Crash It

With the release of 2016 Topps Archives we are seeing the Bull Durham inserts hitting eBay. One thing that you will notice is that the 7-card base checklist does not include Susan Sarandon’s Annie or Kevin Costner’s Crash Davis. The only way to get Annie or Crash is to pick up the autographed versions and you can expect to pay close to $700 or more in that case.

But don’t be disappointed because you can get your Crash Davis fill elsewhere for a reasonable price. In 1988 Star included Kevin Costner in their Durham Bulls minor league release, actually there are different versions depending on which Star set you get, there was Blue, Orange, Blue/Orange and Gold versions. I picked up this blue version, I think the blue design matches better with the uniform, for a couple of bucks.

Other options include a 1988 Gatorade 4-card set, about $8-10 for the complete set, and Leaf included two Kevin Costner autographs (One as Crash Davis and one as Ray Kinsella from Field of Dreams) in their Leaf Trinity set last year with those running about $115 and up.


  1. Thanks for the heads up. I would love to get one of those STAR Crash Davis cards!

  2. I think I like that Star alternative just as much, if not better than the Archives version. Good call!
