Just out of curiosity, how much is a 8/10 condition Wilson PS85 SV worth nowadays?

It really depends on how much of a sampras fan you are, amd how much you buy into the st. vincet hype . . . They are selling for the number suggested above, but that doesnt mean its actually worth that.

Yep. When I bought it I figured it was a later model. Thought it would be fun to hang on the wall. Got it home and realized it had red primer and the SV codes. Its still hanging on the wall, but if the prices keep getting crazy, well everything is for sale. :)

They actually used to be worth a lot more, on the order of $4-500! Now, with the sampras hype dying down a bit, they're "only" worth about 200, as mentioned above. You can often find some even cheaper than that, so you have to get the right offer, obviously ;)

i sold mine in 8/10 w/ original fairway grip and original case for $140 on these boards a year ago...you might be able to get more, but it took me a week or two to sell mine.

Yeah, they don't seem to garner the same high prices they did a few years ago. I would say, today, one would be lucky to get even $140 for one. Remember that every year the SV's get older (and if played with, more beat up) since Wilson stopped making them in 1991.

yeah, there seems to be some SVs popping up here every now and then...but the value seems to get lower and lower....

Purchased mine at a local tennis store for $60. Mint condition

Keeping it as a collector's item... wouldn't sell it period.... it's part of tennis history/lore

I sold a mint condition St Vincent a couple weeks ago for $555. During the same week, a lot of St vincents were going for about $250 that were in 8.5/10 condition. The market for St Vincents is very unpredictable. Sometimes you'll be lucky to even get $100 for it. Other times, people will pay top dollar for it.

Used racquets on auction can swing widely...all it takes is a couple of people to bid up a price so it's really hard to know where it will land. I probably paid 2x what I would have paid for some used racquets simply due to 1 additional bidder who was as aggressive as me

i sold mine for a prestige classic and $50. i bought it for $50 off craigslist so it was a good deal. it really depends on the condition. mine was maybe 7/10 and i got $150 for it so pretty good.
