The mania over baseball cards faded a while ago. So somebody at Topps decided to create some buzz by inserting George Bush and Mickey Mantle into the background of Derek Jeter’s card.
“A few people have mentioned it to me but I haven’t seen it,” Jeter said. “I don’t know anything else.”
The folks at Sports Collectors Daily figured it out four days ago. Now the mainstream media is picking up this “story” and running with it.
Meanwhile, what a terrible card to begin with. That’s the best photo they have of Jeter?
