PHOTOS FOR SALE

  • Pancho Gonzales -- horizontal 9 1/2 x 7 -- nice Wimbledon shot of him hitting forehand volley with old Spalding Smasher racket in 1969 with linesman and fans in background
  • Jack Kramer -- looks like in his 30s or 40s here, in ready position, to promote his Wilson Kramer wood racket
