If you’re a fan of A League of Their Own or a collector of baseball movie memorabilia, you may need to head to a Walmart.
That’s where you can find a recently released exclusive 25th anniversary Blu-ray/DVD package of the popular Penny Marshall film and it includes baseball cards as well as other extras.
A card show begins in Los Angeles tonight and lasts all the way until March 26 — and you have a shot at owning any and all of the superstars in attendance as long as you’re there early enough.
The difference? It’s at an art gallery — at Gallery 1988 (East) — and the cards are prints from California illustrator Cuyler Smith, whose focus is the biggest names in the sports world … err, the sports movie world.
Buzz caught up with Smith before his show, “Trading Cards,” opens with a reception tonight at 7 p.m.
Q: How did you happen to focus on cards and card-size art?
A: It all started when I made a card for a group show at Gallery 1988 focusing on the films of Tom Hanks. I knew I wanted to do something different and the baseball card was a perfect fit for A League of Their Own.
California illustrator Cuyler Smith has a “card show” coming in March — and it’s likely to include some of the biggest names in the sports world.
Well, at least the world found in sports movies.
Even cooler? Some of his prints are found in card size and come in top-loaders — at least while they last.
