Le Mans Posters 1960 - 1969

Le Mans Posters 1960 - 1969
These Le Mans posters are vintage and
original.
Early original posters from the 24-hour races command astronomic prices if and when they ever surface, and reproductions are abound. Even posters from the 60's are priced beyond the average collector's pocket and the 70's posters are following the same trend. The posters have become so collectible that the official body, L'Automobile Club de L'Ouest, allows them to be sold at the circuit in order to prevent the theft of those actually used to advertise the event !

All of the Le Mans posters are collectible and some of the images are truly outstanding. Beginning collectors should be careful when purchasing later posters to buy only mint copies, as they are reasonably easy to find. However, condition on the earlier posters becomes much more subjective and rarity begins to take priority.

1960 Le Mans multicolor tourist advertising poster with photo by Yves Debraine, France, using the same artwork at that year's official event poster.

It features the start of the 1959 race with all the cars coming onto the course with the grandstands and pits filled to capacity.

Despite not being the event's poster, this poster is actually at least as scarce as, or even scarcer than the event poster and should not be missing in any serious Le Mans collection.

Measures approximately:
16 x 23 inches
41 x 58 cm

More than excellent condition for its age with some minute fraying at the top and bottom which only adds to the fantastic patina of this poster.

The race was won by Paul Frère and Olivier Gendebien in their Nr 11 Ferrari 250 TR 59/60 S/N 0774TR with a total of 314 laps to their name.
