PRODUCT DESCRIPTION :

 

Good looking  US local Road race poster for Shelby Championship drivers Auto race.

The track was open from 1949 untill 1956.

 

We were lucky to get a few of these lovely vintage racing posters.

Still showing great colour with fantastic vibrant racing artwork this poster looks to date from around circa 1960's  and originally came from the estate of a race promoter. 

 

It has been printed on to heavy card stock by Globe Printers of Baltimore and would  have most likely been pasted onto boards, fences etc around town and at the race meeting.

N.B. We have attempted to authenticate this poster by showing it to an old school printing business so they could evaluate the printing techniqe and card stock used in the manufacture. Their reponse was that the poster appears to be genuine. However because we cannot be a 100% certain we  have set the price of the poster and a cost that we feel  reflects this and it sold as such. Any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
