Campbell and Lowe Scholastic Tennis Racquet

     

1934 - Almost overnight laminate frames became the way of the future, as it gave the racquets both power and lightness.  Competing with the open throat craze, these mono shafts became the standard for most sport shop sales for decades to come. Colors, logos, and pictures of the top players are what collectors look for. Fine condition racquets are easier to find because they aren't as old. What type of leather grip is on the handle is also a collectible feature. Clover perforations and the butt strap attached over the leather grip were essential to the pre war frames.
