TRADE YOU A THOUSAND BIDENS FOR ONE PALIN?:

Upper Deck Releases Sarah Palin and Joe Biden Collectible Trading Cards (Maury Brown, 01 October 2008, Biz of Baseball)

The new pair of illustrated cards -- numbered PP-15 (Palin) and PP-16 (Biden) -- brings to a close Upper Deck's extremely popular 2008 "Presidential Predictors" series of insert cards (see all of the cards online here on The Biz of Baseball). The rare cards will be sprinkled into random packs (SRP: $4.99) of Upper Deck's SP Authentic Baseball release next week.

Biden is depicted as longtime Washington Senator's pitcher Walter Johnson, a seasoned veteran who's looking for the biggest win of his career. Palin, meanwhile, is shown rounding the bases near the White House in a most unusual manner -- atop a dogsled and sporting a tiara – a fitting portrayal for a candidate who's determined to blaze new trails.

"The caricatures are great," added Stockholm. "We've taken some liberties with both of the VP candidates, but we believe collectors will see the cards as entertaining as well as informative."
