PING by Karsten Redwood City Pat. Pend. Putter '4' with Original Grip


As the title reads, this high-grade PING putter model contains the "Redwood City" marking with an origin story back to Karsten Solheim's original production location in his California garage. While this shares many design elements of the 1A putter it is not stamped with that model name. This is one of the few examples marked with the 'Redwood City' manufacturing site, acting as a limited rookie card run for putter legend Karsten. Karsten finished this putter off with his seldom seen original hand made leather grip found on the end of very few of his putters exhibiting some overall wear on this model. 35"

These original putters were manganese bronze cast prior to hand ground, sanded and and finished. The difficult circa 1959 PING by Karsten Redwood City putter that dedicated PING collectors reference regularly represents the beginning of a putting era. This putter was the predecessor of the modern day putter, Karsten Solheim produced his first putters in his garage in Redwood City, CA before founding Ping. For market reference purposes it should be stated that an over-pouring, but warranted, amount of bids came in on an example of this putter without the '7' weight stamping that we offered in our May 2022 auction resulting in a final price of $11,939. This Redwood City putter exemplar comes in great condition and has deep sole stamps that read "Ping by Karsten Redwood City, Calif. Pat. Pend." Please refer to the accompanying lot photographs for a in-depth condition report.
