Funny Baseball Card

Notice anything strange about Derek Jeter’s newest Topps baseball card?

Derek Jeter Baseball Card with George Bush and Mickey Mantle

Wait, is that George W. Bush waving to Mr. November as he takes a swing? Who knew that secret service would allow the president to sit in the regular box seats? And who’s that in the dugout? Did the Great Mickey Mantle decided to make a return to the living to catch a Yankees game? Talk about pressure!

Apparently somewhere between the final proofing and printing the cards, someone at the company thought it would be funny to put in Bush and Mantle. It was too late for Topps to change the card, so they just laughed and included the card in the set.

I’d love to get one of these, seems like it would make a great collector’s card one day.

    Sure thing I believe you, but Bush looks somehow as if it is not he :) illusion

    True or not. I like that the people at Topps just sit around smoking tree and MS Paint editing their proudly historic product. Baseball card collecting is like using coal to heat your home or like using condoms, its just archaic and I doubt anyone still does it.

    OK, maybe I can see them not catching Mickey Mantle there, but Bush is the only one standing in the crowd and half of his arm seems to be missing.

    This card is supposed to be reprinted as well. Right now this is one of hte most popular cards on the market because it is considered an error. I know of one guy that got $20 out of this card that otherwise would be worth less then $1.
