Presented is Pete Sampras' personal match used and signed racket. Sampras' iconic Wilson Pro Staff has an 85 square inch head and is customized to all of his specifications. The racket has his customary stencils of both Wilson and Babolat logos on the stringbed, as well as power pads in the throat. Lead tape is installed throughout the racket head, and a signature Tourna grip is applied on top of the leather grip base. 

"Pistol Pete" is among the greatest tennis players of all time and his racket is incredibly rare. Sampras was the first man to achieve 14 Grand Slam singles titles, as well as six year-end #1 rankings and seven Wimbledon titles.

The racket is accompanied by a letter from Sampras' agent Jeff Schwartz. The racket was given as a gift to a celebrity Pete Sampras fan.
