"The Sandlot" (1993): A group of young baseball players is obsessed with collecting cards in this classic coming-of-age film. The cards even play a role in the plot when Scotty Smalls accidentally destroys one of his friends' valuable Babe Ruth cards when the boys trade and discuss their collections.

"Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" (1989): When a group of kids shrunk down to the size of insects, they must navigate their backyard's perils. Through the use of baseball cards, they communicate with the outside world by writing messages on them.

"The Mighty Ducks" (1992): This popular sports movie about a ragtag youth hockey team features a scene in which the main character, Gordon Bombay, trades hockey cards with a group of kids. The scene serves as a reminder of Bombay's own love of hockey as a child and helps to establish his connection to the sport.

"The Wedding Crashers" (2005): In this comedy, the character of Jeremy Grey, played by Vince Vaughn, is a passionate sports card collector. Throughout the movie, Grey can be seen trading and discussing his collection with other characters, and the cards even play a role in the plot when Grey uses them to bribe his way into a wedding.

Throughout the years, sports cards have played a variety of roles in movies, often serving as nostalgic and fun ways to connect with viewers. There is a place for sports cards in films, whether they are a major plot point or just a background detail.
