OTP 2016 July 25: Card Shark - Bikini trading-card king Brian Wallos expands his empire to politics

Wallos’s Decision 2016 political trading-card set, released in mid-April, is perhaps the most ambitious and comprehensive effort to date for cable-news addicts who also grew up collecting baseball cards. Instead of documenting when a player was drafted in what round, Wallos reminds collectors of the exact moment each candidate dropped out of the race. And rather than commemorating highlights, like Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit, Decision 2016 cards capture seminal moments, like Hillary Clinton facing tough questions at the Benghazi hearings and Pope Francis condemning Donald Trump’s views on immigration. Borrowing another baseball-card gimmick, one out of every 288 packs contains an “authentic cut-signature” card from a presidential candidate, and one of every six packs includes a special “Trump Under Fire” insert card documenting one of the Republican nominee’s many controversial moments.
