Description

A Martina Navratilova Game-Used Custom Bancroft Wooden Tennis Racquet from the 1978 Wimbledon Championships.  The 1978 Wimbledon Women’s Singles Title was Martina’s first ever Grand Slam Title.  Martina came back from a set down to defeat Chris Evert 2–6, 6–4, 7–5.  Navratilova would go on to win a total of 18 Grand Slam Titles in her illustrious career.  This racquet was custom designed exclusively for Martina and was made to her exact specifications and preferences.  The racquet was used on court during match-play by Martina.  Upon close inspection, you will come to find the following signs of use throughout the item:  All aspects of the racquet are original.  The racquet remains in remarkable condition for it’s age, and has been delightfully cared for over the past 38 years.  The grip shows normal wear and scuffing from use.  The top of the head has worn down slightly from contact with the playing surface.  All strings are intact and tight.  Some light trim wear.  The wood still has shine to it in many spots.  All logos are clear and visible.  The head cover shows some minor wear, but remains in superb condition.  Overall, an absolutely breathtaking item in display-ready condition.
