Description

    1955 Indianapolis 500 Panoramic Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Tragedy struck at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway when driver Bill Vukovich was killed while pursuing an unprecedented third Indy 500 title. The Fresno Flash was the clear favorite that day until he lost his seventeen-second lead and his life simultaneously on lap fifty-seven. Unable to avoid an earlier crash, Vuky went airborne over the backstretch wall, his driving machine bursting into flames after numerous flips.

    Historic panoramic image of "The Unforgettable 500", issued by O'Dell & Shields Studios of Indianapolis, Indiana, has been deemed a "Type 1" by the experts at PSA/DNA. "Indianapolis Motor Speedway 1955" appears at the front bottom. Very minor surface creases at the top and bottom border. Meanwhile the verso is clean white. Overall pristine. Measures to approximate dimensions of 10x43.5". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
