That really brings back some memories...hang tags on grips! Never saw them boxed, however.

I've still got a couple that have been coiled up in a zip baggie for at least two decades . Not sure what I'll put them on. Those were/are beautiful grips. The black ones were popular when some of the wood rackets had gloss black as part of the finish...Wilson Advantage, Davis Duke and of course the graphite frames like the Aldila Cannon and Trabert C-6.

The black didn't sell as well for us, partly because it was a bit slicker, IIRC. Also, part of the fun of a new Fairway was 'showing off' that distinctive tan color of the original. Then, the Greenie came out and all bets were off!
