What once held value is now worth just a little above zero. These two tennis rackets are worth something to someone, but finding that someone would not be worth my time spent looking.
Ebay is a great avenue to sell many things. But the market for old tennis rackets is so small that few are selling there.
I think both of these rackets are beautiful. Sadly, my family does not have the space to store them nor the desire to put them up on a wall. So the thrift shop gets them. And at least a charity will benefit a small amount from the sale.
Here’s another tale of wasted beauty.

To quote from Joe Walsh’s great song “Things”: “You can hang things on your wall/ You can leave your things around/ You can mark some things 2001 and put them in the ground/ And maybe later on, they will dig them up some day/ And ooh and ahh, and “how ’bout that?”/ Who knows the things they’ll say?”
Even my kids have zero sentimental attachment to my old stuff.
We should have played tennis at SIL. I haven’t played since college but I have a racket from the Boutique.
Tim, sadly, I am a complete klutz when it comes to tennis. You should dust off your racket, though!
