How much was the Muster racquet? I would have sold a kidney if need be.

i raised the question in the classical racquet forum whether TW had any proof of origin regarding the prestige. did Muster really play with that racquet, or was it just customized for him, or do they assume it was for him?
havenīt got an answer yet. whoever bought it should realize, that he may not have bought the real thing. caveat emptor

letter of provenance by Warren Bosworth stating that it was indeed one of Musters rackets would work for me. if the buyer doesnīt need evidence, i have a mint prestige pro(first gen) and iīm quite certain it was also played by Tom:)

my point is that they have a certain reputation that they have built up over the yrs...could they be wrong,,sure.,.. but very likely they are not...

In a couple of weeks Mustard will post a thread about how he has extracted Muster's DNA and created a clone. :)

if people buy a racquet for 600,- ,without proof, based on the reputation of Bosworth and TW, good for them.
iīm sure TW are not knowingly making a false claim. i would just like to know how they know that the racquet was played by Muster and whether they have some proof. Did Bosworth write that down somewhere? maybe in an inventory? that would be good enough for me
iīm less than impressed, that they canīt be bothered to answer.

treblings,

As I previously stated in the other thread, the racquet came directly out of Warren Bosworth's warehouse to our warehouse. On the racquet, there are two stickers one showing it was hit by Muster and the other showing it came from Bosworth's collection. Unfortunately, Warren Bosworth has passed away so we would be unable to get a letter from him or be able to write a letter that he told us. Also for a prompter response, please ask in TW Questions and Comments as we frequent that thread more often.

Thanks,

Brittany

I would rather have Nadal clones. As each one gets injured, the next one can keep playing.

I think I have to agree with you on that one

Brittany,

thanks for answering in this thread as well:)
i would welcome it, if that kind of clarification would come simultaneously with putting the racquets up for sale and not some time later.

thanks

If I knew I would have bought it.
Do you guys constantly check the TW Vintage rackets section? How often do any pro-related rackets pop up?

Thanks.

I wonder if the buyers will hang onto them or try to flip them for an even more insane price?

the price on the prestige pro is not really insane, itīs worth what people are willing to pay:)
itīs important to have good authentification though. at least it is to serious collectors, and at that price it gets serious

It should be hit with at least once. That or smashed. If you get a racquet belonging to a legend one should try it because the world wants to know that feeling, or if that person decides not to even go near it unless he's wearing protective gloves and a hazmat suit, it's disrespectful to the people around him just missing out on buying it, the vendor, the supplier, and the original player. If the buyer decides not to touch it ever, it has no use being intact.

i know that i would play with it(albeit ultra careful:)) not because the world wants to know that feeling but because i like to know that feeling:)

got a prestige pro 1st gen really cheap a few months ago and couldnīt resist playing with it though it was in mint condition and playing with it might result in lowering the monetary value. and i can tell you, it played like heaven. easily the best racket iīve ever played with(in 36 years of playing)
