let me be evil here, and try to speculate that if it's maria's racquet, we will be reaching over 10k by now ;)

Geez, if that racket is going for $3,100, I wonder how much my signed Navratilova racket from her last match ever would go for:p

Don't sell it... yet. Wait for a few more years, and then only do so. You'll get twice as much as you would sell it now ;) .

By the way, how can you sell a priceless Martina Navratilova racket... that's mean :p

(If next year Justine wins the FO and / or the Wimby, I will definately bid for the racquet she used to win them (or either one) and keep them until the day I die... need to save my money 1st though.. do they accept vCash?)

O.k., now we're getting a little too picky:tape:

Pleonasm is the use of more words (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Word) (or even word-parts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morpheme)) than necessary to express an idea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idea) clearly. The word comes originally from Greek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_language) πλεονασμóς ("excess"). A closely related, narrower concept (some would say a subset of pleonasm) is rhetorical tautology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tautology_%28rhetoric%29), in which essentially the same thing is said more than once in different words. Regardless, both are a form of redundancy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redundancy_%28language%29).

Good grief...

Pleonasms are the opposites (antonyms) of oxymora. A pleonasm consists of two concepts (usually two words) that are redundant. What does “redundant” mean? Well, how about “more than enough; overabundant; excess; and superfluous”? Still having a problem understanding what pleonasm means? Some pleonastic expressions are also known as tautologies. Tautology means, “needless repetition of an idea in a different word, phrase, or sentence; redundancy; pleonasm.” What about pleonasm? It means, “the use of more words than are necessary for the expression of an idea; redundancy.” So it is that we go around in circles: pleonasm means tautology, which means redundancy, which means pleonasm, which means tautology, ad infinitum. amen :angel:

$10,600.00 USD. Is this vcash?

It's a bit suprise that such a high bid appears in the early stage of the auction. The bid closes on Nov. 27. Normally a lot of people only start bid hours before auction closes.
