Description



Larry Magid hasn't merely hobnobbed with rock legends over the past 50 years, but with elite athletes too. Here, we offer a huge, impressive display piece (47x37) that was gifted to him after the 2011 Champions Series, held in Philly. In the first round, Andre Agassi took down Series founder Jim Courier, and Pete Sampras topped Jimmy Connors. Then Sampras edged out Agassi in a nail-biter to win the championship. John McEnroe, both a rocker and a tennis star, was also on hand. The signed, personally used racquets include: Andre Agassi (Head, "9"); John McEnroe (Dunlop Maxply McEnroe, "7," personalized "To Larry / Rock n Roll / John McEnroe"); Jim Courier ("9-10", Donnay); Jimmy Connors (Prince Mono, "4-5"); and Pete Sampras (Babolat, faint). (Connors and Sampras appear to have signed when their grips were still wet from sweat.) A plaque at bottom center reads, "Larry, / Welcome Aboard! / From your friends at / Champions Series." Auction LOA from JSA.
