I Heart Political Cards

Did this man give the election to Obama? Some polls say maybe he did...

My first political cards were the Desert Storm set from 1991 and I even wrote to General Norman Schwarzkopf and had him sign his cards. It was my first through-the-mail autograph. Unfortunately, I don't have a scan for you as my card collection is spread throughout the midwest...some in Wisconsin, some in Kansas. Someday, the two collections will become one but as to when, I have no ieda...

Anyhow, this card's picture was opening day 1991 when then General Powell threw out the first pitch and Yankee Stadium.
