As the outgoing Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke has been treated to a week of appreciation for his eight years of service, including a staff reception this past Tuesday. As a parting gift, Bernanke was given Photoshopped baseball cards showing him as a player on the Washington Nationals. Bernanke, a big baseball fan, loves the Nats and has attended many games over the years.

Check out the card which appears to include Bryce Harper's body:

It even has stats on the back:

Bernanke spent eight years as Chairman and became a Nationals fan once he moved to Washington. Along the way he's made 226 speeches, 79 Congressional testimonies and two appearances on '60 Minutes.' Those are pretty decent numbers.
