There’s not much I share in common with veteran comic/actor and author, Steve Martin. What I can say is that for a good while, there was no one more talented and hilarious than Martin, who began working in the late 60’s.
Unfortunately, time can be rough on our favorites. I used to worship Marlon Brando until I began seeing the actor in his final days, morbidly obese and rambling to anyone who would listen.
I don’t know when the exact moment Steve Martin became “uncool” but it might coincide with 1999’s Bowfinger. Since then, he’s starred in movies with both Hilary Duff and Queen Latifah.
As for the card below, it comes from Inkworks’ Looney Tunes Back In Action set and once again reminds us why when it came to non-sports autographs, Inkworks was a truly amazing company.
The last two copies of this card sold for just over $30 dollars on eBay.
