  • Our racing collections

    Fellow forum member Turn 13 has listed pics of several things he found over the summer. Got me thinking about starting a thread to share pics of some of the stuff in our collections. So, here’s the start of that thread.

    Could be a book or a toy car or a flag you found. Could be Indy Car or F1 or sprint car or midget. What ever you collect and choose to share. Maybe someone else will see your item and be able to give you some info about it.

    I found this at a small flea market a few years ago. Reads Indianapolis 500 and Indiana on the front. It appears to be Gordon Johncock race winner from 1973. So this probably dates from 74 or so. Might have been a paper weight or just a nic nac. The back reads Colonial Pewter Hyannis on the back. Included the shot glass for size. Came with a small stand that fits into a notch on the back.

        There are a few pics from '73 because that was my first 500.

            👍. Hey Truth Detector, looks like that 1973 Qualifying picture to the left of your 1973 wall was the basis of the pewter item I posted. LoL.

                      Nice! I like collecting 2D stuff, myself. Ephemera, easily stored:
