You’ve got Ken Griffey, Jr’s rookie card. A-Rod’s too. Plus that Tom Seaver your dad gave you. And with the way the economy is going, they’re probably worth more than your house. Now you can add to your card-based net worth by including a Barack Obama presidential “rookie” card to your collection. For free.
Over at FreeObamaCards.com they are giving away five-card sets of limited-edition Obama cards. (Well, the cards are “free”, you still have shell out a few bucks for shipping.) All you gotta do is go get yours.
The sets are printed on card stock in full color on both sides, with the addition of metallic gold ink. One of the cards was created especially for the set by the digital artist, Justice. Ever heard of him? Me either, but he is hand signing every one of his cards, so if one day he becomes the next Warhol, you can retire.
Why give them away? According to the site, they believe everyone should have a chance to own a piece of history, even if they are struggling to stay afloat. A pretty fair deal. For a change.
