A set of Babe Didrikson Zaharias' golf clubs were auctioned off for $31,250 on Thursday at the Nate D. Sanders Auctions of Los Angeles.

Zaharias was an 11-time LPGA major winner and was the AP's female athlete of the 20th century.

The set of clubs is of the MacGregor Tommy Armour variety and is comprised of (1-2) 985T 9 Irons, (3-6) 653T Woods, (7) 152T Double Service P.P. Wedge, (8) Silver Scot #11 Wedge, (9) IMG Iron Master Putter. All are carried in a Hughes patented pipe organ golf bag with four matching head covers.

I for one think we need to bring back the double service p.p. wedge, not to mention the pipe organ golf bag.

You can see photos of the classic sticks here.

Of course all of this just makes me think of this:
