Since When Were Football Cards Used to Sell Liquor?

I was just browsing eBay and saw the following:

The card is from 2008 Upper Deck Icons Football and features none other than Lando Calrissian, Billy Dee Williams. Check out the inscription on the card, "Drink Colt 45 Malt Liquor!" Wow! I know inscriptions are being used to jazz things up a bit, but promoting heavy beverages?

I'm actually wondering if this was signed through the mail or at a show after the fact. I guess I could email the seller and check. Either way, is such an inscription a sign that maybe Lando has been living in Cloud City a little too long?
