One of the earliest prominent African-American tennis pros, Leslie Allen won a national championship with USC and rose to a No. 17 ranking in WTA singles play in the '80s. From Allen's personal lifetime collection comes this autographed tennis ball and holder lot of (34), including (3) signed by current No. 3 ranked ATP men's singles star Roger Federer. In addition to the multi-grand slam champion Federer, this group boasts many other top pros, such as Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Anna Kournikova, Steffi Graf, Martina Hingis and more. As to be expected, the fuzzy surfaces of the tennis balls have yielded signatures that are less than sharp, though all are signed in prominent fashion, making for excellent display with a strength range of ("5" to "7-8"), while the few items signed on holders present better. Auction LOA from JSA unless noted.
