Yes, it seems the retail 86/87 version, altought, if you look closely to the racquet on the extreme right, there are no stripes (bars) below the chevrons...it is the paintjob of the graphite injection but it is custom made for sure (some racquets in the bunch have these bars, some has not...)
Again, if you do have any more photos of Mac using the 86/87 version, I would really like to see them at some point please. What i was originally getting at was that he didn't use the 86/87 version at all in 1986/87 as far as I know!

He seemed to be using a custom racket version of the first generation Max200g until 1988, when he seemed to be using the latest 88/89 "grafil injection" version (or at least a paintjob of it).
