Topps Puts Giuliani In Red Sox WS Celebration

One of the cards in Topps upcoming 2008 series -- a shot of the Red Sox's on-field celebration after clinching the World Series last October -- features an unexpected participant: Rudy Giuliani.

You may recall Rudy pledging his loyalty to the Red Sox last fall, as soon as his Chokers were sent packing by Cleveland. Topps manager Clay Luraschi: "We thought it would make for a funny card, since the Red Sox won. We thought, let's put him in the championship dog pile."

An abomination.

I don't think it's very funny having Rudes in that.

No turncoat will taint our beloved Sox.

It fits Rudi's M.O.

Except he's not wearing a dress.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Disgusting.

Well, at least he's not getting anywhere near the white house.

This started last year with Bush on the Jeter card. I think with that one they didn't announce it and just let people discover it.

At least if Rudy was in a dress, the card would have been arguably kinda funny. And kids who get the card won't get it at all. Embarrassingly dumb stunt.

If it bugs Rudy even a little, it's worth it.

I want one of these.

"Matsuzaka, meanwhile, has turned his Mohawk from last season into something of a mullet. It's definitely a party in the back."
