Dale Earnhardt Jr., other NASCAR drivers add U.S. military inscriptions to upcoming Press Pass set


By Chris Olds | BSCM Editor

Saying that Dale Earnhardt Jr. signed for a Press Pass NASCAR product isn’t really a headline these days — but in the past it might have been.

Saying that Junior signed a little something extra with his signatures? Now that’s a keeper — and the keepers will be found in 2011 Press Pass Stealth, which will include a salute to the military when it arrives on June 1.

The No. 88 Chevy driver added inscriptions “God bless our soldiers” as well as “Semper Fi” to some of his signatures in the product as well as a simple “Thank you” that will be found in packs along with other drivers who signed messages for members of the military (or their families) who might find their cards.

The product — “for those who serve and collect” — will also include commemorative insert cards for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and U.S. Coast Guard as part of the product, which will feature a military-inspired design.

Every 24-pack hobby box will include one autograph and one race-used memorabilia card. Bonus hits will include selected U.S. Military cards or POW/MIA commemoratives.

    Dale, Jr makes a nice gesture to our military and you have to make a snide remark in your first sentence!

    At one time a few years ago, Earnhardt had a serious back-log of autograph cards yet to be signed. That’s what it’s in reference to.

    Hello: My name is Art Guzman, and would like to confirm a rumor I heard. My daughter just joined the “Army National Guard”, and was told that her name would be appearing on Mr. Earnhardt’s car in November in Joliet, Illinois. My daughter’s name is “Alyssa Guzman”. Would you be so kind as to clear this up for myself and daughter.
