ICONS

Ayrton Senna autographs are highly sought after. There are many fans in Brazil and all over the world. Consequently, there are also many fake autographs or reproductions. We collectors know this and are very careful. This autograph is only the third one I've acquired. All were acquired in France, after long research. The aforementioned autograph, in addition to having unquestionable graphic characteristics, also has an excellent origin. It was obtained by a former employee of the magazine who worked in the post office department.

In 1988, Senna won his first world title, lost to Prost, in 1989, and won the next two. In 1990, then, he won his second world title, again after an intense battle with Alain Prost, his eternal rival, and the famous accident caused by Senna, in Suzuka, in October.

Before that, in July, Prost won three races in a row, while the Brazilian, third in the French and British Grands Prix, was second in the championship, two points behind. It was on the occasion of this French Grand Prix that Senna went to visit the sports magazine L'Équipe, to meet the journalists, take pictures and sign some covers (an estimated ten, the only known one being this one) of this special edition about him, published on the eve of the Brazilian Grand Prix, a few months before, in March.

Created in 1946, the French sports magazine L'Équipe awards the Champion of Champions trophy in December of each year to the most successful “World” athletes. Ayrton Senna won precisely this important distinction in 1990, the year of this exceptional autograph by the pilot who became a Brazilian idol, and beyond that, an international one.
