First introduced in 1919 and for a number of years thereafter, the Spalding HB putter proved to be a classic design. It gave rise to many imitators, most notably MacGregor's early Tommy
Armour flanged-blade putters. The early Armour 3852 models even formed the same basic "hollow back" found on this and other HB putters.
This example is stamped "HB Putter" on the sole and measures 35 inches in length. The shaft and grip are original. Not only is this a wonderful, historic collectible, it is still to this day an excellent putter.
