Spalding Lakeside Racquet

Spalding Lakeside Tennis Racquet - 1905

     

1905 - A classic example of the first part of the 20th century racquet style. There are tens of thousands of them in collectors' hands today. This one becomes more collectible because of the condition. Excellent patina, intact original gut, no warp (found in a bag & press), very little headwear, if any, butt cap perfect, logos without a scratch. This is what collecting these near 100-year-old frames is all about. Not that fancy, just frozen in time.
