From the epic, modern-day battles between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer to storied rivalries of old, tennis memorabilia is a great way to capture the time-honored tradition of the sport that is tennis. While it might not be considered a mainstream sport within the United States, especially when compared to the likes of such sports as football and basketball, tennis has an international appeal, which helps make autographed tennis memorabilia incredibly valuable. Tennis autographs and other collectibles can be marketed to a wider demographic of collectors, leaving many eager buyers for a collector who decides to cash in on his or her investment.
The sport certainly has not a shortage of colorful stars both from the past and present. Autographed tennis photos of American greats like Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras are certainly valuable collectibles that will both preserve, and even gain value as time elapses. This common form of signed tennis memorabilia can also capture memorable matches on some of the game's biggest stages, such as Wimbledon or the U.S. Open.
Autographed tennis photos commemorating the sport's Grand Slam tournaments carry more value and a broader appeal. Wimbledon photos featuring such past champions as Roger Federer or Maria Sharapova are not only suitable for a fan of these players, but also collectors of memorabilia from the infamous tournament. Wimbledon makes for one of the strongest traditions in all of sports, allowing collectors of all memorabilia to find value in items tied to the tournament.
Tennis balls are another popular form of autographed tennis memorabilia, and are a refreshing change of pace from signed baseballs, football and even footballs. These eye-catching, bright colored balls are best displayed in acrylic or glass tennis ball display cases, which help to preserve the condition of all autographed tennis balls from any player or big tournament.
Signed tennis memorabilia can also come in the form of autographed tennis racquets, hats and even tennis shoes. Any piece of merchandise themed to this history-rich sport can carry a star's signature and therefore become a valuable item.
