Not quite a movie or a real signed ball, but there was the great recent commercial with an appearance of a Honus Wagner signed ball in an Audi commercial....

In Rain Man, Dustin Hoffman has a lot of baseball cards on the wall of his room. Someone mentioned The Sandlot before -- I remember that James Earl Jones had those 1960s HOF busts in his house.

Default Spike Lee's Crooklyn

In Spike Lee's movie Crooklyn, there are a couple scenes where Strat-O-Matic baseball is being played. Not surprising because Spike has been a big Strat-O-Matic player since childhood.

A gem mint '52 Topps Pafko was pretty much the entire plot of "Cop Out".

In the 1944 classic "Laura," Dana Andrews' "Detective Mark McPherson" character spends a lot of time
jiggling the Baseball dexterity game by Colmor...


Noting that the game was produced with several subtle variations to the playing surface graphics
and to the metal frame, here's a close-up from the movie:


There's a WWI-era silent comedy that features another tabletop baseball game, but we'll have to
dig deeper into our notes to find the details...

In a more modern setting, the office of the FBI agent character "Booth" in the TV series "Bones"
is festooned with hockey memorabilia, most prominently a framed photo of Bobby Orr's famous
"flying" goal that finished the 1970 Stanley Cup Final...

Not really vintage, but in the movie Grand Canyon, Kevin Kline's son is named Roberto after Roberto Clemente, and Kevin Kline has a late 1980's Sports Impression statue of Clemente on his work desk.

Default cards in movies

I had a BB card store in Los Angeles in the 80s. Art Department people came in and bought a lot of Football photos to be used somewhere in JR Ewings house...probably a den... as background. Also I think we sold some cards that were used in a 1980's Robert Wagner "Hart to Hart" episode about a rare $250,000 BB card collection. The show pictured some very current cards.

Max of Valley BB sold some to them as well. I think we/ or Max sold some stuff to be used in Dustin Hoffman's room near the beginning of "Rainman" too. Its been a long time so memory is fading.

What I do remember VERY CLEARLY is that after the "Hart to Hart" episode my phone rang off the hook with people who after seeing those common cards with the $250,000 price tag were convinced their shoebox of 1981 Fleer cards were worth millions. I was a VERY long and frustrating day.

Stephen Kings "Needful Things" has a Mantle rookie card in it I remember. In "The Natural" at the beginning they show the inside of Roy Hobbs' bedroom and he has a lot of pennants and a baseball lamp I think.

In Bells of St Mary's Bing Crosby goes into a sporting goods store and you see a wall of boxed baseball gloves

This was actually just mentioned in the post-war forum...In "Needful Things" the movie, it was a signed '56 Mantle. In the book, it's a signed '56 Koufax..
