This is a unique opportunity for those collectors of tennis memorabilia and ephemera. The consigner of this fantastic collection was the president of the Avon Tennis Championship Series in the early 1980s and amassed this assortment of ephemeral jewels over the years. The lot is diverse and contains (28) early 1980s program from Avon Tennis Championship events, dozens of autographs, vintage photographs and personal effects from event coordinators. Autographed 8” x 10” pictures include Chris Evert, (2) Pam Shriver, (2) Tracy Austin, Andrea Jaeger, (3) multi-signed women’s tennis programs (with Billy Jean King, Chris Evert, and others) plus a Chris Every signed Avon visor. The publications include US Open programs, and (2) 1980 Wimbledon, and several program that feature a very young Martina Navratilova. The most interesting item may be the coordinator’s guide to the 1980 Avon Futures Circuit that has schedules, personnel, promotions, pressroom management and other areas.
