President Barack Obama Collector Trading Cards Hobby Box (2009 Topps)
Topps pays special tribute to President Barack Obama with an exclusive 90-card set, documenting Obama's remarkable, only-in-America life story, from Waikiki to the White House!
24 packs per box, each pack contains 6 President Obama base cards plus 1 sticker.
The Topps 90-card series documents, in nearly 200 color photos and fact-filled text, Obama's only-in-America life story, beginning with his humble childhood and culminating with his incredible rise to the White House.
Each of the 90 cards comprising the Barack Obama Inaugural Edition tell a different and compelling story of his life - from his childhood in Hawaii to his college days at Columbia and Harvard...from his job as a community organizer on Chicago's South Side to his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004...from his whirlwind presidential campaign to his rousing victory speech on election night. Poignant relationships with his parents, grandparents, wife, children and other family members are featured, as well as those with political figures and global leaders, in photos and words, many culled from Obama's own speeches and writings.
The series also includes:
- Newsworthy appearances of influential public figures such as Oprah Winfrey, Caroline Kennedy and Bruce Springsteen.
- A "first dog" redemption card which entitles fans to receive a printed Topps card featuring the to-be-determined White House pup
- A rare Obama card pictured in his Punahou High School basketball uniform - within a vintage 1978 Topps basketball card design
- Foil stamped inaugural parallel cards
- Silver foil sticker parallels which include powerful slogans and quotes as well as photographic imagery
