1900 to 1917 Tennis Racquets
The great growth of the sport was taking place now, but the variety of racquet styles on the market were few. A standard "convex throat" look had evolved and for the collector of these near 100 year old frames, quality becomes the quest. Certain company logos are more desirable than standard issue. Racquets found in bags or covers guarantee collectability, when you can find them. Intact stringing and the completeness of the decals along with a lightly used patina mark out a prize in the back of an antique shop.
