Descrizione del libro

12 aprile 2013
Note: This book has been updated as version 1.1 after the author disabled distribution channels due to a single bad review. The author corrected 2 errors mentioned in the review and conducted additional research to increase the list of "known" signature golf balls to 310 with 120 signature golf ball pictures. There are some 3000+ signature golf balls available to collectors and no single source book can list them all. The primary purpose of the book is to assist beginner and intermediate signature golf ball collectors to identify the most desirable signature collection series and to protect the average beginning collector from the thousands of fake and replicated ATTI/Icosahedron golf ball blanks used to create fake signature golf balls with golf ball label printers or "scribbled" hand-written signatures in a well-practiced duplication and fake replication process. The book was re-written to attempt to improve the book's usefulness to beginning and intermediate signature golf ball collectors and to protect them from re-sellers who do not verify the authenticity of the golf balls they purchase and re-sell for a profit. The author only desires to publish books of suitable quality to beginning collectors and to capture fleeting history during the brief time period signature golf balls become available for sale on the internet and then disappear into private collections. All pictures are verified whenever possible as "authentic" golf balls from the author's private collection of "non-pristine" authentic signature golf balls. Pristine golf balls are rarely "authentic" and most often are replica fakes unless purchased in original sleeves or have distinguishing wear patterns. This book is intended for beginning collector audiences, not reseller or affiliate advertisers of auctioned signature golf ball collections. When reasonable and possible using the limited public literature the book details history of selected signature golf balls from Harry Vardon to Sam Snead to Tiger Woods. 1900-1936-2013. Includes pictures of seam markings, and dates of 1st manufacture when known. Includes detailed technical terms and glossary for material science and ball construction as well as performance and testing parameters. Companion book to How to Succeed at Golf M. Hatcher Covers select signature golf balls and sponsorship by companies of Harry Vardon, Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen, Tommy Armour, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Nick Faldo, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. Discusses brief company histories of Tommy Armour Golf, Ram Golf, Faultless and MacGregor (GolfSmith). Removes the discussion on logo themes to a separate book for beginning logo ball collectors. The companion book makes suggestions for collections themes and provides examples of logo collection themes and examples for various types of logo ball collections.

For many years, I have researched and collected signature golf balls and even have a website on the subject. Any time I find new book on signature golf balls I get excited and buy it right away.

This book will be of no value to current collectors and it very well could be a deterrent to prospective collectors interested in researching signature golf balls as a hobby.

The book lists a number of professional golfers and a few stats with very little content pertaining to "The History of Signature Golf Balls." The author has included a number of inaccuracies i.e. Burke did not produce the first "Tommy Armour" golf ball.

His description of Arnold Palmer includes "... is most know for the Arnold Palmer invitational at Bay Hill and the tea and lemonade drink known as "the Arnold Palmer". His nickname was "the King"."

He spent 45 pages on logo golf ball, and devotes an entire page to "Sponge Bob."
