Hello I’m new here and I’ve had this tire for awhile I got it from my dad who has passed away. I was curious if anyone could tell me if the signature is real. I have no paperwork and have contacted people in NASCAR and they told me unless I have a picture of Dale signing it I will not be able to prove it’s his.. Thank you in advance for any help!!
Hi Courtney, feel free to add an image of the autograph here. Maybe someone will see it here and help. Here is a video on how to post images if you want to take a look!
Hi Courtney, welcome to Autograph Live.
I'm not an expert on Dale Earnhardt, but I've learned enough here to say that I think you're signed tire is real! I'd be surprised if it wasn't.
Let's see what others say.
I have owned a few pieces from Dale over the years. The three below are really good for comparison. I have never seen him end the e in Dale like the one on the tire. That e should always end as flat or as an upstroke. Notice how the tire signature carries down into the Big E. Even for a stacked signature it doesn’t look correct to me. Just my opinion.
Thanks, Brian. You may be right, but the signature has so much of what I’ve seen in a quick Earnhardt on a tire.
When I have a chance I’ll find a few.
Thank you both for the input! I’ve tried asking a former NASCAR official but he told me if I didn’t have a picture of Dale signing it I wouldn’t be able to prove it’s real...
Your welcome.. I also wanted to share this previous link on a tire discussion from a few years ago. I believe Brandon gave thoughts on that tire. Maybe try sending Brandon a message on this site.
Brandon isn't a member here any longer. Do you see the actual tire, Brian? The link for the discussion goes to a different one.
