1998 Jeff Gordon NASCAR Winston Cup Championship Trophy....
Presented is the third of four Winston Cup trophies earned by the driver of the number "24" Chevy whose domination of the competition in the late 1990's made him one of the most popular race car drivers in American history. The trophy was consigned to Heritage by a Houston, TX resident who reported that he had acquired the massive award from Gordon's first wife after the 2003 dissolution of their marriage.
The trophy came to Heritage in several pieces but has been reconstructed using only original parts with the exception of various bolts and screws. It must be noted that the wooden pedestals upon which the two smaller cups rest have been lost, but this does very little to diminish the considerable visual appeal, and the trophy is otherwise complete. The design is anchored by the bold engraved proclamation, "1998 NASCAR Winston Cup Champion, Jeff Gordon" that commands the base. Just above, an image of Gordon, his facsimile signature, the number "24" and "Hendrick Motorsports" appears on a second brass plaque. The logo of the "NASCAR Winston Cup Series" is just above.
The trophy measures 10x23x32" at its largest dimensions, providing ample heft to match its historical import. As the ultimate prize for one of America's most recognizable sporting figures, this trophy should draw no shortage of bidding attention. Gentlemen, start your engines!
