I think I need to do an S&T Thread again......
I will give Panini a bit of props here. They've done cards of more than just the Hansons.
Ned Braden (well, Michael Ontkean) had a 'Fans of the Game' insert / autograph in 2010-11 Donruss.
Connie Madiagan, played Ross "Mad Dog" Madison (Bulldogs, championship game - guy who gave the finger to the crowd as he was introduced) also played a few games for the St. Louis Blues back in the 70s. Panini made an auto'd rookie card of him in 2011-12 Certified.
Bruce Budreau was an extra in the film. He played for the Johnstown Jets at the time.... and like most the players, he got a bit part (no lines). I *THINK* it was as a member of the Hyanisport Presidents, but not 100% sure on that. He had an auto in Zenith as a coach.
Finally, Paul Newman had a cut signature in 2010-11 Dominion. Does have a small head shot from the movie in the top corner... mentions both Paul Newman & "Reggie Dunlop" on the card, and refers to him as player / coach. It's a 1/1, and I can tell you for an absolute fact that its not available ;)
Having said all that, I would LOVE to see someone make an insert set (or subset) that includes the entire cast. You could probably do 50 cards. Make base and auto'd versions.
I would imagine though - you'd have to deal with whomever owns the movie rights.... to be able to use actual stills from the film in making the cards / federal league logos. You'd also have to reach an agreement with the players to use their image (and certainly their autograph). Their imagine in the movie might be something that the studio owns.... and could allow for use on its own... I don't know..... but I can't imagine that Denis Lemieux, Nick Brophy, Tim McKracken, or Walt would be opposed to making the cards, or signing them.
For guys like Newman, Strother Martin, and Moe (I can't remember the actor's name that played Moe in the movie) autos wouldn't be an option.... other than cuts. That shouldn't stop them from making a set like this though.
Heck, the more I think about it..... if someone were to do a "box" set type thing, I'd be all over it too. Thinking along the style of ITG's Tough Customer's a while back.... or when they did BTP as a box set.
