Story Summary

It was a summer of collecting American presidents cards from bubble gum packages and the rich kid, Rollie Tremaine, was determined to be the first to complete his set with the most elusive card, President Cleveland. But Jerry got wind of a new shipment uptown, found a Grover Cleveland and sold it to Rollie for five dollars to help his brother buy new shoes to attend the Prom, sacrificing the completion of his own set.
