Found a set of 1961 Ben Hogan Power Thrust + irons (3-E) for $15.  Not anywhere near perfect shape. Have Lamkin grips on them.

Deal or no deal?

If the shafts are not bent and the heads are not trashed...... I'll let you double your purchase by sending it to me.

Yeah, that's what I'm driving at of course. Some eBay searches show they could be worth quite a bit more with some cleanup. Or I could re-shaft them for my junior and make him learn to hit a butterknife. Would probably be good for him.

These will be a bit much golf club for a junior to thrash around, and it's pre 1970's production, which will only increase in value in the future.  Don't reshaft it unless it's rusted inside and you want to play it.  Can't help that it had grip change, and most of them will not have the original grips on them.  If you store it in a nice cool dry place, it'll be your best investment for the $15.

Some will do a complete restoration and resale or game it.  Some will keep it the way it is with as much original finishing as possible.  Either way, it's a time piece that will shine a lot for the money you have put into it.
