A buddy of mine bought a pack of Topps Opening Day baseball cards the other day and found a couple of celebrities in the Derek Jeter card who probably weren’t there when the photo was taken.
Find Bush and Mickey Mantle in the pic.
And of course they know about it, but still…
“We saw it in the final proof and we could have axed it,” Topps spokesman Clay Luraschi told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “But we decided to let it run, we wanted to print it. We thought it was hilarious.”
The card will be changed when Topps issues a complete set at midseason, Luraschi said.
Jeter said he had not seen the card.
That story was from February. Wonder if Jeter has seen the card yet?
