I have been trying to obtain the above autograph for a couple of years, but could never find one that I considered to be reasonably priced. Well, at least not until earlier last year when I was able to get this one for (I think) around $14 shipped (I'm afraid to look, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if they could be had for less now). Previous copies that I had bid on always ended in the $25-30 range, so I was quite pleased to get this one for so much less; and what's more, there was nothing wrong with the card!
In a perfect world, I'd be able to get Fred's autograph on a card of him as Rick Hunter, but I don't see anyone putting out a Hunter set anytime soon, so I had to make due with this one. At least the signature was on-card.
I'd also really like to get a Stepfanie Kramer (Sgt. Dee Dee McCall😍) autograph to pair up with Fred's, but no official ones exist as of yet; and she doesn't appear to sign requests through the mail. I suppose at this point too, if she did ever actually sign some cards for a set, it would probably be for one of those atrocious Leaf Pop Century sets, which I absolutely loathe! Even for her, I don't think that I could bring myself to buy one of those monstrosities. But then again...
Wow, I have not thought about the TV show Hunter in forever! It was a great show! I wonder if it's streaming anywhere.ReplyDelete
My reply to your last pontification is always the same, I don't do streaming, so you'd probably have to look around on your own.Delete
Doesn't seem possible that there are actually people walking around who have no memories of 1984. I could fill 3 books with them. But I never watched one episode of Hunter.ReplyDelete
If I had the power to recall 5 years before I was born, oh, the things I could accomplish :)Delete
NO: And I have a hard time believing that there are people walking around who haven't seen Hunter :)Delete
Greg: It would be wonderful to have such an ability.
I kind of remember Hunter being one of those shows that was on TV when I was a kid but I never got to watch much (think it might have been on too late or something). I was more of a Simon and Simon or Magnum P.I. guy at the time, but was always kind of interested in Hunter. Cool card though!ReplyDelete
Magnum didn't do a lot for me as a kid, but I did like Simon and Simon quite a bit though.Delete
I remember the show well. Steph has got that Joan Collins thing workingReplyDelete
A. Nice call John. I totally see the similarity.Delete
B. And nice pick up Jon. I would be all over that Dryer autograph for that price.
I can see it a bit too.Delete
Great theme song too...congrats on the autograph!ReplyDelete
They definitely don't make television theme songs like they used to!Delete
I was a little too young for that show. Guess I should check it out.ReplyDelete
I don't know how well it'll hold up to modern eyes, but you could certainly still give it a go.Delete
I did not watch Hunter in the 1980s, also a little too young, but there was an independent television station in that St. Louis that showed old episodes in the middle of the day in the late 1990s and early 2000s. When I first started teaching, my co-teacher was an older women in her 60s, and she would watch all the shows on there during our workdays. It was way better than most of the cop shows from that era. I am surprised that a streaming service has not picked it up yet.ReplyDelete
Great find, hopefully someone will find a place for a Dee Dee McCall autograph on their checklist.
Even though many of them weren't that good, I have a strong affinity for cop shows from that era. Sounds like that woman had good taste in television!Delete
It would be nice, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.
