Need to know if this is the real deal
I believe that nascar drivers are the very best signers of all athletes....only a few are real jerks that won't sign when approached....the young kids coming up are super about signing....kyle larson, chase elloitt, allgaier, bayne, stenhouse, buescher, they have been great signers for several years as they work their way up...it is hard not to like those guys.....and the big guys, dale jr, gordon and johnson are class acts...they will sign when they can....i walked away from Richmond one night after a day of chasing drivers with 73 signatures and found it hard the wrap my head around the fact that there were thousand of people there and i with home with 2 signed items from Dale Jr, Johnson and one from Gordon...plus Richard Petty....what a great ride home, i was on cloud 9......
I hear yeah Tim. with the second pocono race the wife and I sit in the victory circle level 2 section near the walkway for drivers intro and get our autographs that way. the first pocono race one we usually stay near the walkway from garage area to walkway leading up to victory circle got some drivers. others who don't sign there usually sign in victory circle.
With Tony he's a hit or miss guy. We got him a couple of years ago at a signing for Office depot in PA. heard some folks lined up at 9pm day before to first in line for wrist bands. with his sit down autograph signing it was a 1 item and 1 item only. I had a diecast and the wife had a pit road pets and a office depot poster that they used to sell from one of their stores in Del a maybe a yr before they said no more office depot sponsorship. Well the wife puts the items down. the woman who was tony's handler or whomever, said which item do you want tony to sign. the wife said both. she got abit mad and said tony is only signing one item. Now you would think seeing a big poster they no longer sell that you might want to allow tony to sign a sponsors product. I can understand if its a old home depot car but a current sponsor I was like give me a break. so the wife took a hit on the poster not getting signed for a college girlfriend who's a fan of his. Yeah a guy this yr in victory circle wanted Tony to sign his hat as he was going out to drivers intro. Told him don't bother Tony will run up and out the door without even stopping sure as sun rises in east and sets in west did that. told him told yeah.
Yeah Brendon can be like that. unless its a die cast. hes signed it and wasn't personalized. He did the claire b lang show last yr in dover and when we had him sign i believe our tickets the wife said oh i'm a big fan and that she didn't realize that he was doing it and would have worn his shirt to show her support. he was like yeah yeah. Fixed his ass good on Sat. after the race on sat he was walking back on track said to him can you sign the wifes hat which he did. told the wife open your rain jacket and show him. she was wearing his shirt and said see told you she was a fan. he smiled and laughed. he also was nice enough to take a photo with her in his fire suite.
I have had similar issues ... on a rare occasion have been asked who they can personalize my hero card to....that usually doesn't bother me since i don't sell them anyway, but a few years back at Richmond, Brendon Gaughan wanted to personalize my hero card...Brendan Gaughan ! as if someone would buy it...so i took it and moved on....i haven't approached the man since then in at three years....I have always had good luck with Danica at Richmond, without personalizations....was at Dover this spring, she came up and said she would sign after practice...then went out on the track and wrecked herself and tony stewart...so that was it for that day, neither she nor tony would sign ... never had any luck with Tony....I actually like a personalize hero card on occasion, i frame them and put them on the wall....the rest just get put away or i give them to my nephews....
(Cont). well she said to him I wont sign it unless I make it out to someone. well after a couple of min of back and forth he gave in and said here is my name and she signed it to him and her signing it under it. So yeah she's seen the autographs online and said screw it. If your going to profit off me well not going to happen going forward. I heard she is like Tony Stewart If you catch her one on one in the pits she'll sign but I haven't been that lucky. About the only chance I got to maybe getting a autograph was at Dover last yr but said screw it when she came up for the drivers meeting. She was only signing for the kids when she came up. still remember her getting somewhat bent out of shape when the kid who she signed for didn't say thank you right away who was standing next to us. I almost told her thanks for the kid since she doesn't realize the parents are the one footing the bill for the kid to be there. all I want is a diecast signed for myself and a hero card for a guy who likes her. If she said to me who do I make it out to I would tell her my friends name. hes the fan of yours not me.
same here alex. been a bum year for me also with nascar. with the first pocono rained out so no autographs for sunday. Was only able to get Ty Dillon and Justin Allgier to sign their diecast on Sat for the Xfinity race. Larson was in a rush to get to driver intro so no luck there. Kyle Busch and Elliot Sadler must have used the front area to get to stage. didn't see them come up from track area to walk up to driver intro. with me having to work on Monday didn't get chance to stay for race. Bummer my driver won it.
The second one was abit better. The first Pocono the wife and I tried to get cold passes for sponsoring a team. Well Nascar said unless a team car is here for race cant do that anymore. So we ended up doing the second one. had some good autographs. On Thurs was able to get Brad K to sign a couple of diecasts and a very special item I had for a couple of years. Its a miller lite champion beer glass. the same type he drank out of for winning the championship. However, this one says 2012 champion and was used out in Vegas. On fri was able to get some drivers. I was able to get larson to sign a hero card, Matt Kenseth to sign a couple of hero cards and believe me folks he had nobody near him. He was sitting on the pit wall and signing away like ok. got carl to sign a card also for a couple who come every yr to the race. I got the pole winner truex and crew chief cole pern to sign a 2015 diecast on pit road. Ryan Newman who the wife loves signed a couple of things for us and some other fans. The truck race didn't get any. We did however get some drivers who were still in the garage area that day. got ryan newman again, Alex almirola, austin dillon, and regan smith to sign for us. with most of the guys it was hero cards. with smith we got him to sign a couple of his victory lane hats from the second dover race in the xfinity series. Sunday wasn't that bad either. got Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Carl Edwards ( carl after drivers meeting), Denny, Jimmie, Kyle larson, Kevin H, Trevor Bayne, and a few other drivers on a mix of things. Tried to get Jeff to sign a die cast no luck, same with Kyle B. they mostly stayed on other side leading out to drivers intro signing. Oh well. As a added bonus got Guy Fieri to sign a couple of cook books of ours. All in all other then the rain washing out till Monday not bad at all.
Watkins glen we only went up for the day. So no autographs. tried to get casey mears guy said had to cut line off. said no problem got his autograph a couple of times. saw his only win at 600 also told him. hey what are u to do. tried to get off from work couldn't s*** happens I guess.
Going to Dover in 2 weeks and so far I think its going to be bland for autographs. had chance last yr to do a killing at Claire b Langs show but didn't bring anything because yrs past no autographs after guest gets done with their interview. well last yr free for all. But, I have been checking and so far no show this year so strike one. unless brad or kevin is doing a signing and ty doesn't have yuengling beer no luck their with any beer people so make that strike 2. and since I didn't get a chance to do the team sponsorship thing that is only way to get autographs at dover since they don't allow you down into the infield area without a hot/cold pass might as well say strike 3 for me and the wife. Oh well. If we get any I'll post but don't think so that much. I will have to post the items I got signed this yr and see if anything I can put up for sale.
As a side note picture I agree with you about the photo signings of Danica. The wife and I know a mother/son autograph seekers like ourselves told us about a autograph signing danica was doing a couple of years ago in Homestead. He had I belive a well circulated photo of hers and when he gave it to her to sign she said who do I make this out to. well he didn't want it to say out to me just want your autograph on it.

Strange items to have her sign, but I know from the pass that she gets mad at dealers in line that try to get multi-photos of the same photo because she knows that they are only going to turn around and sell them on EBay, but when she see items like mine, she asks what they are, and then she know they are part of my collection, so I never have a problem of her signing.
