As I Searched through Netflix, it got me thinking of movies based around baseball cards. The list of sports movies goes on and on, everything from baseball, football, hockey, etc, etc……… But when it comes to making that list of cardboard on the big screen, Hollywood just doesn’t see it I guess. I found the following two movies Diminished Capacity, Where a Chicago newspaper editor suffers a concussion that takes him from the political pages to comic strip detail. He travels home to rural Missouri where his aging Uncle Rollie is on the verge of losing his home and has memory problems of his own, but selling his rare expensive card could solve his money problems.

The other movie I found was Cop Out. A movie about two New York cops on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card which leads them to a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster.

There’s got to be more cardboard love on the big screen, right? Drop us a comment if you know of any other sport card movies.

Over the past decade and a half, Buker has become quite savvy in capturing some of the top names auto’s. Sean Duncan from the Times-Mail in Bedford, Indiana has more on Buker and his collection, click here.
