Abe Vigoda had very few roles when it came to trading cards

vigodaActor Abe Vigoda had many roles in his acting career, but for people of a certain age his roles in Barney Miller and The Godfather might come to mind first.

Sal Tassio and Detective Fish were the most-memorable for the veteran actor during a career that spanned from the 1940s into the 2000s — nearly 100 credits. He died on Tuesday at age 94.

His roles on cardboard? They were much more limited.

Vigoda has fewer than 20 card appearances and all but one of those are from the 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter baseball set, where he was among the pop culture inclusions on a checklist that often features sports other than baseball — and just about everything else, too.

His standard autograph and a Red are the only certified autos for him other than a single 1/1 cut from In The Game‘s tribute set to 1972, which is when he appeared in The Godfather.
