Babolat APD original, a future collectible frame?

There are people that collect frames like the Wilson Pro Staff Midsizes, Head PC600s, Dunlop 200gs, etc. for their professional player affiliations......

I'm wondering if the Babolat APD original, non-cortex frame will have collectible interest in the future. That is the one that Nadal was using as he made his name and it's the one that's under his Cortex paintjob.....even though more players now use the APDC frame (or paintjob), a few years ago, it was Nadal that was the most prominent with the original APD.

....just speculating.

I would imagine so - it's already quite sought after now. Obviously, this doesn't secure its place as a classic but I think it's likely that in the future the APD (1st gen) will be a classic, much like the older Pure Drives.

I kind of agree- it will never become a classic no matter how people may argue but it will be collectible and worth more just like the 1st and 2nd generations of the Pure Drive and Pure Control.. I won't even consider the very first Pure Drive as a classic frame. I love these older Babolats and own quite a few too, but classics are different.
