Item Description

Billie Jean King Signed Tennis Ball

Tennis Royalty - GREATNESS ON THE COURT
With 39 Grand Slam titles to her name, including a record 20 titles at Wimbledon, Billie Jean King is one of the greatest tennis players of all time. She held the world #1 ranking in women’s tennis for six of the ten years from 1966 through 1975.

In 1973, 90 million people worldwide watched Billie Jean King defeat Bobby Riggs in the “Battle of the Sexes,” 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. No other sporting event has played a more significant role in developing greater respect and recognition for women athletes. She was named one of the “100 Most Important Americans of the 20th Century” by LIFE magazine.
