Baseball card cameo: “Stand by Me”
Baseball card appearances in movies always intrigue me. So it came as a surprise to me today when I discovered that the 1986 flick “Stand by Me,” which I’d watched before but not in many years, actually shows for a brief second a 1958 Topps All Star Mickey Mantle and a 1960 Topps Yogi Berra. It’s probably worth noting that the Berra shouldn’t be there. The movie is set in 1959. Hurray for bloopers!
