Force trading cards fueling collectors
Ashley Force Hood has been described as one of the hottest drivers in motorsports.
Card collectors can get a piece of the Force phenomenon in the 2009 Press Pass Legends cards set.
Two cards in particular are at the top of the Beckett Racing’s Hot List. The No. 1 card is of John Force, autographed and valued between $100 and $175. The No. 6 card is the Force family, signed by John, Ashley, Brittany and Courtney Force, and valued between $300 and $600.
“All racing collectors can appreciate the greatness of John Force and what he means to auto racing,” Tim Trout, editor of Beckett Racing. “With only a couple certified autograph cards to date, this is his best one since it could be found in packs of the very popular 2009 Press Pass Legends. Legends is a product dominated by NASCAR drivers, which speaks volumes about the popularity of John Force.”
Trout continued to say that the Force cards could gain as much popularity and value as the 2000 Maxxim Signatures card that features Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s autographs.
