all matched, original irons, and I would love for this set to find a good home. Grooves in good condition (have pictured the 8 as an example), and like I said...playable "out of the box".

Now - for the putters.

First up, a Wilson 8802 from what I believe to be the early/mid 70's, but I'm not 100% sure. It had lead tape on it when I got it, and felt good, so I left it on.
It has the original "Head Speed" shaft, which is flared over the hosel. It is a 35", and has a Royal putter grip, obviously not original, but in good condition.

I am asking only $50 for this putter, because it is in great condition, and the metal that the head is very soft feeling, giving great feedback on the stroke.
