Allen & Ginter Cancels the Bernie Madoff Card...
Thanks to the Matt F. of the Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius for reporting that Topps is taking off the Bernie Madoff card from the Hoaxes, Hoodwinks, and Bamboozles mini insert card set.
The e-mail received by the Staggering Genius reads as follows:
"Topps announces that it is removing Bernie Madoff from its "World's Biggest Hoaxes, Hoodwinks and Bamboozles" insert from 2009 Allen & Ginter Baseball to comply with a request made by Major League Baseball. The card will be replaced with a subject to be named later."
Another reason why you never, ever, go by initial checklists posted...they are always subject to change.
Maybe now they can put in the executive of a certain rival card company as Madoff's replacement. After all, based on what's been the hot topic today in the hobby blogosphere, the timing couldn't be better.
And I thought there would be nothing worth writing about today.
