I have a Parker pen that is in immaculate condition and from the Ryder Cup in 1993. It has been sitting on a draw for a prolonged period of time and has never been used. I would really appreciate someone's help as to how much it is worth. It is a fountain pen and not a roller and has some IBM branding on the lid. I really appreciate the help, thank you.

It all depends on the model of the Parker Bob, I would guess that these were given to IBM guests on the day as opposed to a prize or an award. The most popular branded pen at the time for promotions was the Vector, in which case any buyer of the pen will be looking for change from a fiver.

 

A photograph would help to give you a better idea. The image is of an IBM Parker Vector

I think you would do better to look in a source for info on Ryder Cup collectibles.  Unless a pen buyer were into Ryder Cup memorabilia, the pen would probably be worth less to a pen buyer than a pen without the commemorative printing.

Good advice from Pajero there Bob. The pen is a step up from the Vector, but not by too much. There are ebay sellers who specialise in Ryder Cup merchandise but it is a little esoteric.

 

To the average pen person with no golf connection the unbranded pen would be worth around £30, probably dropping to £20ish as it stands. Sorry, its not better news
