there's a place in Yorkville that sells numbered or autographed prints, of course some cost a arm & a leg, but some are kinda reasonably price, pretty much everything they sell is rare, they have driver's racing helmets autographed, steering wheels, etc etc, check them out.
MOTORSPORT GALLERY 136 Yorkville Ave., Toronto 416-975-5442, collectorstudio.com
You can lose yourself in nostalgia at Morry Barmak's shop on Yorkville Ave., just east of Bay St.
Says Morry himself: "If people have been contemplating buying something from our gallery all year, now is the time to do it. Keep in mind we have 2,500-plus items in inventory, so these are just a few suggestions."
Okay, Morry. What's hot for, say, somebody interested in Ferrari?
"How about a 1959 Ferrari Yearbook/Annual signed by Luigi Chinetti? It's in very good condition and you can have that for $1,695. Or a 1967 Le Mans original poster showing the 275 GTB/4? It's on sale here for $995."
Well, what's available for the Vintage sports car enthusiast?
"I have a 1964 black-and-white photo at Le Mans autographed by both Dan Gurney and Carroll Shelby. Briggs Cunningham is in the picture too. The price for that is $125."
I've seen that picture and it's terrific.
What about something for the F1 enthusiast this year?
"I have a 1965 British Grand Prix program signed by Jim Clark ($1,695) and a 1994 Imola GP program signed by Ayrton Senna ($5,995). They are prizes. Oh, and I have a 1995 Australian GP FIA grid list, signed by every driver in the race ($595).
"I also have the helmet that Michael Schumacher wore when he won the last Grand Prix of his career, at Shanghai in 2006. It is a spectacular piece of history. Anyone interested will have to email me for the price."
