Thank you for your patience. This has been interesting.

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. of New York #35 Niblic hickory golf club with the following distinguishing marks; "Burke Stainless" and the AF&C logo---- Abercrombie & Fitch did not make their own clubs! They were made for them by companies like Kroydon and Scottish club makers and had the A&F name imprinted on them.

David Abercrombie founded A&F in 1892 as an upscale sporting goods store. Forming a partnership with Ezra Fitch, the company continued to expand in the new 20th century. After Abercrombie left the company, Fitch became sole owner and ushered in the "Fitch Years" of continued success. After his retirement, the company continued under a succession of other leaders until its financial fall and closing in 1977. Limited Brands purchased the ailing brand in 1988 and brought in Mike Jeffries, who revolutionized the image of Abercrombie & Fitch to become an upscale youthful fashion retailer.

I was able to find the golf clubs were made and sold during the time frame of 1890-1930s. The value on the club you have #35 Niblick Hickory with Burke Stainless is 110.00 in mint condition and this was found in the Golf Guide Book. Very little can be found online for the these clubs.
