A manufacturer's logo which reads 'MAXPLY/DUNLOP' is printed on the white laminate on the front of the racket below the racket head. A label printed onto both sides of wooden racket shaft reads 'Genuine/CANE/HANDLE'. Text printed on red material at the base of the racket handle reads 'WHEN NOT IN USE/PLEASE/KEEP IN A PRESS'. The word 'Dunlop' is printed in red on the white laminate on the reverse of the racket below the racket head, above a decorative black, red and white logo.
