Baron Munchausen Trading Cards
A cool set of Baron Munchausen trading cards. I'm sure it would cost a lot of money to buy the complete set.

Update 8/14/03: I didn't intend to suggest that these cards are a hoax, as a few people queried me about. I linked to them because Munchausen (the fictional character) was a famous teller of tall tales, so the cards appealed to me as an example of hoax memorabilia.
