A 1998 winner's ring from Dale Earnhardt's only victory there was the highest selling Daytona 500 item sold during a recently charted three-month period of eBay sales. Racer Autographs tracked the top sold prices from the "Sports Cards and Memorabilia Category" to complete our Top 5 list. Daytona 500 memorabilia is always attractive to collectors.
The Earnhardt ring, made of 10k yellow gold with cubic zirconia and onyx stones sold for $2,500 and came with a presentation box.
A 2002 Daytona 500 ring from the race won by Ward Burton brought $1,400 to capture second place on the top five sales list.
The fourth highest priced item was an autographed and race-worn Dale Earnhardt Jr. helmet and gloves from the 2005 race (at least according to the Kentucky-based seller). The lot went for $1,125.
A buyer paid $1,000 for a 1977 Daytona 500 winner's trophy presented to Cale Yarborough's crew chief, Herb Nab, despite some condition issues. Daytona winners trophies are scarce indeed.
Honorable mention went to a 1998 Daytona ticket stub from Earnhardt's victory race, signed by the late superstar. In high grade and authenticated, it sold for $599.99. A 19991 Derricke Cope Daytona 500 race-used helmet sold for $489.95. A 1959 press ticket from the inaugural race won by Lee Petty, it brought $400.
Only 21% of the 5,849 items offered during the time period actually sold, but that's likely because many of the more modern, mass produced Daytona memorabilia items simply don't attract bidders.
