Jeff Gordon collectibles are a token of the tremendous support Gordon receives from his devoted fans. Jeff has put his whole life into racing, and now he is exceptionally successful at a very young age. Racing fans recognize the bright colors of his famous #24 DuPont Chevrolet as it roars through the field.

Gordon started early. He won three sprint car track championships before he was old enough to get a drivers license and won the USAC Midget championship in 1990, at age 19 becoming the youngest champion ever in that class. The next year he jumped to the Silver Crown class and at age 20 he became the youngest driver to win that championship. That same breakthrough year he moved up to Busch Grand National competition where he won rookie of the year honors.

Racing Success Creates Jeff Gordon Collectibles

In 1992, Jeff Gordon signed with the powerful Hendrick motorsports team to drive in the NASCAR Winston Cup series. He won Rookie of the Year honors in 1993 after a 14th place finish in the points standings and set his sights higher for the year to come. He won the Coca-Cola 600 and the inaugural Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis in 1994, finishing eighth in the points standings. 1995 was a dream season that led to Gordon's first Winston Cup title. He would go on to win titles in 1997, 1998, and 2001, earning Jeff Gordon collectibles a place in the hearts of many fans.

Jeff Gordon collectibles take on almost every imaginable shape and size, from die cast model cars to beer mugs to framed artwork to teddy bears. There are so many Gordon-related collectibles that I couldn't begin to list them all in this article. My favorites are die cast scale replicas of Gordon's DuPont Chevys.
