Buffett’s in the cards

May 2, 2008

In looking for something new to hawk to some 32,000 investors at the meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, this weekend, Berkshire-owned Business Wire will be selling Buffett baseball cards.

About 2,500 packs of “Berkyville Wiredcats” cards will be available. Each pack of six cards will sell for $10. The proceeds will go to Buffett’s favorite local charity, the CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska. CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, is an organization for abused and neglected children within the court system.

But will the cards come with Wrigley’s gum?

I believe that the baseball cards should include famous saying by the Sage in order to spread the good gospel of business amongst the youth who will be the investors of tomorrow
