Vintage Wood Rackets-The 70’s-The Garcia Cragin 240 Pro Wood and the Spalding Pancho Gonzales Autograph

Check out these Vintage Wood Rackets from the 70’s-The Garcia Cragin 240 Pro Wood Tennis Racket and the Spalding Pancho Gonzales Autograph.

IMG_0446The Garcia was one of the highest performance standard-sized wood racquets ever made in the United States. It was made in the Cragin racquet works factory in Van Buren, Maine and was equivalent to the pro-level Dunlop Maxply Fort, Donnay Borg Pro, Wilson Jack Kramer Pro Staff rackets. It was a relatively stiff racket having a wood frame, and was quite solid.

The Spalding Pancho Gonzales Autograph was handcrafted in Belgium and was made with beautiful white ash wood.

Both of these wood racket frames were at the end of their era and show the beautiful art of the wood laminate in the shoulders, and a more modern paint and graphic look on the shaft.

Collectors should be able to pick these rackets up for between $40-$100 including shipping depending on condition.
