Wow, what an abomination. I can only imagine what I would have felt opening up a wax pack only to find a Mo Udall or a John Anderson. I think I would have been beyond pissed.

The only explanation I can fathom for this is that it's an attempt at humor fallen terribly flat. Who wants their baseball mixed up with politics any more than it is, and what KID wants their baseball cards sullied by the likes of these careerist slugs?!

What's worse is the "insert" card showing a photoshopped Giuliani celebrating with the Red Sox in the middle of Coors Field -- which I was "lucky" enough to pull.

Please. The baseball card industry is in sad shape indeed if these are the stunts it needs to attract buyers. (Hint: More easily attainable autographs and less throwaway crap = more customers).

Wow, that's just absurd.

I seriously thought this was YF with too much time on his hands and a new Photo Shop license. That is nuts!

"What's worse is the "insert" card showing a photoshopped Giuliani celebrating with the Red Sox in the middle of Coors Field -- which I was "lucky" enough to pull."

Sorry, that's funny!

Yeah, I agree it's funny. But I would have rather clipped it out of an editorial page than pulled it out of a pack.

What would be funny was if it said on the back of Romney's card that he's a lefty.

For some reason, I read the title as Knoblauch.. I know, it's not even close, haha, but I didn't get the title until I realized!

Looking back at what I got, let me say I'm even more aggravated now that I realize that the MItt card was not a "bonus" but one of the 10 cards in the pack. So this is a case of completely false advertising. For $2, I expected 10 baseball cards (or, as it says on the bottom of the foil, 8 if there was a "relic" in there). Instead I got 9 baseball cards and Mitt Romney. So I was ripped off.

As for he Mitt card itself, credit the Topps folks for a perhaps unintentional joke. His bio begins, "Mitt Romney has been many things to many people...."
