... it was in 2000.

Grabbed this one from a FB seller. We agreed on a pretty fair price for it. The sleeve is as close to brand new as I've seen. Always very welcome when they arrive in this condition.

I expect many of you are aware but for those who aren't this is Earnhardt's lowest production number Elite from when he was alive.

Congrats on the add .. the Dale Sr. "Under the Lights" die-casts (Elite and ARC) have consistently maintained a substantially high market value over all other standard paint Dale Sr. die-cast for over two decades.

A testament considering 1,200 Elite and 2,304 ARC production quantities would be considered high with today's collector demographic and continual declining demand ...a rare exception of a continuing overall market trend.

I acquired mine (pictured below) privately from a collector who knew Dale Sr. personally twenty years ago. I have only seen one other Elite surface which was authentically signed by Dale Sr. in over two decades.

I acquired this ARC version off ebaY around 20 years ago as well. I have only seen a few other ARC versions which were Dale Sr. authentically signed surface over the years on ebaY.

The ARC version of this die-cast was only mass produced as a clear window bank. This is the only die-cast bank I have ever had in my collection.
