U.S. Presidents

Bronzed Heroes: Lyndon Johnson

Continuing the President’s Day theme here is a card featuring Lyndon Johnson. On the same trip that allowed me to see the George H.W. Bush Presidential Museum I was able to go to the Johnson Museum that is located in Austin. This bust greets visitors as they wait to enter the museum. What I loved the most about the establishment is that it was free. I am not a cheapskate, but I love that he wanted it kept free so that anyone could visit it.  (more…)

Bronzed Heroes: George H.W. Bush 2

Since today is President’s Day I thought that I would release a couple of of my bronzed heroes cards that I have made for Presidents. A couple of years ago I was in Houston to see Purdue in the NCAA Tournament. While there we visited the Bush Museum on the campus of Texas A&M. I liked this statue enough to get a picture of it.  (more…)


Bronzed Heroes – George H.W. Bush

The thing that I like about this set is that it not entirely sports related. This site will never delve into the political arena to express my views. That is not really what it is about. I do like looking at some of the Presidents though so they will show up from time to time. With the Presidential run for the nomination heating up I thought that I should post this card of George H.W. Bush. This card is a not entirely without a sports story as George was the captain of the Yale baseball team. (more…)


Bronzed Heroes – Harry S. Truman

As I said in the last post for a Bronzed Hero card I was not just going to stick to athletes. I thought that the first non athlete in the set should be Harry Truman. In addition to being a sports junkie I also enjoy learning about the various Presidents that have served this country. It amazing how some of them have gotten into the highest office in the land. Probably the best story of all of those would be Harry Truman. It would take way too much time to get into here, but he went from failure after failure to a run of luck that saw him become the President during World War II. I guess with all the weight on his shoulders you could debate whether or not it was luck to end up in office when he did. (more…)
