When 2013 Archives Football released last week, collectors found cards of players in old, popular designs and former players who are fan favorites.

But there are some quirks in 2013 Archives – one of which is the inclusion of cut autographs from celebrities popular in the 1980s.

Just a few of these have popped on eBay, but enough to give collectors an idea of what they can expect.

Bob Saget

Saget is a comedian most known for his role as the lovable, yet goofy dad on the sitcom Full House. The show ran from 1987 to 1995. Now, he does the voice over on How I Met Your Mother.

Gary Coleman

Coleman is best known for his childhood role of Arnold in Diff’rent Strokes. The show ran from 1978 to 1986. Coleman died in 2010 at 42 years old.

Christie Brinkley

Brinkley was one of the world’s most famous models in the 1980s, gracing the cover of three Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. She married (and later divorced) Billy Joel in 1985.

Danny DeVito

DeVito is still a successful actor, but he had a great run in the 1980s with the television show Taxi and then with movies such as Romancing the Stone, The Jewel of the Nile, Twins, Throw Momma from the Train and The War of the Roses.

    They don’t have to pay people for 1/1 unless its a spokesperson.
