As many of you already know, there is a baseball card-related movie (starring Matthew Broderick, unfortunately) coming out soon. In the movie, a man sells a valuable baseball card to a greedy dealer who might or might not have been inspired by “Mr. Mint” Alan Rosen.
According to Tuff Stuff Magazine, Mr. Mint is NOT happy with the portrayal in the movie but after contacting his lawyer about a possible lawsuit, the lawyer responded with, “you have no case”.
So has anyone ever dealt with Mr. Mint? Stories around the Internet have varied from “great guy who paid 150% of book value” to “scumbag that yelled at an old man eating ice cream in front of his booth at a card show”. Personally, the last time I went to a card show I paid $12 for this new, extremely hot card at the time…so as you can imagine, it’s been a while.
For anyone who hasn’t seen the trailer for ‘Diminished Capacity’, the new baseball card-related movie, here you go, hosted on Wax Heaven’s YouTube channel.
