It's often a tough task figuring out the exact source of a photo from any given card set that doesn't deal directly with a particular show, movie or event. But it can happen.
Case in point, below is a card that arrived yesterday. It may show volleyball players Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, but I bought it for the yuckster in the middle. For whatever reason, I hold onto cards with presidents. I'd hold onto Canadian Prime Ministers too if they made more of them.
As soon as I saw this card, I recalled back to last year when some hilarious photos surfaced of Bush getting cozy with some soon-to-be Olympians. May-Treanor and Walsh were two of them. Here's a photo from the same day:
And one more for good measure:

By now, most of you have probably seen these pictures. I've seen them several times but they're still worth a laugh.
And now back to the topic at hand. Check out the clothes: White bikini? Check. Red and black bikini? Check! Faux light denim collared shirt? Check!!
So the photo from the card in question was taken August 9, 2008. Thanks, Internets! You make sleuthing fun. And thank you Topps for creating a memento to commemorate one of Bush's final acts of unintentional hilarity.
