Presidents of the United States have romantic, polarizing pasts. We remember some as great men and others have simply been forgotten.

But to rise to President is a great achievement, one that will be recorded and taught to children everywhere. Presidents and those associated with the White House have their own group of collectors, chasing after rare products and coins that depict their images.

Famous Fabrics is releasing a set that should appeal to a broad group of collectors on Presidents, Vice Presidents, First Ladies and respective associates – aptly named 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. The product is scheduled to be released mid-February.

Each box bearing the street address of the White House will have six cards: two cut signatures, one will be a Presidential Cut (single or dual), and four limited base cards. The second cut autograph will be from one of the following subsets: Cabinet Members, Vice-Presidents, White House Kids, First Lady, White House Visitor and Camelot.

Some of the themes for the Presidential cut cards are Presidential Couples, Running Mates, Presidential Opponents and Forever Linked. The base card subsets include Presidents, Presidential Couples and Presidential Pets. Each base card is numbered to just /10.

Famous Fabrics is keeping the set limited. Just 240 boxes will be produced. But the small amount means collectors will be able to get prime cards in each box.

Cards that should get the most interest are in the Forever Linked subset.

Just think, you could own a card with John F. Kennedy‘s and Marilyn Monroe’s signatures together or Richard Nixon’s and Carl Bernstein’s. Looking for something a little more current, there is the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky cut card lurking in one of the boxes.

There is also a Forever Linked cut card of Ronald Reagan and John Hinckley, the man who attempted to assassinate President Reagan in 1981 and injured Reagan along with three others.

The Presidential cuts include some of the most well-known Presidents, the ones we always did our book reports on in school: John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant and others.

Of the Presidential couples Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, William and Helen Taft, Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson, John and Jacqueline Kennedy and Rutherford and Lucy Hayes can be found.

And the Presidential opponents offers some interesting cards with John Kennedy/Richard Nixon, Harry Truman/Thomas Dewey, Ronald Reagan/Walter Mondale, William McKinley/William Jennings Bryan and more.

Here’s the checklist for the base cards.

There is no available checklist for the cut signatures or a suggested retail price yet.

    A base checklist was added, but there wasn’t a checklist on the others. I don’t know how many of a signature one president there are, but consider that every cut auto is a 1/1. You can’t make more than one.

    No price as of yet either.

    Is there a company out there that doesn’t steal ideas from another company.

    Let’s hope they don’t try and sneak in Presidential Pets dog hair memorabilia.

    Did a retail price for the packs ever materialize?
