About NASCAR Diecast Collectibles
NASCAR Diecast collecting is a great way for
fans to get deeper into the sport they love. As new paint schemes race each week
on the track, there's a great chance these unique cars will become a
collectable diecast in today's market. It is sure to be of
limited production, which only adds to the excitement of collecting. The
popularity of NASCAR creates a great demand for these replicas, so the
most successful collectors are also the most active collectors.
Brickel's Racing Collectibles started as a retailer for
collectors in the earliest days of these collectibles, and to this day are
generally known through the market as a premiere destination for the newest
and largest collection of just announced diecast and auto racing
collectibles! We make keeping up
with your favorite driver's cars a snap. Just check this page often,
as we update several times a day.
The most common sizes are 1:64
scale and 1:24 scale. These replicas get as close as they can to the
original cars balancing an affordable price point. The most popular
manufacturer is Lionel NASCAR Collectables (formerly called Motorsports Authentics), though
there is a new diecast developer this year called Checkered Flag Sports. Take a look at some of
the cars by clicking a NASCAR
driver on the left - you should be able to see the level of detail in the
paint schemes, and when applicable, in the chassis and engine. Some
NASCAR diecast replicas have hoods that open (HO), some
have both opening hoods and trunks (HOTO), and some don't have any opening
parts at all (typically the smaller 1:64 scale diecast). The price of
these cars depend on the size and detail you'd like to collect.
a NASCAR Diecast Scale
Many people collect the larger 1:24 scale NASCAR diecast
cars because of the level of detail. These are beautiful pieces for sure. The up-side is that these are easily the most impressive, and more collectible of the group.
They are great to show off,
too. But for others,
the size is too much.
For these collectors, 1:64
is the ideal scale because
you can easily fit more in a
display case or on a shelf.
For some, 1:64 is a better
option because of the price,
especially if a collector
has a few favorite drivers
with a lot of different
paint schemes through the
years. If you're a
bargain hunter, and shop for
cheap NASCAR diecast, the
1:64 scale is often a great
option for you - it balances
detail and scale perfectly.
