The condition of the Air Race Pilot Entry Form is exceptional for its age. Some natural aging at right & left edge. But very displayable for framing. Very difficult to find this type of un-used Entry Form.

A perfect edition to any vintage National Air Race, Aviation collection, or just a fascinating read. Also a great and quite unique gift item.
