Obama's rookie card

You will soon be able to find your very own President Obama trading cards.

Topps Company is selling 90 "Inaugural Edition" trading cards spanning the political life of President-elect Obama.

The color photo collectibles are packed with Barack Obama facts and quotes and will be sold for $1.99 in foil-sealed packs of six before the January inauguration.

The cards document the 47-year-old Obama's political life, including his time as an Illinois senator and his presidential acceptance speech in Chicago's Grant Park.

The cards also feature snapshots from his childhood in Hawaii, at Harvard Law School and his work as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago.
I can't wait for the companion set.  "I'll trade you two Tony Rezko cards for one William Ayers bombing the Capitol special."

Remember kids, when you stick Barack Obama in your bicycle spokes, make sure your tires are properly inflated.
