This. I used to use mediums. When they were still made.

I've been digging the hemp recently though.

They make them again now. The new firms are close to the old mediums if you are looking.

As I recall George was a really early Wizard convert, so there are probably a ton of great old Wizards floating around BoCoMo.

The story I always heard* about SSS plastic was that George liked his putters soft, so they would run Wizards and leave some in the practice baskets in Davey Mac's yard to sit in the sun and soften up for George. After a while they thought it would be easier to just make them softer and try to sell them. They sold like hotcakes and SSS became a thing.

*as with all stories on the Interwebz, there is a .09% chance that it is actually true.

Probably not, the only wizards with any kind of collector value in my experience are legit first runs from when the Wizard first came out, or old small-stamps without tooling on the back. There's a first run organic on ebay that someone's trying to sell for $30, but none have sold anytime recently.

Even legit proto dont sell for a ton of fast unless new. I am glad mine didnt sell when I tried. Best offer I got in 2015 was $14 for a 7/10 blue proto.
Now the nikkos were similar blend and thin plate the demand may be lower.

wizards dont have that rare collector value but the wizard collectors seem to have them by the 100s
