Heaven Can Wait

On one of my many thrifting trips in search of dead media I came across the movie Heaven Can Wait.  I didn't own it nor had I ever seen it so I plunked down the .25 (probably) and became the proud owner of this VHS tape.

1978 Topps football
It took me awhile to get around to watching it.  I, like most VHS collectors I would assume, have hundreds of movies I've yet to watch.  It makes sense since they were the form of movie media for a couple of decades and can now can be picked up for as little as .10 if you catch a sale.  They can pile up fast ... in my basement.

The main character Joe Pendleton -played by Warren Beatty- is a backup quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams.  Sometimes I search for ideas for custom cards, and sometimes they come looking for me. As for the movie, it was a good story I would recommend checking it out.

Heaven Can Wait was released in 1978.  Luckily I had a 1978 Topps football inspired template ready to go thank to the Ron Simmons card I had already made. It was just a matter of finding a picture and matching the Rams colors and voilà.

Pick up a copy of this card here.
