I remember that "Planet of the Apes" TV series. When I was a kid, I didn't understand why Roddy McDowall was playing a different ape. I liked the show but it wasn't on long.

I remember Ron Harper becoming a regular on the last season of "Land of the Lost."

Chris Mortensen was an "NFL Insider." He had contacts all over the league. Years ago, I used to watch ESPN's Sunday morning pre-game show back when Chris Berman hosted and as long ago as when Pete Axthelm provided the Vegas angle after he left NBC. Chris was great. He died too soon.

A key member of SCTV, which is surely on the Mount Rushmore of sketch comedy troupes.

Here's Joe shown as the white-suited Guy Caballero, the shady owner of the TV station-within-the-show (in the cast photo), and with John Candy for Celebrity Blowup, which featured some of the show's more inspired lunacy, and a chance for the other members to show off their celebrity impressions. Woo-wee!



Rest in peace, Joe Flaherty.

@chesspieceface, what set are those cards from? (I've long thought there should be an SCTV set.)

RIP Count Floyd.

It's an 8-card set that was given out at the 2005 SDCC (San Diego Comic Con). I think you can find it as an insert with one of the DVD compilations too.

Yes, mine are from the Shout Factory booth at SDCC, but they may have also been included in one of the earlier SCTV box sets (Volume 1, most likely). There is also a second SCTV promo set featuring different cards issued in specially-stickered (perhaps all?) copies of the final box set, SCTV Volume 4.
I don't think that second set (referred to as "character cards" on the sticker) were ever handed out separately, and are seldom seen today as a result. There were 8 cards in two uncut, perforated 4 card sheets.
Here's the one with Joe's card:

Geez, I can still remember watching that damn slow speed chase on TV and then the trial on 24/7. Simpson had it all at one time. Now he'll be on TV again.

Speaking of all those football cards and autographs, the vintage stuff dropped like a rock off of their highs prior to the murders. There remained a small market at the reduced prices, and he has been signing new stuff for sale all along, but he wasn't someone that kept any big supporters even right after acquittal.

Here is one of them -- the only card I have signed by an (alledged, wink wink) murderer.

There was a 50-card set about the trial, "In Pursuit of Justice (Interlink News Service, 1994) and a 10-card promo set for it. You could get the promo set for $5 (or less if you looked for it) and you can still get it for that.

Recently, I read that writer, John Nichols, passed away on November 27, 2023. He authored both fiction and nonfiction. Three of his novels were made into movies. Perhaps the most famous was "The Milagro Beanfield War."

If you tell people these days that Betts wrote "Ramblin' Man" and "Jessica," they might recognize "Ramblin' Man" but not "Jessica," his most famous instrumental. You would just need to hear a few seconds of it before commenting, "Oh yeah, that song." It was one of a few instrumentals I used to hear on "easy rock" stations into the 90's (before they started sticking to "the top 500 songs" - or whatever the number is now of the 70's and 80's, focusing more on the latter in recent years).

Anyway, it was sad to hear. Just one original "Allman Brothers" band member left.

I think Jessica is the theme tune to Top Gear (UK).

Rest in Peace to Terry Carter who has passed away at the age of 95. He played Col. Tigh on the original "Battlestar Galactica". He's got some nicer looking cards, including autographs, in the more recent Rittenhouse BSG sets, but here's one from the old Topps set.
