Collection of 3 vintage Wilson "T" series steel tennis racquets. All are in good condition and totally playable!

The “T2000” model’s design was invented by former player René Lacoste in the early 1960s, who licensed his patented designs to Wilson. The “T2000” was introduced in September 1967 and last produced in 1984. Though Billie Jean King used the model in the late 1960s, it was Jimmy Connors who popularized the racquet as he played with it for 18 years. Its compact head had a smaller sweet-spot, and increased power and control than traditional wooden racquets. This made it a difficult racquet for the average recreational player to use. Nonetheless, it was a popular model for Wilson; an estimated 2 million were sold.

Chromium-plated tubular steel racquet with clear gut strings. The racquet has an almost circular oval head, and an open throat and open handle down to the grip. There is a wire string anchor system around the outside of the head.
