Description

    1946-2015 Indianapolis Motor Speedway Pit Badge Complete Run of 70. An unprecedented run of badges that provided ultimate access to the most legendary races in the last 70 years and will give the winning bidder an envious instant collection. The presented credentials allowed the bearer a firsthand view of the front lines of the most celebrated racing event in the world, The Indianapolis 500. Enabling them to work among and witness the crews and racing teams as they prepared and participated in the crown jewel of motor sports. Included is the rare 1946 pit badge, it is believed only 500 of these gems were produced. This badge is missing enamel to the central numerals and exhibits surface wear in the form of scattered scratches throughout, but this wear could indicate the original owner was not merely a by-stander in the pits but a full bore participant. In addition to the '46 edition are 69 desirable badges in play for the entire Hulman Era and on hand for wins from the most respected names in the sport, Foyt, Unser, Rutherford, Castroneves, Franchitti and many more. Both bronze and silver badges are present with no BUCs, averaging fine condition throughout the group. A onetime chance to instantly acquire a huge run of Indy badges from seven decades of Brickyard History. Letter of provenance from Dr. Harlen Hunter.
