Since my dad passed away in May obituary , it is nice to have these racquets as mementos. Also, as can be seen below, these three racquet models are indeed historically significant and include the first popular steel racquet and the first popular racquet with an oversized head. Tennis racquets show the rapid increase in technology since my childhood.

When I was young, the only racquets were wood as represented by the Spalding “Doris Hart” model racquet on the far left which I obtained for free at a garage sale. Doris Hart was a famous women tennis star in the s. I remember my dad had an old wood Wilson “Poncho Gonzalez” model racquet, but unfortunately it was disposed of sometime after steel racquets came out.
