The plot of the new movie, "Cop Out", starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan, involves a baseball card that the Willis character had planned to sell to pay for his daughter's wedding. Interesting plot device.

Cool they went with a card that most outsiders won't know about. It would have been obvious for them to go with the '52 Mantle or T-206 Wagner.

That's a good point! I wonder if there will be a slight flux in the price of 52 Pafkos now. I bet a bunch of people who aren't familiar with the hobby will check out that card now.
