World Leader Trading Cards

All of the world's (approx.) 190 leaders in full colour!
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

I read once that 25% of American grade school students couldn't identify the current U.S. president! Here's a chance for kids to learn their world leaders. The front of the card would be a colour photo the leader, with the country and his or her official title. The back could contain a small map of the world, with the country lead in solid colour or outlined. Stats should include dates of election/appointment etc, size of country, type of government, up for re-election date, and other pertinent information. Smaller countries would be printed in smaller quantities, hence increasing their collectability, with limits on the really huge ones... "China AGAIN?!?"...

       Semi-baked with the Enduring Freedom set from Topps cards. I think this set only contained good guys and bad guys, though.

       Yuck! That enduring freedom thing is creepy, nationalistic and opportunistic. I like [Cedar Park]'s idea, though. It's good, and edumacational, too.

       Yeah, nowhere near as good as the Desert Storm cards.

       [UnaBubba] Self-serving? How so? (I don't live in the U.S.)

       I can see crazy dictators becoming hot collector's items. "Look daddy, it's a Stalin rookie card!"
