Chach, thanks for comment. I do not have these. They are somewhat expensive. I collect these images from auction web sites.

Not really "memorabilia", per se, but I didn't want to start a whole new thread for just one post. Anyway, found this at the local Goodwill. Not sure if it is meant to be displayed in portrait or landscape mode. In any case, I think it will look great on the wall of the display area I'm putting together. I'll post pics when it is completed.
