Default Cards on TV / Movies

While watching Criminal Minds tonight, they showed a genuine 1963 Topps Nellie Fox card. Got me thinking of television shows or movies that displayed real or replica cards or memorabilia. For my money, Sandlot was the coolest with all those cards, autographs, pennants, and HOF busts. The Natural showed some uncut sheets of Roy Hobbs cards that eventually made their way into the hobby. What shows or movies come to mind that showed some of our beloved items?

That terrible Brendan Fraser movie "Blast From The Past" has a lot of cards in it. Fraser walks out of a sealed bomb shelter and starts selling his dad's baseball cards to make a living. Alicia Silverstone stops him from getting grifted on a 52 Mantle and some Goudeys.

If I'm correct, I believe Ralphie in "A Christmas Story" had some on the headboard of his bed

An episode of Hart to Hart focused on the theft of a suitcase full of 1950s cards.

An episode of MacGuyver dealt with a crooked card dealer.

The Pride of the Yankees had a scene where the young Lou Gehrig and his friends were comparing cards.

Default Stand By Me (1986)

One of my favorite movies.

In one scene, you can see a 1958 Topps All-Star Mantle as well as a 1960 Topps Berra pinned to the wall (although the movie takes place in September of '59).

In one Star Trex episode or Movie, I can't remember, an alien had a collection of ancient relics and one was a 62 Maris

Also in the Movie Memphis Belle, One of the crew members has some Playballs.
