    Honestly, unless its one of j mac's old frames, its not going to be worth much, probably about what you paid for it.

    That seems a fair price for the condition it's in. If it was pristine NOS condition you can get upwards of $100.00 for one.

    The Dunlop Maxply was one of the most popular tennis rackets ever used by some of the greatest players ever. Not only did John McEnroe use the racket but Rod Laver, Tony Roche and Virginia Wade - to name just a few - were also users. Because it was/is so popular, it is quite easy to find nice examples for sale. If you check the big auction site there are always at least 10 for sale ranging from just a few dollars for a well used racket to over one hundred dollars for a new old stock (NOS) racket. It is very hard to tell from your pictures but it appears that your racket is in about 7/10 condition and without a cover. Given this, I'd say that $20.00 is about right.

    The one in the picture looks to be in pretty poor condition. You should at least try to clean it up.

    I have one in my closet that I used in tournaments in the early 1980s - it's the only one left that didn't break. The racquets were a bit on the fragile side.

    It might be worth a few bucks to Applebee's, to decorate their walls.

    The rough/smooth strings are a nice touch for that era.
