It’s Election Day. That means Facebook and Twitter have been inundated with voting talk.

The presidential election won’t be decided for hours – maybe not until tomorrow – so in the meantime, look at these cards of president and nominees from over the years.

    Seems to me I remember a Mother’s Cookies Presidential set sometime during the early ’90’s, and I think it was the first American Pie set that included a very cool JFK card that had a piece of the Berlin Wall.

    Yep on the Mothers set. Presidents have had a place in a lot of products, particularly since the 2000s.

    A rather comprehensive checklist and pricing for those cards ran in this magazine:
