Ladies and gentlemen...DW and I are embarking on a serious downsizing and simplification in our house size and likely our personal lives(We'll see how this pans out ). As such, I will likely be liquidating my modest collection of vintage rackets over the next few months. This isn't a sales pitch as much as a request that anyone who has done something similar please let me know how it went...do you miss the 'hunt' or the proudly displayed pieces of history? Did your collection find a new 'home' with a collector or did you just 'set them free' and put them out of your mind? My 30 or so 'bare-handled' vintage rackets have no personal connection to me; but they are darned cool because of the way rackets were built 'back then'. The 60-70 rackets from the 1960s through the '80s have some personal meaning, either as models I used during that time or just because they are 'different' along the lines of the Durbin or Seamco Rosewall. I would imagine it would be hard to cull the herd and keep only a very few meaningful frames...perhaps best to simply 'let go'...(like I did with a really nice table saw that was used 'maybe' once a year ). The stringing machine will stay with me as I use it fairly frequently. The vintage rackets, unfortunately, just hang on the wall(with such an empty wall not likely being 'available' in the new house of half the size ). This will be an interesting journey. I can't claim any sort of investment of time and effort compared to some of our 'Classic' members, but the collection is meaningful in a small way, I reckon. Thanks for letting me share a bit.
