Lionel Racing, through its Racing Collectables Club of America, recently revealed its top-10 1:24-scale RCCA Elite diecasts for 2017, based on sales. Just over half of the top-10 (six) of those die casts were Dale Earnhardt Jr. diecasts. The 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season was Earnhardt’s last as a full-time driver in the series, and the diecast of his throwback paint scheme for the Nov. 19 season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway has been the highest-selling diecast of the year and the highest-selling diecast, all-time, for Lionel.

Here’s a look at the top-10, as reported by NBC Sports:
1. Dale Earnhardt Jr. — Axalta “Last Ride” No. 88 Chevrolet
2. Ryan Blaney — Motorcraft No. 21 Ford, Pocono race win
3. Dale Earnhardt Jr. — Nationwide No. 88 Chevrolet, Darlington throwback
4. Kurt Busch — Haas Automation No. 41 Ford, Daytona 500 win
