Vintage NASCAR apparel is not just a keepsake for hard-core fans. It’s become a trend that is heating up fast.
NASCAR, the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, was first conceived in 1947 by Bill France Sr. in Daytona Beach, Fla and ran its first race in 1948. It has since grown from a small organization to a thriving sport and one of the most popular sports in the world.
Celebrities such as Jaden Smith, Kylie Jenner and Shia LaBeouf have been photographed wearing NASCAR merch. Most popular are the vintage T-shirts of the sport's top racers.
Up until now, sourcing vintage NASCAR apparel was largely found via luck and offline. Thrilling made it easy to find racing memorabilia to add to your vintage collection.
Collectors love uncovering Dale Earnhardt Sr. vintage from his racing years between 1975 to 2001 as well as vintage emblazoned with the NASCAR logo’s bright '90s color palette. Though NASCAR T-shirts and vintage hats are sought after, the most popular vintage NASCAR merch are the vintage jackets made popular in hip-hop culture in the 2000s.
