    Description

    1980's Fred Perry Signed Photograph for Ellsworth Vines. Wonderful image of these two fierce competitors in their youth is reprinted in modern format and signed by Vines' 1930's professional tour mate Perry. The two played seventy matches in 1936 and 1937, remarkably finishing with a thirty-five each draw. Perry's black felt tip ink is 9/10. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    The Ellsworth Vines Collection


    The greatest figure of Depression-era tennis, the lanky but heavy-hitting Vines was assigned the title of "greatest tennis player ever" by none other than the legendary Bill Tilden, who makes the assertion in a signed photograph offered as part of the remarkable collection to follow. In four separate tennis seasons of the 1930's, Vines was ranked number one, either alone or jointly, and the tangible evidence of that dominance appears in these pages. The collection comes to us from Vines' son, Ellsworth Vines III, and makes its hobby debut in this auction. Each lot will be accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from the son of this superior athlete.
