Welcome to the heady, high stakes world of bubble gum trading cards -- Capitol style.
Instead of sports figures, these "American Leader Cards" feature the proud, smiling faces of members of Congress, complete with such facts and figures as committees, last election results, previous offices and biographical information.
Jim Warlick, owner of several political memorabilia shops in Washington, came up with the cards as a way to interest young people in politics. "Most kids can recite vital statistics about their favorite baseball players but can't even name their congressman," he says.
