Where Are The Super Bowl Commercial Cards?

With more and more pop culture figures showing up in products, there is one subject area that surprisingly hasn’t been touched very much.  I’m talking about individuals that have been at the center of those popular Super Bowl commercials.  I’m surprised that no manufacturer has taken advantage of this yet.  With all the people, places, and things put on trading cards today it would make perfect sense for someone to go through with it.

Just off the top of my head I could see autographs of guys like Fred Thomas, Paul Williams, Terry Williams, and Scott Martin Brooks of the “Wassup?” commercials.

Apple’s 1984 ad is always on people’s list of top Super Bowl commercials.  The woman throwing the sledge hammer is Anya Major and the guy playing “Big Brother” is David Graham.  Both are actors from England.

The #1 Super Bowl commercial for years has been the classic Coke commercial featuring “Mean” Joe Greene and child actor Tommy Okon.  I could definitely see a dual autograph made here.

Super Bowl commercials are a huge deal.  People who don’t even watch football end up watching the Super Bowl just so they can see the commercials.  This year it costs $3.5 million for a 30-second commercial spot.  Cards like this would make interesting inserts for products such as Allen & Ginter, American Pie, or even Americana.  The list goes on and on of who you could include.  Would they be gimmicky?  Absolutely 🙂  They sure would bring back memories and that’s what cards should do.  Lets see if anyone takes my advice like they did when I suggested pin cards.

I LOVE YOU MAN!
