 Start your engines! Ripley Auctions will present a catalog auction of iconic memorabilia at Antique Helper’s auction house on May 26 th , starting at 11am.  This sale draws from the collection of TL Meadows along with a few other private collections and will be offered live and online. 

Over 200 lots will be sold in an online catalog featuring original oil paintings, pennants, pit badges, race suites, crew shirts, autographed items, tin and cast iron toy racers, newsprint and scrap books and much more.

This promises to be a rare opportunity for the lifelong fan or bespoke collector.




  One premiere lot to be offered is the Prest-O- Lite trophy.

This trophy, sponsored by the company founded by Carl G. Fisher and James Allison, was initially awarded to Bob Burman for winning the 250 mile feature auto race at IMS in 1909. The trophy was awarded to various lap leaders over the years until it was retired to Wilbur Shaw upon winning consecutive races in 1939 and 1940.




 Lots include: racing posters, bronze badges, pennants, race suits, pit crew shirts & suit, tin & cast iron racers, news prints, autographed items, Prest-O-Lite trophy, assorted trophies, photographs, random pit passes & tickets. Plus so much more!
