1985 Ayrton Senna in Toleman Hart kit, newly signed to Lotus, a Portuguese MATEUS trade card



Very early original trade card of Senna. From 1985 this Ayrton Senna shows the great man in Toleman Hart kit, but the legend mentions Lotus. The newly signed Senna arrived at Lotus at the end of the 1984 season just in time to make it on to this series of 1985 new year trade cards issued by Mateus. Portuguese tradition has it that most of their trade cards come with something 'useful' hence the calendar backside. Note: this early Senna was only issued in Portugal, only at the start of 1985. Original. Light handling no major faults. SOLD AS SEEN
