    Tennis racquets

    So bought this locker for $450 cause it was strange with all the cardboard barrels and 4 steamer trunks. Turns out it was a tennis racquet collection. Around 300 of them from about 1900 to 1970 in vintage. A lot of other memorabilia as well. I have barely begun on it. Many of the racquets are worth little but there are about 50 of them that look to be worth something. There was an antique racquet vise as well that was used to hold them when stringing them.

    I've never done a storage unit before, but this looks like you did really well.

    Let us know how this locker turns out after you get done. Your posts are making me want to go to a storage auction.
