Collecting NASCAR diecast race cars is one of the most fun and challenging aspects of building a diecast car collection. It is fun because NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in America today and just about everybody has a favorite driver, team or sponsor. It is challenging because there are soooo many different graphics packages used by each team and driver that it is virutally impossible, or prohibitively expensive to collect all of the different versions of a particular car…even for a single season!
That’s why I find it more rewarding to collect limited edition NASCAR race cars from the fifties, sixties and seventies. These drivers are already legends with many having been inducted into the NASCAR HALL of FAME. And you know that back then, a driver raced the same car all year long so the diecast race car you buy is the one that was driven for an entire season!
In addition, NASCAR does not produce cars from that period in their history unless it is historically significant. Plus most of these drivers are still alive so you also get your hands on autographed versions that significantly enhance the collectibility of your purchase.
Arriving on January 17th, you can be the first to own a fantastic diecast model car replica of Cale Yarborough’s 1968 Mercury Cyclone. Just released by NASCAR this month, only 300 of these cars will ever be produced with Cale’s hand-signed autograph.
