Description
Montegrappa - Roller ball - Ilie Năstase Retro 73 Limited Edition ISICNRWL
Italy - After 2000 - As new - unused

The Ilie Năstase Collection is limited to 479 Rollerball Pens.

Barrel is made in a light-coloured wood recalling the tennis racquets of the Năstase era, personalised with his signature in red colour. Leather features signifying the racket handle.

One side shows a tennis ball making contact with the racquet while the other side shows Ilie’s mid-finger gesture, typical of his more nervous moments.

The fine details are fashioned in dark blue resin, with the final junction before the nib realised in the colours of the Romanian flag, to recall Ilie’s favourite elastic wrist-band worn during matches.

While the record books remember Ilie Năstase as a six-time Grand Slam winner and world number one, history will always remember him for what he brought to the court. The swagger, the speed, the look…the attitude. ‘Nasty’ was known as an innovator and entertainer extraordinaire – much like this retro-aware, sportive piece featuring unique forehand and backhand modes.
