The Other All-Star Ballot

Though my junkiedom leaves me susceptible to shamelessly obsessing on the “horse race” aspects of politics, I believe it despicable that the political press covers the presidential campaign like it’s a sporting event. Nevertheless, I have to admit I find Topps’ presidential candidate trading cards to be unbelievably cool. Happy Fourth of July. And wherever you stand, don’t forget to stand in a voting booth on the Fourth of November.

    These are alright, but the best cards by far were the trading cards Topps made in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. I think they really helped the country though its darkest hour.
