You've seen some of my posts in the past. As you might know, some time ago, I decided to assemble collection of autographed photos of every single driver who ever drove Ferrari car at the Grand Prix race. Presently, my collection is almost complete, with exception of only four drivers, Raymond Sommer, Piero Carini, Alfonso de Portago and Peter Whitehead, as well as some privateers from 50s.
My collection includes many rare and unique items: photos autographed by Nino Farina, Alberto Ascari, Eugenio Castellotti, Luigi Musso, Lorenzo Bandini, Ludovico Scarfiotti, and many others. I bought many items from auctions or reputable sellers with good provenance.
I also was able to contact and obtain autographed photos from almost every one of living Ferrari drivers: from Froilan Gonzalez, Andre Simon, Robert Manzon to Michael Schumacher, Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso. I created many one “of a kind”, multi-singed photos. Most of my photos are majestic 8 x 12 inch or 8 x 10 inch, very high quality.
I was also able to contact many people from the management and design team: I have photos signed by Luca di Montezemolo, Mauro Forghieri, Jean Todt, John Barnard, Rory Byrne and many, many others. This is my tribute to the spirit, passion and dedication of Scuderia Ferrari. All in all, I have over 500 autographed photos in my Ferrari collection
My entire collection is available online:
Some notable items:
Recently, I decided to stop collecting and let my collection go. Reasons… a little bit ran out of steam, was not able to add anything new, priorities changed …in any case, I’m looking for a new home for my collection. Take a look and if anyone is interested... let me know. we can discuss all the details. By the way, I live in Toronto, Canada.
I also have many other autographed photos, some absolutely unique: https://picasaweb.go...com/Igor.Entin2
