Here are sample autographs of the main deceased NASCAR driver autographs, Following the photos, I will list some general information about each driver that I get on a frequent basis.
Starting from left to right, I will list each driver's date, place, and cause of death as well as notable statistics and common starting prices that their autographs can be found for on the market. These prices are "Low End" prices that can be found on less desireable items such as index cards or tradiong cards. High end prices vary and can be very expensive depending on the item that is signed.
