    I have some old racquets that I love but need to sell because I'm worried about them getting moved every 2-3 years. Put them for sale here and sold one of more than a dozen. Looking at the auction site there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest. So, does nobody like wooden racquets to collect anymore?

    A playing or playable collection seems to be the most popular racquet collection type. Some have little to no desire to play with wooden racquets.

    Seems to be the case much to my chagrin.

    There are those who play wood; but they tend to be a notoriously cheap lot since it's easy to get most of the rackets in 8/10 condition that you are selling at goodwill for next to nothing. NOS (new old stock) fetches more of a premium.

    Dunlop Mcenroe, Head Vilas and Prince Woody tends to hold their value better.

    And unfortunately those are the ones I want to keep. :( Just lowered the price when the moderator gets to it on what I had listed on here. Thinking about putting a 'decent' price on the whole lot on here and seeing if anyone wants them. The more I think about it, the more I don't want to move them or find a place to store them with a new baby on the way.

    Well, listed all together for a (what I think is) a cheap price on the FS part when the moderator gets it. 17 racquets I don't have to move next time (if somebody wants them).

    Zapvor. Guess the link to all the racquets listed got zapped by the moderator.
