If she hadn’t already, Kate Upton pretty much stole the crown of Queen of the Internet this week with the incredible video of her doing the Cat Daddy that YouTube actually deemed too inappropriate – thankfully, they wised up. But now comes the news that Topps is recognizing Upton’s fame with a limited edition, autographed trading card in their upcoming 7th series of Allen & Ginter’s World Champions set.
Move the f*ck over, Honus Wagner.
The 350-card base set, which will arrive in July, will feature a myriad of baseball stars from today and yesterday, special ‘mini’ insert cards, and framed ‘Relic’ cards of MLB legends. Also included, are autographed cards of famous baseball players (Stan Musial, Albert Pujols, Willie Mays) and numerous non-baseball celebs including Upton along with other notable celebrities including Bobby Knight, Erin Andrews and Arnold Palmer.

Knight and Palmer, whatever. But Erin Andrews? Look, we’ve always appreciated the fact that Andrews was the ultimate package of sports brains and beauty, but that train has left the station. It’s time for the Samantha Steele era to arrive already.
As for Upton’s card, this news couldn’t come at a better time, because, honestly, I just wanted to post this new batch of outtakes from her photo shoot with world famous (allegedly pervy) photographer Terry Richardson. Yerrrrrrr welcome.

In case you missed it, here’s that Cat Daddy video again, because every man should watch it 6,000 times.
I also included this and the following picture of Upton and my favorite comedian, Aziz Ansari, because I find it inspirational.
