    I have recently come across 3 Wilson Prostaff 6.0 85's at a garage sale that I pickerd up. Two of these are the newer 85's that Sampras used. The other is in pretty good shape but it is the original version. I am not sure, but I have seen lots of threads about the Prostaff 85. The bottom of the butt cap has a sticker that says "made in St. Vincent" and the code is BSQ. I was wondering if someone could enlighten me on the difference and what one of these might be worth.

    i think depending on the condition you can make 200 or more if you're lucky

    If the one you mentioned still has the St. Vincent sticker on it and is in good shape - if you even were able to get the case too - you could make $300-400 on e-bay.

    The others which I'm assuming are the "newer" ones as you've described (Sampras didn't use these like you say in the OP) the other one as and "original" one - you could make $100-170 on e-bay depending on condition.....

    As always with these things, pics would help.

    Good score by the sounds of it.......

    Just out of curiosity, how much did you get all three for?

    .....and what is your location?

    I'm not trying to sound creepy, but there are other users on TTW that find garage sale deals like this and they live in SoCal or Florida, which makes perfect sense in PS85 availability.

    Man, i need to fill up my gas and check out the local garage sales on Saturdays/Sundays and possibly all the thrift stores as well. I wonder what i can find? A new Austrian pc600 would make my day. right.
