Any of what/who? There are Long certified autograph football cards, if you mean him. I couldn't find Uecker on a certified baseball card, which seems weird because he did sign them in-person and there are plenty of his autographed baseballs out there.

I was thinking about cameo appearances on TV and shows like Seinfeld often had a sports star playing themselves. Just from Steinfeld there were cameos by Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Danny Tartabull and Paul O'Neill. Keith Hernandez had a big part in a couple of episodes that are very funny and well known.

If you counted speaking appearances on TV shows, you would greatly expand the list of sports stars with certified autograph cards that had some part in non-sport entertainment.

He did try to break into the movies and actually starred in Firestorm, which I can remember seeing. He also had a bigger role in Broken Arrow, which I also saw. He was no worse than any of the other sports stars turned actors, but maybe he liked the broadcast booth better.


3000 Miles to Graceland is where I remember him from. Of course many of these players didn't have acting careers that were considered to be extensive.
