Maybe pongman.com.     He's put together a guide to identifying old Ping clubs, and has quite a few older putters on his website.

While some putters look like others, some can be quite rare (valuable). Be wary of anyone telling you they are not rare, then offering to take them off your hands. Odds are the putters will have nominal value to a collector. To be on the safe side, I would send the info to Ping and get their thoughts on the rarity (if any) of the putters.

If they were special to your father, you might consider keeping them in the family. My suspicion is you will not be impressed with the monetary value of these putters. However, sentimental value, especially for future generations of your family, may be immeasurable. Food for thought at any rate.

Thanks for all your help!!!   I have thought about calling Dalton (the PongMan) to see if he can evaluate.  I have his old guide but not the new one.

Ebay scares me.  I would hate to sell  them and then find out that I was ripped off because of ignorance.  I love GolfWRX for this very reason.......

Dan.....Thanks for the info - Noticed you were from the Pinehurst area.  I had the privilege of playing #2 with my father after the US Open.  Amazing course!!!

They are not worth much, I can take them off your hand for you.    Posted Image

Really, they are worth what someone will pay for them.

The P on the 69 did catch my eye.

I know the putters were bought at  a premium back in 99.  According to Bobby Grace's "Guide to Collecting" Book, the Scottsdale 1A putters are circa 66/67. The only thing the guide gives are descriptions of the different models.    I just don't have a current market value to place on them.  Knowing that they were bought at a premium from a reputable source, makes me wonder if they are rare and are they still valuable??????  Is there a specific site for Pings like the cameroncollector.com is for Scotty's?????

I know little about Ping putters, but I have watched the market.  AND, the market is in the toilet.  Of course, you only have to find 1 certain buyer but it's going to be hard for anyone to determine value when many haven't been selling (most are hanging on to the rare putters until the market comes back even more).  Certain brands are still hot (still not as hot as they were) and I would only worry about selling those brands for now.......... unless you just have to sell them all now.  Again, that's my $0.02 and I probably have no clue.   good luck
