Isle of Man TT Memorabilia
The Isle of Man Government Department of Economic Development has launched a new memorabilia auction service that will allow fans to purchase unique and original items of TT memorabilia.
The memorabilia will give fans the chance to own pieces of TT race history. It will feature on an official TT section within ‘eBay iomtt-com’, called ‘The TT Races Collection’. There will also be links to the site from the official TT website.
The early items available on the auction site include the iconic orange directional signs from around the course, which are being replaced ahead of this year’s races. Every one of these name boards is steeped in TT history and every one can tell a story of dramatic action, triumph, heartbreak, skill and bravery. In total there are approximately a hundred boards and all will be available to buy over the forthcoming months
The iconic mile markers, indicating each of the 37 iconic miles on the TT course can also be purchased. Other items available to buy include the some of the most recent official podium backdrops and the instantly recognizable yellow Shell fuel fillers used up until the mid 1980’s.
Following this year’s events fans will also be able to purchase a number of other unique items all featuring certificates of authenticity.
All of the money generated by the sale of items in ‘The TT Races Collection’ will be invested back into the running of the Isle of Man TT Races.
