John E. Sagi's - Personal Golf Club Button Collection
The major part of my collection is Golf Club Buttons from throughout the World. I believe by displaying my
collection will increase interest from collectors throughout the world. I will also be displaying images and
drawings I receive, even if I do not personally have the button. If you have articles that you believe could help
collectors, email the article to me and I'll post it. Images are improved and upgraded when better images are obtained.
Any and all information is deeply appreciated.
Dixon Pickup's - Personal Golf Club Button Collection
The additon of Dixon Pickup's Golf Club Button Collection and the tremdous amount of history of the club buttons.
He has made this website a true research site and has given so much knowledge, especially on the pre 1940 buttons, where
it would be near impossible to find at this time. He is welcomed as a fellow collector and I consider a true friend.
Martin has helped with images, researching and identifying golf clubs. He added many club button images
that were not listed and helped in the growth of the website.
Alan has helped with his knowledge of the older golf clubs, especially the defunct and clubs that have changed names.
This knowledge is bringing life to clubs that closed long before the internet developed, and have been lost.
Lois has been my mentor since 1996, when I first started my collection. She was the secretary of the National
Button Society for 44 years until retiring in 2007. She has a small, but nice all around Golf Button Collection
including a few golf club buttons that I didn't have and graciously allowed the images to be posted to my website.
Lois was always there, when obtaining golf club buttons were hard to find and I needed my spirts lifted. There
were always kind words to pick me up, dust me off and keep me in the game. You can not ask for a more sincere friend.
Lois Pool's Collection
Carl is a Class A PGA Member, PGA Quarter Century Club Member, PGA President Council and has been a great help with
golf collectables. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge of golf history, which helps us with researching the
golf clubs. As you view the website you'll find many golf club collectables from his collection.
He is a Senior Golf Course Management Executive with 30 years of experience.
My Humble Beginning
When I decided to take my Golf Club Button Collection and put it on the web, I never figured the interests of the
Golf Clubs, especially the older clubs, to have such a tremendious response.
Shortly after activating the webpages, I was contacted by fellow collectors, that while researching the older clubs, they were
finding information on old scorecards.
I remembered that back in 1996, I had created a coded golf club database of all US golf clubs, including the defunct and courses
that had changed their name. I believed it would help with time lines of the older courses that much iinformation has been lost
through the years.
I started to create pages for my other collections and realized they could help other collectors in identifing the collectible.
While scanning my postcard collection, I noticed they had many old courses that no longer exist.
In 1996 my intentions were to display the defunct clubs on the web, so they would not be forgotten. The coding of the
clubs would help to connect the clubs. This was a short lived concept due to the lack of interest from the major golf
establishments and the expense of website storage.
I decided to put my other golf club related collectibles to the site. My golf club coded database will help to link the
US clubs to all their collectibles, such as: Golf Bag Tags, Golf Ball Markers, Golf Club Postcards, Golf Club Scorecards,
Golf Club Jackets and Golf Club Patches. Every club page will have a list and link to their other possible collectibles.
This is a work in process and some of the images were sent to me back in the mid 1990's when scanning wasn't that good.
I'll update any images I receive that will improve the image presented. Please send the image of the actual size and
let me reduce its size. Both front and back images are preferred.
I'm looking to add a overseas database of a similar concept to the Us codes.
