While the 2009 Wheels Main Event NASCAR set is still a few weeks away from its green flag, Press Pass offered up a new glimpse on Wednesday at some of the autographs that will be found in the poker-themed product.

MEAutos2There are four different levels of autograph cards for Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart (as well as other drivers) as seen here. The club, diamond (limited to 10 or 50), heart (numbered to 5 or 10) and spade cards, which are 1/1s.

Each hobby box will include one autograph and two memorabilia cards while some hobby boxes will also include a professional poker player autograph or a race-used spark plug pulled from the engine of a top Sprint Cup driver.
