C-List Celebrities Memorialized On Trading Cards

Former child/porn (but not child porn) star Scott Schwartz (A Christmas Story) has partnered with Upper Deck for one of the more bizarre cross-marketing ploys in recent memory: Trading cards commemorating faded TV and movie stars like Corey Feldman, Leif Garrett, Todd Bridges, and Anthony Michael Hall—and featuring the stars' personal autographs—will be randomly inserted into Upper Deck's Baseball Spectrum 2007 series (due this spring). According to this E!Online article:

The set serves both the collector, say, hot for Hall-of-Fame-bound Ripken memorabilia, and the collector, say, hot for a "May-o-nnaise!" rendering by Officer and a Gentleman Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr.

Scoff if you must, but apparently a card featuring David Faustino sold for $30 on eBay.
