The George Bush Baseball Card Stirs a Who's on First Feud
The ruckus started last month when, unbeknownst to Hull and Cook, Topps, which claims it printed only one set of 100 Bush cards, presented the entire set to the President at White House ceremonies. About the same time, Hull and Cook had read about the limited edition in Topps Magazine. "I called Topps to find out what the chances were of someone having one of these cards, and I was told there was no chance at all," says Hull, 31. Though no one could explain the existence of an additional card, a Topps executive nevertheless called Hull and accused the card shop partners of being in possession of stolen property. The company is still mulling over strategy, but Hull and Cook aren't intimidated. "It's like we won the lottery and Topps wants to take it away from us," says Hull, who has been offered $10,000 for the card.
As if to add injury to insult, the guys at Who's on First also face a lawsuit filed by Jim Danner of Champaign, who claims he offered to pay 15 cents for the card last December when it was still displayed on the shop's bulletin board. Hull calls the suit ridiculous and vows to play hardball with any and all comers. As for Topps, he says, it "asked if we'd give it back if George Bush asked us to. I said only if he came here or we got to go to the White House."
