I thought I saw that too, but then Bush caught my eye.

How can you say it's not photoshopped, Money? Is that a cardboard cutout of Mantle they propped up there then?

And wouldn't the folks in the stands be staring at GW Bush standing up and waving to someone in the distance?? I would be.

How much is it going for currently? Just because I'm curious. And also, are there others like that one, or is Jeter special?


They're facsimile autographs and they're on all the base cards like that. Jeter is the only stupid stuff that ruins the card though.

They were going for a few dollars a couple of days ago and I didn't think anything of it but from a quick ebay search it seems that it went into the $100's. 8-o

I was thinking photoshopped in the sense that someone took the Jeter card and altered it. But it was photoshopped/edited, just by Topps and mass produced. ;-)

Ah ok, just the base set. A bit surprised they did all of that without making it an insert (or even a full subset) card. :-?

George Bush isn't a Yankees fan.

I have to say, that card looks pretty bad.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.
