Got em, Got em, Need em, Got em, Need em

TSG shows off a collection we hope someday ends up in Joe Sports Fan's worthless card collection.

Here's the one that catches our eye.

No mention of the Governor's baseball past?

C'mon Topps!
For nearly four decades, Richardson, a prominent Democrat frequently mentioned as a possible presidential candidate, has maintained he was drafted as a pitcher in 1966 by the Kansas City Athletics.

But an Albuquerque Journal investigation found no record of Richardson being drafted by the A's, who have since moved to Oakland, or any other team. Informed by the newspaper of its findings, the governor acknowledged the error in a story published Thursday by the paper.

"After being notified of the situation (by Journal reporter Toby Smith) and after researching the matter ... I came to the conclusion that I was not drafted by the A's," Richardson said.
For the record, if anyone's looking to deal, I'm offering a Buddy Biancalana, Steve Jeltz and a Brook Jacoby for a gem mint 10 Kucinich.
