Giuliani the collectible


In what has to be one of the most devastating cardboard slapdowns of all times, someone at Topps thought it would be funny to put Rudy Giuliani on a Red Sox baseball card.

And not just any baseball card, but one where The Beantowners are celebrating last season’s World Series victory, a moment which cast dread and misery into the hearts of all true Yankees fans.

The card will be a 1-in-70 variant of the regular 2008 set. Someone at Topps must really have it in for “America’s Mayor” — who spent upwards of $50 million to win just one delegate in his spectacularly unsuccessful presidential bid — but who could say Rudy didn’t deserve this? In a classic betrayal born of expediency last year, the one-time die-hard Yankee fan claimed that he was rooting for Boston in the World Series with the lame-ass explanation “I’m an American league fan.” As if. Not even Mitt Romney has ever made a flip flop so calculated.

Giuliani, who appeared on his own Topps baseball card in 2004, was not actually present for the Red Sox’s triumphant win last year; that why God invented Photoshop, and not a moment too soon.
