    Indy hero card pics

    I was asked through the various sites to show a few of the handouts/hero cards that I got signed at the Indy autograph session. So here I go...

    First, eight drivers did not have hero cards made for them for them at that time. They used a generic Izod Indy autograph card for their autographs. I wasn't too crazy about the signing area, especially for Tracy and Davey Hamilton, but I loved the warning label on the card.



    Top row: Ana Beatriz, Ho-Pin Tung
    Bottom Row: Paul Tracy, Scott Speed

    While most of the hero cards were either 8x10 or 8.5x11, the Penske and Ganassi handouts stand out like they do on the track. First, the Penske cards...



    Top: Ryan Briscoe opened (he signed the card on the front)
    Bottom: Will Power, Helio Castroneves

    As you can see they were a booklet form, I have not seen any like this in recent memory. This bio and recent career highlights were on the back of the card. They would be the best cards there if it wasn't for the Target guys...



    Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti

    These cards were very thick, almost like cardboard. And if they didn't already stand out in a crowd, there was metal tab to put a cherry of top of this sundae.

    And of course, Indy autographs would not be complete without Danica...rather basic 8x10s, but it's Danica.



    Top: Ryan Hunter-Reay, John Andretti

    Bottom: Marco Andretti, Mike Conway, Danica Patrick

    And this is the best one I like out of the rest...



    Jr Hillebrand Panther Racing 2011 card

    Thickest card not from Ganassi...only handout to have foil stamping...the first card I've seen that screams "Made for silver Sharpies!!!"

    Thanks for looking, Alex
