Default Have you ever seen sports props in the background of a movie?

When I got home from Brimfield MA last May I rented Love Story to see the shots of the Harvard campus I had visited on my trip...Towards the end of the movie Ryan O'Neal's character goes to see his father for money to pay his wife's medical expenses...My radar came on as he sits in his fathers office waiting for him...I spotted a c1890 coxed pair rowing bronze sitting on the desk...Phew, would I like to run into one of those at an antiques show!...you can see more photos of the office scene in a feature I hoisted up on my home page SportsAntiques.com...Has anyone else ever seen a sports relic in the background of a movie?

My new favorite HBO Sunday night show "Boardwalk Empire". Nookies new lawyer has a Ty Cobb signed ball on his desk, and later in the episode a drawer full to give to the kiddies!

In the movie, "Brighton Beach Memoirs," there is wonderful advertising piece depicting Sunny Jim Bottomley on the bedroom wall of the main character, Eugene. There's also a nice vintage photo of Dizzy Dean ...

I sold a picture of Lefty Grove to a girl in Hollywood to be used on the set of "Money Ball". The photo was supposed to be in the office of the Athletics Owner. Unfortunately, I didn't see the picture when I watched the movie a few weeks ago.

In the first 5 minutes of A Christmas Story, when they show Ralphies bed, you can very quickly see a couple of baseball cards (one is a T206) glued to the back headboard.

You can see quite a few items in "The Sandlot". James Earl Jones has them scattered throughout his house. They are shown towards the end of the movie.

Also in the movie "Good Will Hunting", Robin Williams has about 20 baseball cards on a board behind his desk.

In the original Rocky, during the scene in which the “Italian Stallion” takes Adrian ice skating on their first date, he pulls a news clipping/photo from his wallet to prove to her that he's a professional fighter. The photo is actually a real Associated Press wirephoto taken Nov. 12, 1968, showing Canadian heavyweight champion George Chuvalo knocking another fighter through the ropes at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto. Rocky points to Chuvalo and says something like, “See, that's me right there!” What makes it particularly ironic is that the real-life opponent Chuvalo is pummelling is Italian champion Dante Cane. I have a Type 1 version of that photo, along with a program and handbill from the fight, in my collection.

Default Fatima Team Card Premium

I remember watching the 2003 made for TV movie "And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself" with Antonio Banderas. There is a scene that takes place in a NY restaurant and on the wall is a framed T200 Fatima Team Premium Jumbo Photo. Can't remember the team but it appeared to be a reproduction.
