Abraham Lincoln on Famous Fabrics Ink Baseball Cards

Baseball cards aren't just for kids anymore, nor are the subjects related only to baseball. Topps, Upper Deck, and many other sport card manufacturers have created presidential cards. Here are some cards that feature Abraham Lincoln from Famous Fabrics Ink products.

Civil War: Abraham Lincoln (2012)

The Civil War Art baseball cards series is dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Each card is hand-drawn, making each card unique. There are 10 of each card in the product; each is numbered. They come in collector's cases with notations that include the series name and card number.

There were only 150 boxes made for the Civil War set. (They list for about $1300-1400 on eBay.) Each box contains one 1/1 cut signatures, one original Art card, and four base cards.

1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW: Abraham Lincoln (February 2012)

The 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW set highlights, of course, the White House. Each box has two cut signatures and four base cards. Of the two cut signatures per box, one is from the Presidential Cut Series and one is from the Non-Presidents cuts (which includes running mates--yes, Hannibal Hamlin) and some pretty cool dual signatures including presidential couples--sorry, no Lincoln with First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln).

Boxes are listed on eBay starting at $1500.

The 96 base card set includes Abraham Lincoln (Presidents 15--because George Washington is a redemption card so the series starts with 1 John Adams), and Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln (Presidential Couples 16). Though there are base cards for Presidential Pets, Lincoln dog Fido did not make the series. Each card is serially numbered to 10.
