Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi Collectables,
If it was a limited copy of only 100 wouldn’t that be nice.
Well, you know there was a limited release of a collectable
photo of Casey Stoner done, and it’s sold out. But this is
what it looks like. I wonder if the price has gone up now he is
the world champion?
This photo was taken at Casey’s first GP win at
Quatar this year (2007). Looks’ cool! But check out what else I
was able to get my hands on.
This is one of the authentication photo’s taken
when Casey was signing the photo above. Cool stuff eh? I
was introduced to the world of Motorcycle Collectables at this
years Phillip Island Grand Prix when I strolled into the stall
from “Autographed Collectables” and met Miguel Ramos the
Director of the company.
I was mightily impressed by the quality of the
framed collectables, photo’s, knee sliders, articles of
clothing and even the odd boxed/framed helmet. All of them
autographed and authenticated as originals. There wasn’t too
much there I wouldn’t like hanging on my walls or taking pride
of place in my party/bar room if I had one.
Because of the quality of framing
each piece had a real physical presence, it was’nt
like a plain poster. It stood out and commanded attention. I
can see now why people get hooked on this stuff. If you think
about it, having a piece of authenticated memorabilia like
this gives you some sort of physical connection with your
sporting hero. They actually touched it and spent a small part
of their life concentrating on making it look good.
Interviewing Miguel was an eye opener into the
world of the collector and also explained to me how to make
sure what ever I collected had the best chance of being real
and not getting ripped off.

If your a collector or want to be then you need
to listen to this podcast with Miguel. I sure you’ll learn
something, I learned heaps.
