1995 UD NASCAR Racing #151 Richard Petty Autographed Hand Signed Card - 1995 Upper Deck card of NASCAR's greatest: RICHARD PETTY - Comes with Certificates of Authenticity

(Note: Due to the shiny surface of the card, it doesn't do pictures well... it's a NICE looking card in person!)

Petty is a former NASCAR driver who raced in the Strictly Stock/Grand National Era and the NASCAR Winston Cup Series. "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.)

Statistically he is the greatest driver the sport has ever seen 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. He was inducted into the Hall in 2010.
