You might have to remind me next year, but I'm trying to start a tradition of watching The Goonies every St. Patrick's Day. Because why not. I sort of "live tweeted" this tonight, but let's get a blog post out of it, too.
Truffle Shuffle with a wallet card appearance.
I don't have a good reason for watching this on 3/17, but it's a very green movie in parts, for what that's worth.
The old Lou Gehrig card they find is 1973 Topps #472. In that condition, it'd probably be under a buck on COMC. But we get what they were going for. The prop master should have gone with a Goudey.
I didn't even notice it till this most recent viewing. But yeah, between being featured in both one of my favorite movies and my favorite TV show (The Simpsons "muttonchop Yaz"), it's no surprise 1973 Topps is my all-time favorite set.
Such an all-time crush on Kerri Lee Green in that movie. Included her in my "Pretty Girls" custom set a couple years back.
We visited the actual Goonies house in Astoria, Oregon back in 2013, the day I proposed. Good times!
My favorite display piece in my card collection is this Goonies picture adorned with 4 certified autos. I haven't been able to add any more Goonies autos in the years since putting this together, but maybe someday.
Not sure if it counts, but I've added a handful of Andre the Giant cards to my collection, at least. Here he is at the end of the classic "Goonies R Good Enough" music video (Part 2 of it, specifically).
Anyways. Great movie. Thanks for reading.
