    Hi to classic section gurus!

    Is this racquet collectible by any chance? Worth anything? (other than as a Sunday bbq tool)

    Thanks for all the info in advance.

    More than that - these are very rare indeed.

    Interesting. I just feel one more benjamin richer LOL :)

    I highly appreciate our racquet gurus here :) thanks for the info!

    Btw- I found an article from 19 freaking 65's (I was born on the 1976 and my dad was 15 back then, so that is kinda stone age to me) Sports Illustrated, regarding an interview about this racquet with Rene Lacoste.
    He says, he prefers nylon over gut in his frame :)

    Anyhow, after having found out that my prospective bbq tool turned out to be a benjamin bringer, I think I will be listing this stick for sale on the bay :)

    And if there are any offers, I would be glad to entertain them!

    Edit: 120506908891 Is this the same bbq tool?

    Btw- Virg, did you know that I bought an almost new looking Slaz Vilas Pro for $23.43 (as per currency exchange)? I think that is the one you spent $200 on? Am I right?...I just feel great that I was able to buy a collectible racquet much cheaper than you for the very first time LOL :) Just kidding...
    Thanks for the info on the Lacoste!
    PS: I also have an LT330. Do you think that would be worth any dolla?

    Nice find! Any Lacoste is likely to be collectable. :)

    I saw one at the bay asking for $200 (from our good old friend who was banned) - not for me since I am not a collector. I only buy racquets for playing only.
