Derek Jeter, Mickey Mantle, George Bush?

Auto Date Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Topps has made quite a stir with the release of 2007 Topps Baseball.

The Derek Jeter base card shows Yankee Great Mickey Mantle and current President George Bush in the background.

Topps Spokesman Clay Luraschi admits that it was done on purpose by the Topps creative department.

The card had been selling for a couple of dollars last week but after appearing in numerous print, online and television publications, the cards sold for upwards of $300 on eBay.   Like always happens with cards that get national attention, the fury is wearing off and the card is now selling below $50.
