These great black and white pictures adorned the walls of my study in the days when I was in Motor Racing and making a fortune, then the wife found out about the blonde, and goodbye house, goodbye study, and I have no room for these now, so they are looking for a new home.
I was given them by the man that organised the print offer and he had some of them signed to me personally "Adrian Webb" but they are all in pencil and could easily be removed if you desire with a soft eraser.
I have no doubt of the authenticity of both the prints and signatures, these were done at the time, and I had to wait for my name to be attached to personalize them, they must be now 40 years old.
They have a little age spotting on some of the white area of the prints called "foxing" which I am told can be removed by specialists, but when they are on the wall it does'nt really detract from the look and the original signatures some of which are very precious and all very legible and readable.
If you are a Motor Racing nut these are five of some of the best signed prints ever made...in my opinion.
I have seen one in the odd auction over the years , I have listed them all below with full details of each one, and its condition relating to the spotting in % terms, but as I have said they all look great on the walls, and have the real legends of the sport imortalised for all time.
The pictures are all framed in polished steel frames under glass ready to hang.
I have shown the photographs to match the list below reading 1 to 5 left to right, the last pictures show the quality of the signing and the Donington Official Stamp of Authenticity.
These would look great in any office or study and will appreciate with age and become airlooms of the future, regretably a lot of these drivers are no longer with us but their signatures and memories live on in these pictures.
