Why Does Usain Bolt NOT Have a Topps Allen & Ginter Card Yet?

Just throwing it out there.

The only reason I can think of is that Topps has figured he hasn't reached his full potential yet. When he puts the 100m world record out of reach for the next 50 years or so, then maybe they'll give him one?

Discuss.

Consider me unimpressed along with Topps. Who cares how fast he can run if he can't solve the Ginter Code?

It's not for lack of trying; Topps doesn't have a camera with an fast enough shutter that can capture him without blur.

If a contract is needed (and I'd guess that would be the case) maybe he has declined for some reason or asked for more than a standard contract calls for. Or maybe Topps is just ignorant.

I think he came out of the blue in 08, and for 2012 an excellent insert set would be champions of the summer games. That's at least a 25 card set of some of the last centuries greatest athletes (Cassius Clay aka Ali, Carl Lewis, Usain Bolt, et al).

If you go to Jamaica, this guys face is on everything imaginable. Last time I went, there was a whole shop in the airport with nothing but Bolt stuff, and not normal stuff either! Stuff like ash trays, ties, even water shoes! I'm pretty sure it's not him turning down a contract!
