Trading Cards seen in movies/on TV


Recommended Posts

I can't find a screenshot... in the movie "A League Of Their Own," there's a scene where one of the woman ballplayers brings a card to the Tom Hanks character hoping to get it signed, but he rips it up in a drunken stupor. Since I was a very avid card collector at the time, I could tell the card she used was a modern one. Either a Fleer or Upper Deck card of the early '90s.

 

Yeah, maybe it's nitpicky, but the least they coulda done was come up with a decent ol' timey looking replica. :P

A League Of Their Own

THANK YOU !!! I forgot about that- somehow :( ... I'll dig up a capture when I get home from work in the morning ;)

 

Another one I am seeking is a 1972 episode of The Partridge Family where Danny is holding a Sandy Koufax card...

Also the '80s movie "Mask" about the deformed kid who's a genius or something. On his wall he had the complete something-year starting lineup of the Dodgers on a poster of a baseball diamond, or something. Er, I might be mixing up some movies here.

 

I only remember it because I tried to do something like that with the Braves.

Were there any "card moments" in The Sandlot? Or just the baseball signed by some lady?

Didn't "The Jet" have a card or was it just the baseball game?
