HOF Jimmy Connors Match-Used Wavex Tennis Racquet, Signed

1999 Wavex racquet used in exhibition by one of the greatest players of all time, and donated to a fundraiser for an urban tennis camp and facility in 2000. At a time when most other tennis pros played with wooden rackets, Jimmy Connors pioneered the chrome Wilson T2000, and remained a Wilson endorser until 1999 when Wavex Corporation signed Connors and wife and fellow Hall of Famer Chris Evert to an exclusive agreement to endorse and play Wavex equipment. It features clear evidence of single event use and wear, including all identifiers and handle specific to Connors. The provenance also includes a BIG autograph registered on the original Wavex racquet case in silver paint. 

In his time, there was no bigger star in the sporting universe. Jimmy Connors won it all and did it his way. A lot. A former Number One Player in the World, he won eight Grand Slam singles championships: five U.S. Opens, two Wimbledons, and one Australian Open -- and his legendary matches with Borg and McEnroe set the tennis world ablaze. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a piece of professional equipment used by one of tennis' most important players and ambassadors. It includes letter of provenance from original owner detailing its history and acquisition.
