To honor Roger Federer’s record-setting 20th Grand Slam title, Wilson Sporting Goods has created a Collector’s Edition Platinum Racket Package, complete with a special Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph racket painted in a metallic, glittering platinum-colored paint. The color platinum is widely used to mark the achievement of 20th milestones.
Available at a premium price point of $20,000, only 20 of these commemorative Collector’s Edition Packages have been created, each individually numbered (one through 20) and autographed by Roger Federer following his championship win.
Ten of the Collector’s Edition Packages will be sold on rogerfederer.com with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Roger Federer Foundation. Nine of the Collector’s Edition Packages will be sold on Wilson.com with 50 percent of the proceeds going to the Roger Federer Foundation and the other 50 percent going to Wilson’s philanthropic efforts to grow and build the game of tennis. The final package will be given away via social media.
Special features of each exclusive platinum Pro Staff RF97 Autograph include:
• Symbols representing each of Roger Federer’s 20 Grand Slam titles adorn the inside of the racket’s hoop.
• Subtle design nods to the number “20” are incorporated throughout the design motif.
• An illustrated version of Roger Federer’s signature appears prominently on the throat of the racket.
