Is This the Closest We’ll Get to a Major League Charlie Sheen Autograph Card?

As the first boxes of 2011 Leaf Legends of Sport start to hit, a curious autograph has emerged: a Charlie Sheen autograph featuring him in a trademark-friendly Cleveland Indians uniform, complete with thick-rimmed glasses.

The artistic interpretation may not have the Indians' logos, but that's likely close enough for many fans of the classic baseball movie, Major League. Image In the comedy, Sheen plays Ricky Vaughn, better known as "Wild Thing."

The first copy of the card to surface on eBay is numbered to just 10 copies, although it is likely there are additional parallels.

This isn't the only movie-themed card featuring a Charlie Sheen autograph in the set either. There's also a card showing him as Oscar 'Hap' Felsch from Eight Men Out Image, a drama based on the 1919 Chicago Black Sox Scandal. So far, two versions of the card have shown up: one numbered to 10 and another to 5.

Collectors looking for a Charlie Sheen autograph can find them in other products too. The outspoken actor has been in several sets, including 2004 Playoff Honors Fans of the Game, 2011 Leaf Pop Century and 2011 Topps American Pie.

2011 Leaf Legends of Sport is an all-autograph set featuring athletes and legends from all major sports. Boxes come with three cards and are currently selling for about $160-170.
