Jon Stewart Is Nolan Ryan!
Upper Deck's Presidential Predictors trading card collection, featuring caricatures of candidates in classic baseball poses, was released on Wednesday; Dallas-based Beckett Media was first to bring the news of the set last week. Only, when you go to the official Upper Deck site, where you'll also find word of a major-league promotion beginning February 25, you'll find only seven cards -- the so-called "Wild Card," pictured at right, is missing. (Also absent: the Hillary Clinton card on which Beckett reported last week.) But for those so inclined, the extra card's already available on the eBay -- for just a few cents, at present. And, sorry, but I want one -- poster-sized, please. --Robert Wilonsky
