I have wanted to get into hickory golf for years and finally came the right topic for all my questions. First I want to say thanks to everyone that is sharing all their amazing knowledge! I plan on joining the society once I get a decent set of clubs and get out on the range and course with them. What are the best books or information sites for me to visit so I can get my feet wet?

I also found a post on a classified site in my general area with this to offer for $150. This is the description:
7 Vintage Wooden Shaft Golf Clubs Play Set with Vintage Bag
All are in good playable and clean condition without
cracks, breaks, etc. (One has a slight bow)
Macgregor Driver: Shaft by The Crawford McGregor & Caney Co.
Dayton, O. 492 B-6 Swing weight
New grip over the original
Mid Iron "The Hutch" Special Jack Hutchison Burke
3 Iron Wilson Crest Stainless steel Range 155-170 yds
Mashie Wicklow Sports City Radio
Mashie Pro Made chrome plate
Mashie Niblic Sure Shot 7 hand forged
Putter Model One John Black, Autographed Model
New grip over the original

I will try to post pictures once I figure out how to. I may have stayed up to late.

That looks like a steal to me at $150. I would jump. I think all you would need to add would be a Niblick for a starter play set. Am I right guys?

My guess not playable. B swing weight is a wall hanger at best. Look for clubs that are C5-7 min. No bowed shafts. Brassie 43 inch. Get proper length clubs. So if the seller will give you good pictures, shaft pictures, swing weights etc don't buy
You will regret buying bad sticks
You are better to go slow. Buy from good sellers and you will have a better experience at a good cost. Try to play an event. Check with organizer. They always have loaner or rental clubs. Talk to people.
Good luck
