LOL I had to chuckle today, while I was browsing books on Thomas Paine on Amazon, I came across this: http://www.amazon.com/Topps-American-Heritage-Revolution-Protective/dp/B001SVQZLS/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1244863717&sr=8-21

Is it crazy that I actually considered how cool it would be for me to display that card in my office? LOL Until I decided it might make me look like a complete dork. ROFL

Great American Historical Cards - Collect ONE or all 150!!!

I've never seen them before - very interesting. And, no, I don't think you would be a dork for having one :-)

They would probably be a good conversation starter.

:D I'm glad there are other history buffs out there who would not think me...strange... for owning trading cards of famous historical figures. For me, it would be more exciting to collect those cards than sports trading cards. ;) But I can just see my DH rolling his eyes at me as I excitedly showed him my newest acquisitions... LOL
