#3 Autographed Goodyear Eagle Tire with C. RECENT CHANGE AS OF 10/08/19, NO LONGER P/U ONLY.
I KNOW THIS MIGHT BE OVERKILL FOR AN AUTOGRAPHED RACE TIRE BUT IT WAS AN APPARENT TIRE ISSUE AND IT WAS WHAT I WAS TOLD. RECENT CHANGE AS OF 10/08/19, I HAVE , AT THE REQUEST OF VIEWERS, ADDED ADITIONAL PHOTOS. And it is safely inside the boxed tire. Was laminated when I got the tire, presumably in order to keep the c.
This race tire has Dale Earnhardt's signature (in silver Sharpie pen) on the side wall and has additional markings " LF-5" and "-25 T". (I believe this refers to Left Front Tire #5 and -25 degrees toe in or tire angle for front suspension). It should be noted that the signature closely resembles several others I have on (certified) photographs and diecasts. Other markings in the rubber are: "D5584", "for racing purposes only", "not for highway use", and EAGLE, MADE IN U.
The tire has the larger yellow letters "GOODYEAR #1 EAGLE". I know that tire manufacturers stamp date codes into tires so this one (known to predate his death) may depict the tires manufacture date but I do not know how to decode any stampings within the rubber or on the tire. THIS TIRE MAKES A GREAT GIFT, CONVERSATION PIECE OR ADDITION TO NASCAR COLLECTION.THE TIRE HAS SMALL RUBBER MARBLES ON THE DRVING SURFACE AND WHAT APPEARS TO A CUT WHERE THE SIDEWALL MEETS THE TREAD , MARKED WITH SHARPIE (SEE PHOTO) OR RACING SURFACE. THE TIRE HAS THE LOOK THAT IT WAS CLEARLY USED. HISTORY OF THIS TIRE: I acquired this tire in 1999, long before Dale Sr. I have had this in my NASCAR room since then. Remodeling the race room forces me to now sell the tire as well as entire race collection.
The tire was acquired by Patton's Air Compressors Inc. Was signed by the V. Of Sales and Marketing on June 10th, 1999. Of note is that Patton's Air Compressors (a huge company) has an Automotive and Collison division.
Patton's main office is located In Virginia and operates throughout the southern sates and CA. A fair offer is what I want.
