Meanwhile, Beckett is reporting that UD2 will have a Hillary. Maybe they can throw in Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul?
UPDATE #1 2/7: UD set up a website where you can see the whole set.
Apparently "Hillary Clinton as Morganna The Kissing Bandit" has been pulled. (Damn political correctness.)
The Jon Stewart vs. Bill O'Reilly "Wild Card" is not shown, but is still on the checklist.
Still no card of Ron Paul.
I guess it's a shot at Topps "Campaign 2008" insert. Maybe not, but Upper Deck's "Presidential Predictors" -- a nine-card "stealth" insert in '08 Upper Deck series one -- is the funniest thing I've seen, like, ever.
2008 UD1 dropped today, and I haven't seen any on eBay (yet), and nor do I know what the pack insertion ratios are.
Here's the complete checklist:
|Card #||Player||Print Run||Team|
|2008||PP-1||Rudy Giuliani (as Jeffrey Maier)|
|2008||PP-2||John Edwards (as Moonlight Graham)|
|2008||PP-3||John McCain (as Ted Williams)|
|2008||PP-4||Barack Obama (as Steve Bartman)|
|2008||PP-5||Mitt Romney (as Carlton Fisk)|
|2008||PP-6||Fred Thompson (as Babe Ruth)|
|2008||PP-7||Hillary Clinton (as Morganna the Kissing Bandit)|
|2008||PP-8||Al Gore (as Jose Offerman) with a cameo by George W. Bush (as Chuck Knoblauch)|
Yes, that's Bill O'Reilly playing the "Robin Ventura" to Jon Stewart's "Nolan Ryan."
An absolute stroke of genius! +1 goes to UD
