Posted By: <b>jeffdrum</b><p>I have always thought if they make the movie, "The Greg Maddux Story" he would be a dead ringer for the professor.<br /><br />Plus, the Schulte looks like a reprint to me.

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>odd that of all the cards that could have fallen out of somebody's attic, they chose a T206 Shulte; much more believable then the stories on ebay though.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>Wouldn't the movie have been more realistic if they used a real T206 Schulte instead of a repro? I realize most people don't know the difference, but the people who matter do.

Posted By: <b>Anthony S.</b><p>The movies called "Diminished Capacity."<br /><br />I'm not surprised that they used a reprint. Even though a few recognizable actors appear in it (Broderick, Alda, Dylan Baker, Virginia Madsen), my guess is they worked for scale on a very low budget. Indies are all about finding and saving money wherever you can. Someone probably explained to one of the producers that you can get the real card in that condition for about $1000. If at some point someone dings a corner (which will happen) then you have a $35 card and continuity problems (sharp corners in one scene, a bent corner in the next).<br /><br />I wrote an indie and when they were trying to get the money together, they found an investor who offered to contribute a substantial sum if his daughter, an actress, could play the sister of the main character. One problem. The movie is set in a small Georgia town, the main character is Caucasian (blonde, blue eyes) and the potential investor's daughter was of Chinese descent.

Posted By: <b>peter ullman</b><p>I think the movie looks great...but it is terribly lame they used a reprint. A real one would cost...what...$25? Times are tough...I guess even hollywood is cutting corners!

Posted By: <b>Jim Dale</b><p>Come on guys its a movie, its a prop in a movie, a real card in top grade would be a $1000 and could get damaged and leave them with little. If I were them I would have used a reprint too....

Posted By: <b>Kenneth A. Cohen</b><p>Borrowing from a previous thread, you know you're a card addict when it bugs you that they used a reprint.

Posted By: <b>howard</b><p>I heard that the Declaration of Independence in "National Treasure" was just a reprint. What a gyp!

Posted By: <b>MVSNYC</b><p>if i may jump in...<br /><br /><br />howard- yeah, but there is a difference between an unattainable item (decleration of independence) and an item that could be had for anywhere between $50-500 for a clean example.<br /><br />looks like a "cute" movie, but it does also erk me that they are using a reprint...<br /><br /><br /><br />"God is in the details"<br /><br />-ludwig mies van der rohe (famous architect)

Posted By: <b>john/z28jd</b><p> I think it would've been better if they used a Hobe Ferris t206 instead

Posted By: <b>Brian Collie</b><p>Isn't it cool enough that they're making a movie about baseball cards. Guess what, there are lots of things that are fake in movies ... bullets aren't real, your favorite actress uses a stunt ass, etc.

Posted By: <b>Ted Sherman</b><p>looks great and LOVE the RIP pn Mr Mint! The rp bothered me but I loved the other cards in the trailer. Of all card why Shulte, I guess the Wagner is already played out..but they still used a t206 <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Jodi Birkholm</b><p>Did Alda mispronounce Schulte's surname? I didn't think the "e" was supposed to be pronounced.

Posted By: <b>Erick Lewin</b><p>The movie looks interesting, reprint is annoying. My question is how much do they say the card's worth in the movie i wonder? They act like it's a $100,000 card that they found?<br /><br />Also it looks like they're taking a shot at Mr. Mint and Catequet with that one character....i like it!<br /><br />Someone needs to post a pic of them, i remember seeing a good one of catequet a while ago.

Posted By: <b>Bob</b><p>It's called "suspension of disbelief." Sure I noticed that Schulte was a reprint but who cares? Anything about cards is great <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br />(Besides Virginia Madsen is the bomb)
