Overview

Dale Earhardt Jr. is one of the most popular drivers of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. That isn't merely an opinion, it's a fact as evidenced by his 11 consecutive Most Popular Driver Awards.That translates well into the hobby where Dale Earnhardt Jr. cards and memorabilia are equally popular.

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.

  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.

  5. The letter "l" sometimes but not always, forms a very small , narrow open loop.
  6. The same is true for the letter "e."

  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.
