Offered here is a circa 1922-1933 Richie Jumbo Driver. Think jumbo drivers were a new invention? Think again. Large striking face of 2 3/8", and the crown is stamped "W.L. Richie" and "Addington." According to Jeff Ellis, "only one other example is known." Excellent condition with some marks on the clubhead. 

This club originates from the famed Jeff Ellis Collection, and this exact club was featured in his books The Clubmaker's Art (TCA 1, p. 488; TCA 2, p. 617). This club has not reached the collector market since its sale at the 2007 Sotheby's auction of the Jeff Ellis Collection.
