1962 Willy Mairesse signed Ferrari Postcard

1962 Willy Mairesse signed Ferrari Postcard

This is an official Ferrari factory issued postcard of Willy Mairesse.

It appears to be the only Willy Mairesse dedicated piece of publicity material that the Ferrari factory ever issued and Michel Sauze determined it as having been issued in 1960.

Willy signed and dedicated the card himself on the front.

The text reads "A Sergio avec mes remerciements en souvenir du G.P. d'Italie 1962 W. Mairesse".

The text loosely translates into "To Sergio with my thanks as a memento for the 1962 Grand Prix of Italy".

Mairesse scored his second best place of his career during that 1962 Italian Grand Prix when he placed 4th in his Ferrari 156 Sharknose.

The image of Willy smiling is a rare one of the man that suffered from such deep depressions and who ultimately committed suicide in an Ostend hotel room in 1969.

The card is in near mint condition, especially considering its age.

There are only some very minor knocks to the left bottom corned as visible in the photos.

The rear shows the Shell logo, the Ferrari prancing horse, the Ferrari script logo and the text "Willy Mairesse".
