HilTopps has presidential election fever.

Along with stars like Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Howard, the new Topps set includes a dozen cards featuring presidential candidates (six Democrats and six Republicans). Sadly, fans of Chris Dodd, Duncan Hunter, Mike Gravel, and Tom Tancredo will not find their candidate among the set. On average, one candidate card will be found in every ninth pack, which each cost about $3 and contain a dozen baseball cards.

The presidential cards won’t be sold seperately, so you’ll have to spend hundreds of dollars before you put together a complete candidate set. But, dude, it will be so worth it!

  1. The Mariners don’t need Erik Bedard at the price that the O’s are asking. Of course they could use a stud like Bedard, but trading Adam Jones (who is under control for like a million years at 400k) would be a massive downgrade the defense. Run prevention is what the Mariners need and defense is significantly undervalued when talking about this.

    The Mariners aren’t one player away from making a run, so this deal doesn’t make sense. Looking at the roster, this team cannot beat the Angels, Indians, Red Sox or Yankees with or without Bedard, so why hemorrhage the future for him?

    I’ll trade you my Roger Clemens rookie card for a Dennis Kucinich…

  3. I just barfed a little bit.
