How Much Is A 1993 Ryder Cup Parker Pen In Original Box (I Presume) Worth?

Recommended Posts

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

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
