To the victor, goes the special Upper Deck card

6 11 2008

Upper Deck has announced their special Upper Deck card to commemorate Barack Obama becoming the 44th president of the United States. The card will be in shops mid November, and anyone near one of the shops listed who can pick one up for me should send an email. Otherwise, I’m driving for a couple hours to score mine.

Sure it’s a little goofy looking, but it was the back of the card that I now choose to nitpick:

Just like Tony Dungy’s accomplishment in 2007 when he became the first African-American head coach in NFL history to win a Super Bowl…

Sure, Upper Deck. One African American garnering somewhere around 70 million votes in a nationwide campaign to run the country that’s lasted for the last two years is akin to coaching and winning a football game. Good equivalency.

No one has. If you could, that’d be awesome. Let me know what you’d want in return.
