...That was until I saw it quite a few times. Even here in South Africa! I subsequently concluded that Wilson duped us Federer fans and this bag wasn't quite as "rare" as Wilson made it out to be.

So now Wilson comes out with another RF Exclusive bag, and let me guess, this one will also come out in "very limited quantity" as a "special edition" to "celebrate Roger's career". No thanks Wilson. I am very happy with my "previous edition" bag which Roger used when he won his 5th straight Wimbledon title.
If Wilson claimed only 500 were made (so as to push up the price) but then made more than 500, wouldn't they be liable to be sued?
