How much are autographed racquets worth?

As you guys know I played with Djokovic a few years back and he gave me an autographed racquet, Uniqlo sweatband, hat, and ball. Now these are cool and all but they just sit around bc I'm told not to play with it, etc. How much would these worth in the future and should I wait till he retires to sell it?
 
I have Fishbach racquet


It must be worth a fistful of dollars



Maybe even a few dollars more for a spaghetti racquet. Actually Fisbach could do a good Eastwood impression

$2000 per racquet easily!

EDIT: Sorry, I thought you were talking about Federer autographs. For Novak's autographed racquets, $400 max.

Are you serious? First thing i would do is hit with the damn thing! Before you sell it to me for $50 I insist you hit with it.

How you ever going to sleep at night if you know you had Djokos racquet for so long and never hit with it?? And wear the hat and sweatband while your doing it!

The value of any such items is mainly dependant on their "Authenticity". You'd need independantly verifiable documentation that proves that Djokovic actually autographed the items himself personally. (Video evidence may not suffice because it alone does not prove the items are the actual items).

Saying that, I imagine the longer you hold on to those items, the more valuable they could become. Many people believe Djokovic may eventually move into Politics. One day he could become President of the Republic of Serbia. If that were to happen, the value of authentic Djokovic items would probably increase significantly.

He gave you one of his rackets or a random Head Speed racket with his autograph?

I would play with it, racquet imo is not doing any good in the closet
if I decide to sell it, I would find a crazy-jokovich fan to sell to (authograph stuff imo is only worth what someone is willing to pay),
to a federrer fan like me, your raket its worth $20.. but to a joko fan,,, $1k+ etc...)
if the price you get offered is not worth it to you, then use the hell out of the racquet yourself.. but,,, take pictures of it when it was in good contition first.. :)
again imo..

Sounds about right but let us trying to find a crazy djokovic fan haha. Tbh it's just eating space and I want to get rid of it, in the end I don't think it'll be worth that much diff vs stock

Well, I think that dr325i has it right. If you did get one, and it was used in matches and otherwise unused, I think that a few thousand would be reasonable. Personally I wouldn't care about whether or not it was autographed. If it were used in a slam that he won like one of the four he gave away at Wimbledon, then it would be worth I think at least $1k more.

I was wondering the same thing. I have an unused Head Instinct Mp autographed by Maria Sharapova.
I don't think that it would be worth very much but I'm not a Sharapova fan (the screaming is a turnoff). You could go look on the auction site to see what her autograph is selling for.

Stock frames signed by pros go for less than $200 usually. I’ve sold stock frames signed by Isner, Hantuchova, and Ferrer and they’re all under $200.

No - but I have a Becker signed Estusa PB - not for sale!!! Will get it into my casket after death!
I understand you. I got my own Prince Magnesium Pro 90, Pat Cash racquet, quite rare itself, it wasn't his own of course, it was the model he used when won Wimbledon 1987 ( the last non composite racquet won a GS tournament ). Suddenly i met Pat Cash at tennis tournament and he signed this racquet.
