Got one! I'd been keeping an eye out for an Ed O'Neill as Al Bundy football card for a few years now. Leaf recently put out a few in the old 1989 Pro Set design. I thought it looked pretty cool, and ponied up for one.
Mine is #'d 42/99 (ooh, the Jackie Robinson eBay 1/1!) It's easily the most I've ever paid for a stickergraph-- I'm one of those guys who vastly prefers on-card signatures-- but in this instance, I'll let it slide.
I loved Married... with Children as a kid/teen back in the day and have recently been watching through the series again via Hulu with my wife. The whole running gag about Al Bundy being a former high school football star (including 4 touchdowns in one game!) is pretty great, and this card is right up my alley as someone who enjoys making customs along these lines. (See also my Perfect Strangers customs from a few years back.)
Ed O'Neill is known more recently for his role of Jay Pritchett on Modern Family, another show I like. This is the second auto card I've scored from the cast of that show, joining the Sarah Hyland ("Haley Dunphy") I picked up a year ago. Now I'm kinda curious who else from that show has certified autograph cards out there to track down.. but honestly I'm more likely to turn my focus on finding a Christina Applegate auto for a decent price.
Thanks for stopping by.
