WBZ-TV in Boston has a report that shows the venerable Topps baseball card company knows its way around the public relations block.
To drum up publicity for the company’s new MLB baseball card set, a card showing former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani celebrating the Red Sox World Series victory will be included in the set. Giuliani (in)famously claimed he rooted for the Red Sox will campaigning for president last year in New Hampshire.
The now-failed presidential candidate was photoshopped by Topps into an image of Boston’s on-field celebration after defeating the Rockies in the 2007 fall classic. The front and back of the card are after the jump.
We’re still waiting for the Topps card with Dennis Kucinich celebrating with the aliens at Area 51.
