Nice find, Bartali.  It would be nice to have a few quid in your back pocket for a few treats there Wink

I would imagine the Fignon jersey might go a little bit more than €350-400


Bartali

It's lucky there are no maglia rosa else it might have been expensive!!!

So are you after something in particular or just browsing? Who would have worn the yellow above?

From the palmares of a certain rider ...

1948
1st Overall Tour de France
1st Mountains classification
1st Stages 1, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15 & 19

Only came 8th in the Giro mind.

Yes I know that and the following year the palmares of another rider were virtually the same with the addition of winning the Giro also.
So where is the joke as I didnt start reading the "Bicycle" magazine until 1952 and the "Comic" about the same time.
I can understand it was a good year for Gino but I am mystified about it being good for a poster on here.

Pedantic correction would be.
Instead of "good for me", it had been "good for my namesake", would have made more sense
Bartali

The 'joke' was that I was conflating myself and the other Bartali. Obviously not that witty after all.

You must thinking of someone like me, six months older than Eddie.
mr shifter

Very Happy WoW - The year before Gianni was extremely good and memorable for me.
The great UK Freeze.
Car license plates started with an "A".
The Dartford Tunnel is opened.
Another Brain Dead Auditor laid plans to destroy the Rail Network.
The Great Train Robbery.
The assassination of President John F. Kennnedy,
What a year that was with all the rain in August.

When I saw this picture I thought it was Gianni Bugno's. (No Italian markings on his sleeves though)

So Eddy had his Big "O" last year and so did you.  Rolling Eyes
I know these things because I had mine before you.  Sad
Eddy's birthday is next week.
