Have you heard about this crazy baseball card that has President George W. Bush and hall of fame baseball player Mickey Mantle pictured in the background? They have obviously been added into the original photo by an employee. Topps said that they didn't notice the alteration before the cards went to print. They plan on re-issuing a corrected version of the card soon. These cards have been selling on eBay today for as high as $300. Do you think this was really a mistake or do you think they are just trying to hype up their product?

I saw this on ESPN as they were displaying this one of their talk shows and getting other commentators opinions about this card. I think they are trying to hype up their product because the baseball card industry has not been doing as well in recent years as they did when I was much younger. Whenever a company is struggling, they will try and find a way to get their products notice or come up with something new and different. It was definitely very interesting to see that card but since Bush was in it, I will not buy it. LOL
