Winning Car Photographer armbands probably date back at least into the *1940's-1950's. All shown are made of a silk/satin type material. We have no pictures of any winning car photographer armbands before 1981 and need to fill in the gaps of those years already shown here, so please email us (ni500cc@ni500cc.com or dar500@indy.rr.com) if you have any pictures so they can be posted here on the site.


1981, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989 and 1994.


Because of the fragile nature of silk/satin armbands, this type of armband may fray at the ends as seen in the photo above. However, as these were only used for one day and primarily in Victory Lane, those from the 1980's and up are usually found in very good condition as these are above. Those from earlier years will have the same fraying problem and will be harder to find the further one goes back. Probably no more than *25 to 30 of these were used from any given year which should be factored in when determining a value.
