The King - RICHARD PETTY Autographed Large Promo Print - Comes with a certificate of authenticity.
This 8.5x11 photo is printed on heavy semi-gloss card stock and was made for his 1992 Fan Appreciation Tour. The back has Richard's bio as well as logos from Pontiac and STP (remember them?) It's in great shape except for the big crease on the left side (see picture). This is truly a piece of NASCAR history!!
"The King", as he is nicknamed, is most well known for winning the NASCAR Championship seven times (Dale Earnhardt is the only other driver to accomplish this feat), winning a record 200 races during his career, winning the Daytona 500 a record seven times, and winning a record 27 races (ten of them consecutively) in the 1967 season alone. (A 1972 rule change eliminated races under 250 miles (400 km) in length, reducing the schedule to 30 [now 36] races.)
Petty is widely considered one of the greatest NASCAR drivers of all time and is one of the most respected figures in motorsports as a whole. He also collected a record number of poles (127) and over 700 top-ten finishes in his 1,185 starts, including 513 consecutive starts from 1971–1989. Petty is a member of the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
