Topps announced on Thursday that its upcoming non-sport set of President-elect Barack Obama will include a card him in his Punahou High School basketball uniform on a vintage 1978 Topps basketball card design.
And if that’s not enough, there will be a “first dog” redemption card for a Topps card featuring the to-be-determined White House pup.
