A lot of people have asked me why I send the 87 checklists to people, or that they don't see the correlation. The simple answer is that, if they were active doing anything in 1987, I tend to send one, and an even simpler answer is that I send them to folks when I have nothing else baseball card sized that I can send. I have had more luck getting folks to sign an 87 checklist, than I have with them signing dummy blanks, or even blank signature cards. Plus, I have so damn many of these, and they are just sitting in a pile on my desk; why not send some out and fill a few album pages with some glorious randomness?
Sheen (b. 1940) is an American actor known for roles in Apocalypse Now, Wall Street, The American President and The Departed, among many others. He won a Golden Globe for his work on the TV show, The West Wing. He has never been nominated for an Academy Award, which is really weird, since I could have sworn he had been nominated for The Departed and Apocalype Now.
He is the father of Charlie Sheen (ha!!), Emilio Estevez, Ramon Estevez and Renee Estevez; all are also actors. His brother, Joe Estevez, also is an actor, though he has appeared in mostly B and low budget movies.
I mailed to Sheen on September 5 and got the card back on September 17, for a 12-day TAT.
