Preserving Tennis Memorabilia

Back when I was 13 we had a WTA event in my town. I would buy the WTA calendars the WTA would put out with pictures of the players. I was able to get several of the players to autograph their calendar pictures. These calendars,however are taking up a lot of space in a drawer I have and was wondering what if any value these calendars have? Would it be worth taking them apart and framing the autographed pictures? In one calendar I have a Lindsay Davenport signature. In another Vaness Webb on the cover,Anna Kournikova on her picture. In another Monica Seles,Amanda Coetzer on their tour picture. In the final one Yvette Basting and Daniela Hantuchova on the cover. Alexandra Stevenson on her pic, Monica Seles and Amanda Coetzer on their pic. Can someone provide insight on the value of these or how to preserve them?

Re: Preserving Tennis Memorabilia

Depends if they have clothes on in the pictures, especially the Anna one. Otherwise, $10 max for the whole calendar.

These autographs could definitely be of some value. How much depends on if the signatures are faded at all and what condition the calendars/photos are in. A good way to find out approximate market values for autographs would be to look on ebay to see the range of prices the autographs are selling for on there (search "player name autograph photo" or something similar).

If you have photos of them signing or proof you were at the WTA event (ticket stub), those would increase the value if you were looking to sell the autographs. Another way to maximize the value would be to have the signatures authenticated by a professional company (PSA/DNA is an example), but that would definitely be costly and you may wind up paying more to get them authenticated than what you would sell them for.

Framing them would be a nice way to showcase them, just be sure if you are going to hang them up that you try and avoid direct sunlight hitting them which will fade out the photo/signature over time.

If Ula Mula’s is worth $50, you’ve got to be sitting on the thick end of $3 million buckaroos! Have you got them insured?

Re: Preserving Tennis Memorabilia

I have one of those huge tennis balls with about 10 autos. I have it displayed in a glass square that is actually for a basketball. They don't make them for big tennis balls I also have a really cool poster from around 2000 that I had laminated . It's been packed away for awhile, but I remember it had Coetzer, Seles, Davenport and Mary Joe in each corner I also have some Australian Open post cards from the early - mid 00's that I bought on eBay. Each one has a different payer . Then of course I have the set of tennis player trading cards from the 00's
