Souvenir Watch: Obama Trading Cards

A periodic look at Obama tchotchkes to memorialize the big day.
obamacard.jpg Item: Obama Trading Card
Maker: Topps Company Inc.
Price: $1.99 for package of six foil-wrapped cards, plus one sticker
Why: The "90-card set will document, in colorful photos and fact-filled text, Obama’s remarkable, only-in-America life story, beginning with his humble childhood and culminating with his incredible rise to the White House," according to a press release from the company.
Inauguration Watch Verdict: Design seems kind of slapdash. Still, it'll probably be more valuable than a lot of other trading cards with politicians on them.

The best souvenirs for the Inauguration will be at Ann Hand's jewelry store in Washington, DC! She has just designed a new pin to commemorate the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President. I stopped by her store the other day and placed my order immediately! I highly suggest to any others out there that want something special to check her store out. She also has a website at annhand.com

I don't know... I think this card might be the next Billy Ripken of political trading cards:
