Set: Winner's Choice New England (Rate)

Card: #12 Dave Dion


“ I'll assume this is a race car driver. Card looks fine, if that's what you're into. ” -switzr1

“ New England legend. The first set made for NASCAR's Northeast series, although the photo is from the unaffiliated American-Canadian Tour. I have been looking for this set for years, with no luck. It was factory set only, I think. Hopefully someday I will find it. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Interesting early 90s design. Nice use of checkered flag motif, but perhaps too much black surround on both front and back. Nice photo, and some diverse information on the back. I'm not a racing guy, but it's not a bad card. ” -kents_stuff

“ One would think you get a free loaf of bread with this card. ” -parsley24

“ Funny, I haven't looked at the 'Write One' link in weeks, maybe even months, and today I felt the urge to click on it, only to see one of my own scans! (Twilight Zone theme playing in the background...LOL!) Anyway, I really like the Winner's Choice products. Even major league racing cards had only been around for a few years at this point, and Winner's Choice was pretty close to its contemporaries on quality and design, in my opinion. It helps that this set was about local drivers here in the Northeast. I'd say that the biggest detraction from this set is the lack of quality photography of the subjects, but I think that is the nature of the subject matter as much as the budget of the production company. Dave Dion was a fixture on the NASCAR Busch North tour for many years, although this photograph shows him in a uniform bearing the logo of the short lived American-Canadian Tour. ” -Lea DeFoote

“ Not a racing fan, so I don't know this guy, but I generally prefer cards that show the players performing, not posing. ” -Sportzcommish

“ Should have been sponsored by the restaurant Checkers. ” -carthage44

“ No idea who this is or what set this is, but at least it's from a time when racing was racing! ” -IndyBean17

“ A Racing card how nice. Seems a bit bare on the backside No car photo. If I were a racing card collector this would be like something I'd expect from cards from a food product. Bare bones basic. ” -captkirk42

“ Kind of what I would imagine a driver card to look like. ” -muskie027
