Overview

Son of the late Dale Earnhardt Sr., Dale Jr. had a lot of expectations heaped upon him at an early age. He has risen to the challenge, developing an iconic brand all his own and has become not only an accomplished driver, but team owner as well.

His rugged good looks, swagger and accomplishments have allowed Earnhardt  to capitalize on opportunities off-the-track including movie appearances and national endorsement deals. As a result of his popularity, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has a wealth of collectibles, including trading cards, action figures, die-cast cars, prints and posters. A willing signer in-person, he has always been an approachable figure. This has also contributed to his popularity.

Dale Earhardt Jr. has just two rookie cards, both issued in 1994. Despite his willingness to sign, the demand for his autograph far outweighs supply. As a result his signed items command a premium. Some of Earnhardt's most popular collectibles are scale model die-cast cars and figures.

Dale Earnhardt Jr Signature Example

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Key Signature Attributes: An authentic Dale Earnhardt Jr. signature will exhibit several distinguishing characteristics. His signature does have two fairly distinct versions. However, regardless of  the type of item or when it was signed, look for the following signature features

  1. Signed on a slight angle above straight horizontal, with a lean to the right.
  2. A beautiful signature consisting of a fully legible first name and "Jr."
  3. The letter "D" is over-sized and start with a down line and up stroke, nearly forming a narrow loop; the curve of the "D" flows out of that and is completed with a full oval, allowing the pen to stay on the paper.
  4. The letter "a" is a flat oval shape.
  5. The letter "l" sometimes but not always, forms a very small , narrow open loop.
  6. The same is true for the letter "e."
  7. The "J" is pronounced with a larger loop on top, with both loops closed.

  1. I have original press sheets and some cut cards of Dale Jr. collectable cards that had gone to press prior to his death. I got them from a printer I worked with back then. I’m not sure if they were ever released. How would I find out?

  2. I was a graphic artist back in the day working for Anheuser Busch on Bud Racing and Busch Series point-of-sale items. I have a bunch of unused posters and such. One thing I have no idea how to value is several Dale Earnhardt Jr. signatures from the 1997-1998 season featuring his full name “& 3” since he was driving in the Busch Series back then in a #3 car. They are just on white paper. Any idea if theses have value? I’d assume there are a lot less #3 sigs than #8 or #88s.
