Now on eBay
Do you follow sportscar racing? Are you a collector of sportscar racing memorabilia or merchandise? Some feel that there is a big difference between auto racing merchandise and sportscar racing memorabilia. Generally speaking, merchandise is an item that we make use of or put on, such as watches, gloves, and shirts. In contrast, memorabilia is typically defining items that have some value. A lot of collectors, reckon that memorabilia to be limited edition model cars, die cast cars, and so forth.
But where do super cool and rare merchandises, like vintage racing jackets, or specifically, something like a a 1960s NHRA jacket? Are they merchandise or memorabilia? They’re not made anymore. And perhaps the name of the particular event they represented has been change such as how NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was called the Grand National Series from 1950-1970 and the Winston Cup Series from 1971-2003. I think vintage racing jackets, though merchandises technically, fall into the memorabilia category when it comes to car racing collections.
So now, where do you get vintage racing jackets?
There are many online sports collectors and specialty shops in the car racing niche. Doing it this way, you can go to eBay and search for the phrase “vintage racing jacket,” or you can search for something in particular, such as a “vintage Winston Cup racing jacket.”
GO TO THE EVENT
The particular events, themselves, are another great option that you can look for car racing memorabilia. Sellers of vintage car racing jackets and other apparels are there for you to shop. However, selections are likely to be limited.
YARD SALES / THRIFT STORES / FLEA MARKETS
Yard sales, thrift stores, and swap meets are a handful of other places that you can go about finding car racing memorabilia for sale. Yard sales, flea markets, and thrift sports typically specialize in the selling of used items, but you may be surprised with what you see. You are more likely to find a “diamond-in-the-rough”.
