Vintage 1950's Alberto Ascari business card

ascari02
!

This is a vintage early 1950's Alberto Ascari business card with his personal adress at 60, Corsa Sempione, Milano, Italy.

Alberto is one of the most famous Ferrari racing personalities of the 1950's, having been crowned Formula 1 worldchampion 1952 (winning ALL 6 races in Europe, his attempt at the Indy 500 failed after 40 laps...) and 1953 and is 1 of only 2 Italian Formula One Worldchampions.

Alberto also won the 1954 Mille Miglia.

One of his most famous moments is probably the 1955 Monaco Grand Prix where he launched his Lancia D50 into the Monaco harbour!

One week later, May 26, 1955, while testing a Ferrari sports car at Monza, he crashed fatally at the Curva di Vialone which would later be renamed the "Variante Ascari" in his honour.

This business card measures some 10.5 x 7 inches (approximately 4 x 3 inches), is in good condition for its age (bar 2 staple holes) and carries the handwritten text "Ringraziando Vi contraccambio vivamente" which roughly translates into "I kindly thank you in return".

Only 1 available.

!

3 B&W photo prints of the Ferrari 500 of Charles de Tornaco, taken at the 1952 Grand Prix of Belgium at Spa Franchorchamps.

De Tornaco competed in only 4 Grand Prix (retirering in three of them!) and in 1952 he brought the Ecurie Franchorchamps Ferrari 500 home in 7th place.

There is very little know about the man who died at the tender age of 26 during a practice session for the 1953 Gran Premio di Modena in Italy at the wheel of this very same car.

The car is the "customer" Ferrari 500 F2 with S/N 0208 which was the very first Ferrari for Jacques Swater's Garage Franchorchamps and which was raced very extensively.

The prints are modern prints of vintage negatives but we don't have the negatives nor do we know who owns them or if they even still exist so only ONE set available.

Each of the prints measures 5.75 x 4 inches.

Only 1 set available.

This 1952 photo shows Nino Farina en route to a second place on June 22, 1952 in the rain-soaked Belgian Grand Prix at Spa - Francorchamps.

The photo measures some 20.5 x 15 cm or 8 x 6 inches and is in good condition.
