A huge collection of Michael Schumacher memorabilia is going to be put up for auction, with 160 pieces for Formula 1 fans to bid on overall.

The majority of the collection comprises pieces from the seven-time World Champion’s career, from signed hats through to car parts, charity football shirts, race gloves, visors, helmets and more, along with pieces from brother and six-time F1 race winner Ralf and son Mick.

One unique piece included is a 1989 bottle of winner’s champagne signed by both Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, set to fetch between $5000-$10,000, in an enormous auction put on by RM Sotheby’s.

The collection totals 160 lots and includes pieces like a helmet from Schumacher’s days in German Formula 3 from 1989 and 1990, to more affordable lots like a collection of Schumacher soft toys.

Price estimates are listed under each item, and the lot predicted to fetch the most money at auction is a race-worn helmet from Schumacher’s first title-winning year in 1994, while he was racing for Benetton.

The Bell helmet comes with a certificate of authenticity and Schumacher’s signature along with the inscription ‘Brazil ’94’, denoting the Brazilian Grand Prix that season, which he won, with the early price estimate set between $40,000 and $60,000. recommends
