« Previous Item | Next Item »


A fine example of a ‘Dedstop’ mashie used by hickory players until around 1925 when they were banned because the deep ridged face produced too much back spin which was considered to be unfair. The swing weight is D7 and the length is 37.25” (95cm).

The head is clearly stamped ‘Spalding Gold Medal’ within an oval circle with two roses either side which is a cleekmark that they used from 1907-1919. There is also a hammer cleekmark at the toe end which is another well known Spalding stamp. The sole is stamped with the model name ‘Dedstop’ Reg. US Patent, Mashie 1.

The head has been cleaned, polished and the bottom edge re cut to remove old stone dint marks and remains tight to the shaft.

The straight shaft has been fitted with an old period grip in keeping with the age of the club and whipped with black waxed linen thread.

A.G. Spalding

A.G. Spalding & Bros were founded in 1876 by Albert Spalding who was a baseball player and managed the Chicago White Stockings. Spalding’s were known for their baseballs and basketballs before branching into the manufacture of golf clubs in America during the mid 1890’s. They arrived in Britain at the turn of the century spending large amounts of money on both opening retail outlets throughout the country and two manufacturing plants around 1905 , firstly in London followed by Dysart, Fife, Scotland. The retail shops sold general sports goods including tennis and exercise equipment.

Many iron heads showing the ‘hammer’ cleek mark and stamped ‘hammer forged’ were produced at the London factory and sold to professionals throughout the country for club making. Heads produced at the Dysart factory are stamped with the ‘tong’ cleek mark and another mark often used is the ‘anvil’.

Spalding’s are also famous for their golf balls. In 1898 they signed a contract with Harry Vardon the British Open Champion to endorse their gutta percha ball called the ‘Vardon Flyer’. It paid off because in 1900 he won the US Open and then toured the country promoting the ball. However the success was short lived because the rubber wound ball was gaining popularity. They went to develop numerous well known balls such as The Gold Medal, The Wizard and their Top Flite brand.

They enjoyed great success with their Kro-Flite matching irons and woods in the late 1920’s producing vast quantities as well as other models such as the Thistle, Dundee, and Firebrand.
