    Used leather Mizuno staff bag in brown and black with almost two complete sets of clubs made by Cleveland Orlimar, and Adams. Plus, a few extra wedges made by Dunlop. Almost all clubs have "Grafalloy Attack Lite" or "Adams Idea" graphite shafts. One of the Dunlops is a DDH TOUR Beryllium Copper Gap Wedge 52 degree (Google says this club alone is worth $45 used).

    We couldn't give golf clubs away when I worked at a pawn shop. Try ebay sold listings for a value.

    Thanks. I looked up each of the clubs on eBay. They are all posted for $10 to $25 each except for the copper wedge that is about $45.

    That's $300 minimum. But, I don't want to make 25 different listings and then ship out 25 diff clubs to 25 diff people.

    I'm thinking I should list the whole set on Craigslist for 300 and then let the low ballers offer me 200 and take it.

    What do you think about that?

    clubs are pretty much "throw aways" unfortunately few folks want staff bags anymore....

    I suspect they will be tough to sell for much

    give your price a shot, but I'm guessing you will have to separate sets and take less

    Thanks for the link. That was going really well: $45 for one iron set. $40 for the other iron set. Then it went downhill, "$2 for the driver. $2 for each fairway wood. $2 for each random wedge..." I got it up to $100, but then they wanted me to pay $20 to ship all the clubs to them. So, ~$80 for everything, after shipping.

    I'm going to throw them up on Craigslist for $100. If anybody on CFF wants to meet me near Pittsboro and give me $80 for the set, they are yours. If I don't get any bites, I will send them off to 2nd swing.

    Thanks everyone!

    I would donate them if you itemize your taxes. No hassles and you will net about as much as selling them.

    That's a really good idea. Thank you! They have been on Craigslist for several weeks and not one single person has emailed me about them. I think it's time to donate them.
