Dale Earnhardt Jr. searches eBay daily for vintage t-shirt with dad on it

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a busy man.

Though he retired from the NASCAR Cup Series last season, he’s now at the track every weekend broadcasting races with NBC Sports, he has his second-tier XFINITY Series team, JR Motorsports, he’s on his weekly podcast and he’s a new father.

But Junior still finds the time to search eBay, apparently on a daily basis. What’s he looking for? This vintage Dale Earnhardt Rookie of the Year t-shirt from 1979.

He doesn’t want a knockoff, he doesn’t want JR Nation to make him a new one and he doesn’t want one that’s not this but similar. He wants this specific 39-year-old relic.

And as he explained on Twitter, he already has one that fits his wife, Amy, but he’s looking for one in his own size, which is extra large in 1970s terms.

Dale Jr. has a lot of great old-school t-shirts, and we’re sure he won’t stop looking until he adds this one to his collection too.

Making my rounds this morning. #Daytona500
