NASCAR, the oldest, most famous stock car racing league, thrives throughout America, especially in the South. Fans follow the successes of their favorite drivers and car makes -- in person, by TV, or on the Internet. One of the best ways to follow NASCAR is by collecting stock car racing memorabilia. This book gives practical advice on how to make this sport your hobby, including chapters on history, die-cast model cars, cards, where to find collectibles, how and why to join fan clubs, hobby shops, collectibles shows, collectibles on-line, and collectibles that are not for sale at NASCAR galleries. There is information on how to classify your cards by condition, how to be a smart buyer, and how to plan your hobby and make a niche for yourself. The Appendix includes an extensive list of fan club and race shop addresses.
