Original c1971 Nixon - Mao Ping Pong Paddles in Package
SOLD - THANK YOU ~ Free U.S. Shipping
These paddles were made to spoof the U.S. - China ping pong matches in the early 1970s, as President Richard Nixon made the first inroads into U.S. communication with China. This 6 1/2 by 10 1/2 inch set is still in the original package. Nixon's paper caricature face is on one paddle...Chairman Mao on the other. Paddles are made of wood with rubber surfaces. Made in Hong Kong. Some minor discoloration to header card. Original, unused old warehouse stock in excellent condition.
