What’s Happening?

One of the most unique collectibles in NASCAR is a Hero Card. We asked fans on social media for some of their favorites, but how can fans looking to start their own collection for the first time get their hands on these cool pieces? Here is the ultimate guide to getting your hands on NASCAR hero cards.

  • A hero card is a giant version of a trading card. It usually features a picture of the driver, along with a variety of other information and art, like sponsors, paint schemes, performance statistics, and more.
  • They make for interesting collectibles for race fans. And, of course, they also make for great autograph templates when at the race track.
  • Fans and collectors love to get their hands on these hero cards. They are a must for any race fan, especially if you plan to meet your favorite driver in person.

How To Get One

Sometimes, fans can get their hands on a hero card at the race track. That usually comes through special access to a team or a sponsor via a VIP or Garage Pass. Sometimes they are on hand near driver haulers or at sponsor displays.

It is possible to get a hero card without being at the race track. Sometimes, fans can mail a self-addressed, stamped envelope to teams or the sponsors directly. Big Machine Racing is one team that does this, and they specifically request an envelope that fits an 8.5”x11” hero card. This usually costs $1.35 plus $0.24 per ounce, so, expect to fork over around $2 or less at the post office.

Other times, fans can fill out an online form to receive a hero card. Sheldon Creed is a driver example, and he sent his hero cards autographed to fans. Andy’s Frozen Custard is an example of a sponsor giving out hero cards online.

It’s best to look on teams’ and sponsors’ websites for where to find hero cards. Not every team or sponsor does so, however.

In the Stands
