What Do Bernie Madoff, the Loch Ness Monster, and Alex Rodriguez Have In Common?

They are in the 2009 edition of Topps’ Allen & Ginter series of Trading Cards.

The set will consist of 350 cards: 230 baseball players, 30 rookies, 25 historic figures and 15 world champions. It also will include 50 short-printed cards. Among the unusual inclusions to the basic set are Old Faithful (the Yellowstone geyser), Brigham Young, Loch Ness Monster, Vincent Van Gogh, General George Custer, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.

Also, there will be a “world’s biggest hoaxes, hoodwinks and bamboozles” set that will include Charles Ponzi, The Runaway Bride, Enron, Cold Fusion, Bernie Madoff and The War of the Worlds.

(I believe A-Rod is part of the baseball players collection.)
