Hi guys,
Found this set for sale locally, the guy claims an inlaw won them in a raffle about 30 years ago and never opened them. I have done a bit of google-fu and I can't find any that match these exactly, the biggest difference is that all the ones I have seen online have black paint in the writing 'Wilson' on the bottom of the club. I have read in another thread that Wilson remade some sets in the mid 80's could these be remakes? or are they just knock off?
I have never tried blades so not sure if I don't like them that I will be able to resell them for what I pay. they are going for $120 AUD

any help would be greatly appreciated. also any input on value would also be great.

Look genuine to me.  Winning them 30 years ago seems to click.

Don't have a clue to value.

Nice clubs.  Enjoy.

I'm not seeing anything that shouts knock-off, in fact I'm doubtful that fakes were ever an issue in the heyday of those clubs. I would guess that they're nearer 40 than 30 years old. The price seems very good for someone who already knows and likes what they're looking at. But if you've never played blades, or wooden woods before, you could spend less trying a variety of heads and shafts to find something that suits you.

I have that sand wedge in my closet right now, itís legit. My father bought it in the late 70s-early 80s and played with it until his back fusion a few years ago.

Nobody knocked off clubs back then.  These, just based on the grips, look to be a retail store version and not the Pro Shop higher end version.  A better pic of the iron heads would be useful (face and back).

Those look like Mini-Bullets from the mid-70's - no bore-through hosel and just the simple Staff script.  Take a picture of one of the irons from the back of the club head.  Should be a small indent towards the hosel end that will be the tell-tale sign.

Here are what mine looked like (just sold them) Posted Image

Awesome guys, thanks for the feedback and info. I don't think I would use the wooden woods, more interested in the iron set, woods go into storage or sale.

I have a 4 wood with that sole, and an original Dynamic shaft. Very easy to hit and shape. Enjoy.
