Can anyone point me in the direction of a website or thread on here that talks about which models and vintage of persimmon and irons are most collectible and or rare/desirable?  I've gleaned a bit here and there from individual threads on a specific oem here and there, but was wondering if there was something or somewhere that had a lot of that information in one place. Thanks

It's been a few years, but this is Mike Doherty's work.

In my opinion, the
Doherty list is out of date. There are too many MacGregor store clubs on the list. Rember , at that time, when a mistake was made on a head, a cheaper grip and shaft was installed to make a store line item. Specifically, Armour and Suggs woods were rejected after comparison to the specs demanded of the top line for those signatures.

If rare is defined as quality , store clubs are not rare

Charley-

No one questions you possess more than common knowledge about MacGregor clubs, and the game in general for nearly 80 years.

That's why you remain "two books easy".

If you choose not to do it, no one else will.

It's Doherty's POV, and one has to give him his due on putting the knowledge and history of golf equipment out there.

It may not be a contemporary look, but it is a look.

I noticed something interesting briefly going through some of the stuff. there is a Macgregor Driver stamped on the bottom with TP as in Toney Penna but the "T" is shaped like a golf tee and the P is as a regular P. I have never seen that stamped on a Macgregor club like that. Now I do have a Toney Penna blonde driver with that stamp on the bottom like that but no model number or Oil Hardened or Handmade. Only TP driver I have ever seen without the model number stamped on it
Driver: Homna G1-X Homna stiff shaft
FW TM V-Steel 5 wood 18* Pro Launch Blue
FW TM V-Steel 7 wood 21* Stock TM R
Irons 3 thru PW 1982 Macgregor VIP Hogan Apex #2 shafts hard stepped-- Yeah MacHogans or Bastardized Macs
SW Cleveland 588 56* DG Sensicore
LW  Cleveland 588 60* DG Sensicore custom sole Scratch EGG style
Putter- Little David 8802 or 97 Scotty Santa Fe rusty as hell

Just the "TP" by itself? No Oil Hardened?  "Super Eye O Matic" soleplate?

Please show us a photo.

Hey Rex and/or Charley,

I have a Driver, 2w, 4w that match the description of the MacGregor Tourney RT2W Velocitized woods in Mike Doherty's publication you linked me to with one exception. Instead of RT2W, the stamp above the sole plate is PT25W. Do either of you have any idea what the PT25W means? I see that there are Penna Tourney woods (PT2W/PT1W) that translate to Penna Tour/Tourney, 1 Pro-Pel shaft, but I don't see anything with a PT25W anywhere.

Orange-

According to the Kaplan Compilation of MacGregor catalogs-

The PT Series is listed on page 4 of the 1958 MacGregor Professional Catalog.

PT25W is specifically listed in the lower right hand corner of the page.

So what does the code PT25W signify, out of interest? Other than it's a wood, obviously :-)

1958, longer at 44"(also making effective lie angle flatter), Pro-Pel 2 shaft, fancy 2 tone grip, Rosewood stain, larger insert. It's the OEM catalog, so it's just the product description. It's not going to say anything about where it might stand in the vintage world. They're pretty nice looking though. I haven't hit them yet. I got them for free, so can't complain!
