Obama's wrist watch is from a promo catalog

Obama’s wrist watch is from a promo catalog

onthedash.com has done extensive research to discover that Barack Obama wore a TAG-Heuer Series 1500 Two-Tone Divers watch from the early or mid-1990’s until late 2007.

President Obama trading cards

President Obama trading cards

About a week ago I purchase a pack of Topps President Obama trading cards. I can’t quite make up my mind about the cards. When I first opened the pack I was a bit disappointed that the cards were a bit dippy. I was hoping they would be more educational and professional. But then again […]
