Babe Didrikson Zaharias Personal Set Of Golf Clubs
Here’s a ‘hole-in-wonderful’ opportunity’ to own a piece of undisputedly, the greatest female athlete of all time. Step up to this ‘tee-riffic’ opportunity to own Babe Didrickson Zaharias’ complete personal set of golf clubs. By every test, Didrikson was a woman athlete ahead of her time. From her Olympic career to her success on the greens, Babe was a winner. In the 1932 Olympics she garnered two gold track-and-field medals. Then came golf. She was a three-time winner of the U.S. Women’s Open in golf. And that was just the beginning of her golfing greatness. Practicing for hours at a time, she would hit as many as 1,500 balls a day. Popular on the celebrity golf circuit, she teamed up with some real name-dropping superstars...Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Mickey Rooney...even Babe Ruth. Fact is, Didrikson would refer to Ruth and herself as “the big Babe and the little Babe.” Talk about a long distance driver..Babe could drive 250 yards. She had a gentle and accurate touch on the greens, too. These clubs are packed into the Wilson bag she used throughout most of her career. The bag has her name on the side. The leather bag has seen a lot of action so it’s somewhat fragle, even a bit dry and brittle. All the pieces are there, including the detatched strap. Her Wilson clubs on the other hand are anything but fragle. This is her complete set of 9 irons, putter, pitching wedge and 4 woods. The woods feature her Signature model driver, 2,3,4 woods, all with steel shafts. Also ‘in the bag’ is her favorite putter...a Les Walker “green hornet’ with the original hickory shaft. As if Babe’s personal set of clubs wasn’t enough to whet your collectable whistle, hold on..This package even comes with 2 photographs of her husband with this set of clubs. There is also an exact pulled copy of her birth certificate with an original raised state seal from 1966. Also, there’s a charter copy of the application of the Babe Zaharias Memorial Foundation and Hall of Fame. How unusual, and how rare is this historic Babe grouping? Although she won 10 majors in the 8 years she was a golf pro, sadly she died of cancer at the young age of 42. Think of all the drives and putts she could have continued to make if only...if only. So now it’s your turn...your turn to take a swing and drive home a real winner.
