ESPN Hustle Movie Promo Card from 2004

I saw this promo on Ebay and now that I have it in hand, I thought that I would share the information about it.

ESPN released the movie "Hustle" in 2004 starring Tom Sizemore as Pete Rose. The seller says there were only 500 made. First one I have seen and I have collected Pete Rose cards for many years now.

Some of you might say this is not a non-sports promo card, but it is. It is a movie, which yes, is about a Baseball Player, and the game itself.

If you spot another one, please let me know. I've got a mini collection of "baseball cards" from movies and shows. I didn't know this one existed, although the movie was pretty bad.

Ryan,

I certainly will. I figured it was probably a bad movie. I had not seen it.

Off the top of my head, I can think of a few Baseball related movies:

Eight Men Out
Mr 3000
A couple of Kevin Cosner movies have cards. Bull Durham has both standard and over sized cards.
Cannot remember the title, but a movie with Dennis Quaid in it has a small promo set too.

I'm sure there are many more....

Mike.

I think you are right. Too lazy to look for the cards to check! Smile

Thanks.

Mike.

There's two for Bull Durham. The first is the over-sized made by Gatorade - even comes with a packet. The second, may technically be a baseball card. It was made by Star.

Others:

The Natural - a blank back Hobbs like one shown in the movie. A set came with the deluxe DVD a few years back.

Eastbound and Down - HBO sent out Kenny Powers promo packs when the show's first season was on. Great set based on different Topps/Bowman designs.

Remembered another (this one's definitely a baseball card and not a promo). 1991 Upper Deck Hi Numbers had a Mr. Baseball card with Frank Thomas and Tom Selleck.
