Yes, 1950 - but mostly concentrated on the 1980's. I have one or two older ones, 1928 or thereabouts and my oldest is a Wright & Ditson Hub from 1895. I also have a few modern racquets, all new, chosen for their "classic" characteristics.
I've deliberately kept away from the really antique ones, partly because of their expense and partly because I had to draw the line somewhere.
