Actually there are Vinnie Richards, Rod Laver and 2 Lew Hoad photo signature versions, as well as Okker, Pohmann and Gunthardt signature versions amazingly!
Cool never saw those.......I first started playing in the late 60s in Jrs and always remembered how many Forts, Slazenger 1, Halliets and Kramers dominated.....my first Wimbledon in 1968 I remember seeing soooooo many Forts and Salzengers........I have 3 Forts in my stash.....favorite was the 1982 version with the large Red DUNLOP on the flake above the grip......best looking of them all.
