Bush and Giuliani are Nothing New

There has been an awful lot of trading card buzz around politics these days. Presidents, Presidential candidates, and the Mick seem to be showing up a lot on the fronts of baseball cards where current ballplayers used to be. Topps and Upper Deck are fighting for supremacy and control over our collectible dollars. Inserts and relics just won't do anymore.

But this is nothing new. Topps has been pulling these stunts for 30 years.
Check out this 1971 Topps Jim Fregosi card!
I didn't know Tricky Dick was an Angels fan!
Editor's note: I was going to pluralize Fregosi, but Fregosis seemed like some rare skin disease that I wanted no part of.
Hope you enjoy the card!
