A REALLY REALLY old Butterfly catalog has been posted here:

http://www.mytabletennis.net/forum/foru ... in-my-hand

Looks more like a trifold pamphlet, actually. Pre-Sriver, pre-Tempest, even. Comet??

Note the rubbers - came in "C4" or "D13".

Another pamphlet, perhaps. This one is 4-fold.

What was the name of the 1980ish ergonomic Butterfly blade, that was sculpted for the hand?

Can't swear to it, but I think it was called the "Anatomic".

The old butterfly anatomic is quite different from the usual everyday anatomic handles that we see today.

Anatomic of course, Thanks. Dis some searches for ergonomic, sculpted and a few others, but no luck.
I wanted to buy it around 1980 - but then it was too expensive for a young lad.

Anyone here that know of one for a sensible price, just as a memorabilia racket?

I had the chance to play with the Kenny, Swedish, American, English Butterfly blades in the mid 70's. I used to borrow from my dorm mates. Tempest and Sriver were the cutting edge rubbers back then. Learned to play on a Tamasu D-13 bought by my mom. This was a notch cheaper than the Butterfly "style" blades. These catalogues brings me back to my childhood when I used to window shop, browsing the catalogs for fun things beyond my reach. Forty years later . . . Butterfly blades are still beyond my reach . . . . ha ha ha.

My first custom bat (courtesy of Paddle Palace) was a Swedish Style.
