Celebrity Rookie Cards: Dan Aykroyd & John Cusack

They aren't perfect, but they are my attempt at the world of virtual cards. They are the Celebrity Rookie Cards.

Today I am featuring the first odd shaped card, the 1975 Topps TallBoys. Dan Aykroyd is best known as Jake Blues from The Blues Brothers, but Aykroyd has a lengthy acting resume. One of his roles was in Celtic Pride, a little-known movie from 1996. Aykroyd plays a passionate Celtics fan who (through a series of comic incidents) wears a Jazz uniform. The movie might not have been a big hit, but it helped make a 'big' Celeb Rookie Card.
Chicagoan John Cusack played Chicago White Sox player Buck Weaver in 8 Men Out. This made my job a lot easier. My only problem was having the Pepsi sign in the background. I would have liked to PhotoShop a Coca-Cola sign there, but it really wasn't worth the effort.
