They look to be in really nice shape, but like everything, they are only worth what someone will pay for them.  The best place I know of to determine value is eBay.  Check the sold listings for similar sets- that'll get you in the ballpark for sure.

The 1969 model was my first set of clubs, purchased used in the early 70s. Great set of clubs at the time. Enjoy!

Did you or the prior owner redo the paintfill? It isn't color-correct.

However, unlike the Apex IIs from your other thread, the ferrules are correct which is nice.

Personally as a Hogan collector, I don't care for irons that have been "retouched" with paint, especially when it isn't the correct color.

As others have said, the best place to get current values is on ebay as values can swing wildly based on who is looking for what at any given point in time.

I had wondered about that myself when I first saw the picture.  Wasn't it supposed to be red and green?

I did a quick search, but couldn't turn up anything.

Thanks for clearing that up, dpark.  Which model had the red and green paint fill combination?

Based on my notes from the Hogan company, it was the 1971 Bounce Sole 1+. The club # and the "Bounce Sole" was in Red. "Ben Hogan 1+" was in green. I never had this set so I don't have any photos to visually confirm.

Really cool to see those irons in such great condition.  2 bidders on Ebay with money to burn in bidding war could fetch decent money I would assume.

I picked up a set of 1970 1+ Bounce Sole's a couple of weeks ago.  They have green paint fill.  Does anyone know if this is the same head as the 1968 with different stamps or is it a completely different head?

I believe it’s a different head, although very similar design.  Those are the ones I had as a kid. As I recall the next years model was the first iron bearing the Apex name.
