Frank Sinatra was a true American icon of the 20th century. Ol' Blue Eyes sold 150 million albums, won an Academy Award, and made Las Vegas the place to be. And in his spare time, he loved the game of golf.
Offered here is a full set of Frank Sinatra's personal “First Flight”irons and woods, a custom Frank Sinatra adjustable putter, Sinatra’s golf bag, as well as numerous other Sinatra golf items. This full set of clubs and original Sinatra golf bag originate from the family of Sinatra's Hollywood landscaper, who was gifted the set in the 1960s by Sinatra himself.
The golf clubs in this set are custom made for Sinatra with his script signature. The bag is in very good condition with a large "Frank Sinatra" in block letters on the front. Also included in this lot are "Frank Sinatra" golf shoes that were tournament pro-am gifts. Other pieces of Sinatra golf memorabilia are included in this lot: windbreaker and original Program from the famous 1963 Frank Sinatra Invitational, and an advertisement for First Flight golf clubs featuring Sinatra – the exact clubs offered here.
***UPDATE: We can finally confirm that this set was Frank Sinatra's actual set used in the 1963 Frank Sinatra Invitational. While this set (and the putter found in Lot 16 in this auction) was always believed to be the '63 set - we have finally photo matched Sinatra's bag. What a significant, and historic, set of Frank Sinatra's clubs!***
