PING by Karsten Redwood City "No Model" Putter with Original Leather Grip - Rare!


As the title reads, this high-grade PING putter model not only contains the "Redwood City" marking with an origin story back to Karsten Solheim's original production location in his California garage, but elevating it higher in importance is the early first run "no model" designation. While this shares many design elements of the 1A putter it is not stamped with that model name. This is one of very few examples unmarked and worthy of the "rare" scarcity descriptor, acting as a limited rookie card run for putter legend Karsten. Karsten finished this putter off with his seldom seen hand made leather grip found on the end of very few of his putters.

These original putters were manganese bronze cast prior to hand ground, sanded and and finished. This lot contains the difficult circa 1959 PING by Karsten Redwood City putter that dedicated PING collectors reference regularly, representing 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. This Redwood City putter comes in great condition and has 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. This putter measures 35."
