Now, for this poster you really are going to have to dig deep. It is an extremely rare original poster from Le Mans 1959, and it will be supplied in its original cardboard tube. It has only recently come to light, and has been looked at only rarely, too.
What makes it very special is that it has been signed by none other than Carroll Shelby himself! You may recall that in the days before Cobras and GT40s, CS was an accomplished race car driver, and, in John Wyer’s Aston Martin team, he won Le Mans - in 1959, of course.
So now you see why we’re featuring a non-GT40 poster on these pages. We understand that the last time an original 1959 LM poster was sold the price was about $5000, so we’d expect this signed copy to go for rather more than that. If you’d like to put in a bid, just let us know, and we’ll put you in touch with the owner.
