I finally got my first DBAP

I know it isn't in the best shape and the grip isn't original, but I got it for a great price.  Here are some pics:

I also picked up another:  Original Wilson 8802 and a 8813.

I really do have a problem.

Game the living sh*t out of that thing!  My DBAP is still in great condition, so I'm loathe to bring it out as much.  Plus the boated original leather grip is technically now illegal.

I had a Wilson Arnold Palmer that was in about he same shape as yours.  I had it refinished in black rainbow PVD and rewrapped the proper piped leather grip over a conforming paddle underlisting from a more modern 8802.  Now, I can play a legend without worrying about value or collectibility.
