I know there was at least one thread on racquet collecting, but what about non racquets? There's tons of other things in tennis to collect. What kind of items do you like?
Old trophies, Lawn tennis equipment (court measure, line maker, etc.) sport cards, figurines, early clothing, little trinkets, balls, ball cans/boxes, old books, autographs, handwritten private letters by famous players, etc.

I like ball cans and boxes. Any condition. Opened or not opened.
Here's a few

I just viewed the utube video, thanks for creating and posting !

Very nice vintage tennis ball can and box collection. The video with nice explanations of the significance of the various type of ball containers should really be apprciated by any ball can collector. Do you have any cellophane wrapped balls ?
