Call this one a surprise.
A limited number of autographs from actor John Cusack can be found in packs of 2017 Panini Diamond Kings, which arrived this week from Panini America.
Just 95 total autographed cards were made — and the rarest one of them all has hit eBay.
It carries a modest price of $499.99 — which might be low for a Cubs fan known around the world. It’s the 1/1 Masterpiece parallel of Cusack’s DK Signatures card and it includes two patch pieces from what appears to be a Cubs jersey likely worn by him. (The photo from the auction isn’t great — but it’s all we have for now to go on.)
The other four versions aren’t easy pulls. The regular card is limited to 49 copies, while there are Silver (/25), Gold (/15) and Blue (/5) versions also to be found in packs.
These aren’t his first autographs as he previously had signed cards in Donruss/Playoff‘s Americana releases in 2008 and 2009. Some of his notable past credits include High Fidelity, Eight Men Out, Being John Malkovich, Hot Tub Time Machine, Sixteen Candles and Say Anything.
