Among the most popular golf collectibles is the giant niblick.  Even non-golfers view it in amazement as its size is so eye-catching.  Giant niblicks were produced primarily during the 1920s.  This example was made by Cochrane, and has Cochrane's Bowline knot cleekmark on the back of the head which is also stamped "Mammoth Niblick, Warranted Hand Forged, Fort Mason Picadilly London, Stainless". The face depth measures 3 1/2 inches. The shaft and leather-wrapped grip are original and the head still shines, in excellent condition. If you have trouble making contact with the ball, this is your club!
