    Yeah, I know... you can't open a thrift shop unless you have 10 Kramer auto's, a typewriter, a polaroid camera, and a sewing machine. That being said, the Kramer auto was a big part of my life, and the Stan Smith was my brother's stick. Every girl we knew had the Chris Evert, and the kid we called Neanderthal swung the Pro Staff - he had so many tourna grips on it it measured 5 3/4... At any rate, here's the rack of 'em. [​IMG]


    That being said... there is a pretty neat one in the bunch - a Kramer auto where the crown has 7 points. I'd never seen one of these until it came in the mail with the "set of 2 Kramer Auto's" I picked up on the bay.

    I know you've got more Wilson woodies out there... let's see 'em (and nothing obscene - don't want to see [any male] Wilson's thingie...). ;-)

    Wow...

    Head Edgewood... had forgotten about that stick... way jealous. :)

    Gosta name the frames though - don't know the one 2nd from the left, and the 3 inside the woodie (prince Kine), I'm unfamiliar with - I'm an especially big fan of Snauwart rackets, so... do tell :) And Kennex... jeez... didn't know they even knew what wood was... I only knew graphites and composites from them... interesting!
